In Hungary, the labor market is moving towards flexible working, according to a survey by the labor agency Randstad, writes profitline.hu.
The results also showed that unrealistic salary expectations are the main obstacle to recruitment. There is a significant gap between the wage increase expected by employees and employers.
Some 44% of respondents said their company had fully recovered from the crisis caused by the pandemic. Another 27% said they were not affected at all by the economic downturn triggered by COVID.
However, 2% had been affected negatively and still had not returned to pre-pandemic business levels, while a third was still struggling for "recovery" or had only partially "recovered."
Meanwhile, 69% of respondents said they switched to a hybrid work method to protect their employees, with 60% of those asking their employees to spend two or three days in the office a week.
