Almost half of young Poles considering emigrating

A new survey indicates that 46 percent of young Poles are considering emigrating once they have completed their studies.

The survey, which was carried out by the Polish Human Resources Management Association (PSZK), suggests that the trend of Poles leaving their homeland following Poland's 2004 accession to the EU is far from over.

“These results are extraordinarily high,” noted PSZK chairman Professor Janusz Czapiński, in an interview with the Rzeczpospolita daily.

However, he stressed that “it is not clear how many of these people will actually decide to emigrate.”

He added that under 23 percent of prospective graduates actually confirmed that they intended to leave Poland within the next two years.

Czapiński said that generally, young Poles believe that Polish companies “have them much less to offer than their competitors in the West.

“They claim that companies in the UK, Ireland and Germany offer them better opportunities for development and work in their chosen profession.”
