Non-EU migrant labour key to Hungary growth, says employment agency

The employment of migrant workers from outside the European Union is key to Hungary's economic growth, Hungarian temporary employment agency Work Force said on Monday.

Hungary’s growing manual labour shortage woes are forcing businesses to look for new ways to tackle the problem, Work Force said in a statement, noting that it had recently helped with the employment of a group of 40 Filipino migrant workers in Veszprem, in western Hungary.

The agency said it expected over 1,000 more foreign workers to enter the Hungarian labour market in the near future.

Demand for migrant workers is highest in the manufacturing sector but they are also needed at hotels, hospitality venues and service companies, Work Force said.

Work Force has eight offices across Hungary and provides services on a continuous basis to 300 clients.
