MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the study is to analyze the impact of global megatrends on the Polish labour market. These megatrends encompass: the process of globalization, the acceleration of the technical and technological advance and the changes in the content of work. The following implications of the trends have been indicated as regards the Polish labour market: a rise in the work demand generated by the free flow of capital, which has alleviated the shortage of capital savings in the country, a decrease in the demand for the so called standard work (performed on the full-time basis, characterized by constant working hours and by employment for an indefinite period of time), an increase in the number of jobs connected with nonstandard work which has replaced the standard work, an increase in the demand for knowledge, skills and occupational qualifications of labour resources. The effects exerted by global megatrends on the Polish labour market will certainly be far-reaching. The final balance of advantages and disadvantages depends on the three main factors: the power of the economy, which is manifested by its ability to compete successfully on the global markets, socioeconomic policy of the country and people - the most important subjects on the both sides of the labour market.
