The survey was conducted by EWL, an HR consultancy, and the Centre for Eastern Europe Studies at the University of Warsaw (SEW UW) among Ukrainian refugees working in Poland, state news agency PAP reported.
69 percent refugee employees speak Polish at work
Sixty-nine percent of respondents said they spoke Polish at their workplaces. Meanwhile, 54 percent of those asked said they were taking Polish classes, the authors said.
A further 28 percent said they were planning to start Polish lessons, according to the survey.
EWL’s CEO Andrzej Korkus commented that “These are ambitious people who want to take matters into their own hands, it’s just that they need tools for this.”
The poll was conducted on a sample of 400 people who fled Russia’s February invasion of Ukraine and found jobs in Poland.
A similar sample of Ukrainian refugee employees was interviewed in Germany for comparison purposes, the PAP news agency reported.
