The domestic employing companies are increasingly faced with the fact that it is difficult to find quality Hungarian workers, and they are experiencing an increasing fluctuation, which results in an increasing number of employing workers from third countries. Recent research by Pannon-Work Zrt. examined the plans of HR managers regarding the employment of third-country workers, the experiences already gained, the advantages and disadvantages, as well as their general findings on the labor market.

60% of the respondents do not agree that their company’s workforce is available with sufficient quality and sufficient quantity of Hungarian workers. Based on the answers, the biggest recruitment challenges are the inadequate quality of the Hungarian workforce (84.6%), the high level of turnover (56.4%) and the general labor shortage (35.9%). Labor problems and the events taking place in the world have rearranged the map of the labor market even more, and more and more companies are employing workers from third countries. Almost half of the surveyed companies, i.e. 43.5%, already use it, and 36.4% have the topic on their agenda, while 63.6% do not plan to.
