The activity of professionals and managers in the labour market – ANTAL Survey 2020

Where do specialists and managers want to work?

The latest ranking of the relocation attractiveness of cities Warsaw (+7 p.p.) is gaining popularity among middle and senior management representatives, at the expense of Kraków and Wrocław, where every second respondent would be willing to work. The TriCity took such a high second place in the ranking for the first time. Smaller centers are also recording higher and higher results.


October 26 this year Antal published the 10th edition of the report “Activity of specialists and managers on the labor market”. The study was carried out using the CAWI method between August 27 and September 16, 2020. 2,067 respondents from all over Poland took part in it. It shows that currently 69% of respondents, if they received an attractive job offer, would decide to move, therefore the openness of specialists and managers, invariably from last year, is assessed as high (increase by 1 percentage point). The readiness to relocate is most often declared by employees of administration departments (78%) – this is an increase by 20 percentage points compared to the previous year. Senior management (76%) and representatives of the engineering industry (75%) are also open to this option. On the other hand, representatives of HR and IT departments declare openness to relocation the least frequently.

Readiness to relocate in Poland, regardless of the pandemic, remains at a high level. Although employers and candidates are currently facing a lot of organizational challenges, there is also awareness that it is worth moving for an attractive job offer that will enable career development – comments Artur Skiba, President of Antal.


TriCity has surpassed its competitors

The TriCity recorded an increase in the percentage of specialists and managers’ indications by 2 pp and moved up from fourth place to second. The popularity of the seaside agglomeration is influenced by the growing number of international companies offering attractive jobs and traditionally – aspects related to the natural environment and the beautiful location of the city.

Until a few years ago, the quality of life factor was an addition, and not the essence of the offer of a given location. However, it has been known for several years that it is one of the basic factors ensuring the interest and inflow of the most attractive staff, especially to the service and technology sectors, which in turn excel in innovation and determine the speed and pace of development. For a decade, the Tri-City has consciously led regional cities in terms of combining the employment offer with the possibilities of the highest quality of life among Polish large cities, as evidenced by, among others, the project “Live more Pomerania”. This year, we have also launched a recruitment portal for people from outside the region who want to find a good job and live here – says Marcin Grzegory, Deputy Director, Invest in Pomerania.
