Title

Flexible forms of employment, an opportunity or a curse for the modern economy? Case study: banks in Poland


Abstract

The presented topic is of utmost importance due to the consequences that the implementation of atypical forms of employment has for all labour market actors. Sometimes employees decide on such forms of employment due to the pressure from employers who see it as a chance to optimize the costs. The conducted study confirmed that flexible forms of employment are more common among young people, who are at the beginning of their professional career, than among workers with seniority. The flexible forms of employment are also less frequent among managerial staff. The discussion is supported by empirical research conducted on a sample of 1,920 bank employees in Poland. This study is the first one that investigates the flexible forms of employment on a big sample of Polish bank employees and show the character of Polish bankers.
