CCIR launched the third edition of the study on business environment perceptions on the economy
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania (CCIR) launched in May the study on Perceptions of the business environment on the economy. The study, at its third edition, was commissioned by CCIR and conducted by Kantar TNS on a sample of 501 companies across the country. According to the study, the increasingly alarming thing that is now reflected in figures is the availability of qualified personnel as the main problem of companies. 35% of companies have hit the problem of the employees’ leaving abroad and 77% say that the qualified staff was the main category affected, the values being similar to those registered in 2016. The lack of qualified staff (9% 2016 and 18% versus 2015) is a pressing problem of the Romanian business environment.
