The survey "Employer Challenges 2020" was carried out by Contract Administration and TGC Corporate Lawyers at the turn of 2019 and 2020. According to nearly 80% of the respondents, rising labour costs are one of the most problematic areas this year, in 2019 this was the opinion of 54% of respondents. A similar trend can be observed in the case of recruitment and retention of team members. A growing problem is low employee engagement, especially among the youngest age group.

Employers also see frequent changes in the law during the year as a problem, both in the area of the Labour Code and taxes.
