Topic: Offshore Locations - Perspectives on Global Services Market in Poland

Poland has witnessed steady interest from buyers and service providers of global services, particularly in Business Process Offshoring (BPO) and IT Services. The global services industry in Poland has distinctive strengths in finance and accounting as well as IT Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) support. Factors such as availability of multi-city options, cultural affinity, and availability of high quality talent pool with distinct strengths in language skills have attracted leading players to Poland.

Poland accounts for almost one-fourth of the global services market in CEE and is witnessing double-digit growth. In recent months, we moved Poland into the category of "mature locations" in the Everest Group's Market Vista Location Heatmap. Poland's move puts it in an elite group of five countries that are "mature locations" – the others being India, the Philippines, China, and Brazil. This brief provides a perspective on Poland's position as a leading destination for BPO and IT services in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and implications for stakeholders.
