Staff House to double worker accommodation capacity
Hungaryʼs Staff House, which organizes worker accommodation for big companies and staffing agencies, plans to double the number of beds it offers from the current 4,000 by yearʼs end, CEO András Kondor said in Wednesdayʼs issue of business daily Világgazdaság.
Next year, the number of beds Staff House offers is expected to increase at a similar pace, as this is the only way to keep up with the demand created by expansion in the industrial sector, Kondor was cited as saying.
Kondor estimated that some 20,000 people live in worker accommodation in Hungary, while at least that many or more live in rented flats.
Demand for worker accommodation is greatest in the area around industrial parks in Budapest, Győr, Kecskemét, Miskolc and Hatvan. The automotive industry generates the highest demand, noted the report.
Világgazdaság noted that demand is opening up new opportunities for the utilization of disused buildings, typically office blocks or guesthouses suffering a lack of business on the outskirts of cities. Such facilities need to meet the special needs of gangs of workers often working together in several shifts, which can often entail groups of people coming and going at all hours.
