Poland, a country in central Europe, has a vibrant cultural background. It has a diverse geography and is endowed with beautiful scenery. Everything visually appealing, from palaces and handcrafted jewelry to food and cuisine, can be found here.

Covid-19 had spread throughout Poland by March 2020. The economic sector was also severely impacted by this pandemic. However, according to KPMG's government and institution measures in response to Covid-19, the Polish government supports the system through financial packages and assistance. Poland is currently recovering from the pandemic's aftermath. It was one of the least impacted areas in the European Union.

According to the OECD Better Life Index, Poland performs well in some data-driven measures of well-being. According to them, Poland has better health, education, jobs and earnings, work-life balance, social security, civic engagement, and housing facilities than the average.

6. Major industries in Poland

For decades, three major industries dominated the Polish economy: agriculture, manufacturing, and mining. Even though agriculture and manufacturing continue to play important roles in the country's future, they are gradually losing ground to newly emerging industries.


The automotive industry is a vital part of the Polish economy. Its importance is mirrored in the labor market. The automotive manufacturing industry employs approximately 180,000 people, making it the country's fourth largest industrial employer.

Business Services

The Business Services Sector, which includes BPO, IT, SSC, and R&D firms, is one of Poland's fastest growing industries. It benefits from the global trend of centralized back office functions, where the availability of skilled and dedicated employees, as well as labor cost arbitrage, are the most important factors when deciding on future business locations.

Defense and aerospace

Poland has embarked on an ambitious plan to invest in and modernize its armed forces. When combined with the statutory target of military spending at 2% of GDP (one of the highest among NATO countries, and set to rise in the not-too-distant future), the outlook for the Polish defense sector appears promising.

Information and Communications Technology

Poland maintains its leading position as a near-shore destination for Western and Northern European ICT firms. Poland was also the 'number one' destination in the CEE region for R&D projects, primarily driven by international software firms.


Furthermore, the ICT industry has an impact on the growth of the outsourcing sector in Poland. The average year-on-year growth of this sector in Poland is estimated to be around 20%, and according to the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, Poland is home to more than 40% of all outsourcing centers in CEE.


The main criterion of prosperity considered by key policy stakeholders in Poland is closing the infrastructure gap between modern society's demands and current capabilities. Since Poland's accession to the EU, investments in various types of infrastructure have played a critical role in the country's economic convergence.

7. Hiring cost in Poland

The salary range is average, with a higher maximum salary. It covers all housing, transportation, and benefits. Each job has a different salary range.

8. Employment laws Poland

Poland employment compliance entails a number of factors, beginning with your employment contract. There are two types of employment contracts that differ in length:

- Short-term contracts may only include a three-month probation period.

- Fixed-term contracts are available for up to 33 months of work and can be renewed three times. If the same parties enter into a fixed-term contract for the fourth time in a row, or if the total period of employment in the contract exceeds 33 months, the contract becomes open-ended.

You must follow the terms of the contract you choose. If you hire a Poland employee for a probationary period, the terms of that period should be outlined in the employment contract. If the agreement does not specify working hours, payment frequency, or annual leave entitlements, you must notify the employee in writing within seven days of the contract's start date.

4. Mathematical abilities, critical thinking abilities, and higher-order problem-solving abilities: Logical thinking is required to solve the customers' problems and suggest possible solutions. Additionally, new and authentic content that fosters higher-order thinking skills must be developed. Accounting and finance jobs require strong mathematical skills.

5. Flexibility and time management: Workers must be able to plan ahead of time in order to meet deadlines and maintain a work-life balance. This reduces stress and makes better use of available time.

10. Economic landscape in Poland

According to the World Bank, Covid-19 had the least impact on the Polish economy. However, GDP will fall by around 3% in 2020. It was the first contraction in output in more than 20 years. To reduce poverty and boost growth, well-planned financial programs were implemented. The business environment and wages both improved.

During the pandemic, Poland faced numerous challenges. The government sector attempted to support the economy by ensuring the flow of money and by assisting their people through good policies. In addition, the aging population complicates labor supply. With the decrease in pandemic intensity and cases, all sectors will be revitalized soon. ‍
