STUDY OF IMPACT OF THE SEASONALITY OF FORESTRY WORK ON THE DEMAND FOR EMPLOYEES OF FORESTRY SERVICE COMPANIES (FSC)
Keywords: seasonality of work, labour-intensity in forestry, forestry service companies, mechanization of technological processes in forestry
One of the characteristic features of forestry work is its seasonality. Most of forestry work comprises simple activities not requiring any special preparation from the workers who do it. However, the current state of forest technology makes it possible to perform many operations, using machines and technical equipment. In Poland, the type of work that is used most often is manual work. It is still relatively cheap and available. Most of the companies providing services for forest management departments just use this simplest form of performing tasks and hire so-called seasonal employees to perform them. Thanks to this solution, the costs of keeping employees in the event there is a seasonal fall in demand for their services, is eliminated. The principal purpose of the research undertaken is to propose technological and organizational solutions that would diminish the impact of natural seasonality of forestry work on the level and structure of employment in the forestry service companies. The initial analyses show that by increasing the degree of work mechanization the demand for employees performing tasks in a forest management department may be reduced even by several tens of persons per month.
