EMA Poland is an Executive Search firm with its office based in Warsaw. Poland is the most populous state in central Europe, and became the first of the central European countries to overthrow communist rule in 1989. Poland has pursued a policy of economic liberalization since 1990 and today stands out as a success story among transition economics. In 1989 it was on the verge of economic collapse, weighed down by massive foreign debt. Today, it is one of the fastest growing economies in Europe and has enjoyed uninterrupted growth since 1992. It is the only country in the European Union to maintain positive GDP growth, and it has had some success in creating a market economy and attracting foreign investment. Poland still has a huge farming sector – agriculture accounts for about 60 per cent of the country’s total land area. The private sector (75% of GDP) is now the main driver of economic activity.
In recent years Poland has proven its position as one of the most attractive global locations for business investments. Poland’s central location on the continent, its well-educated workforce and upcoming young talent combined with its experience in providing comprehensive investment support are only a few examples of what Poland offers, and why it has become attractive for the world’s most recognized brands.
