Vladyslava Vladyslavivna Yaroshenko, Chrystyna Stanislavivna Peredalo


Introduction. The human resources management system has long laid down the basic principles, methods and approaches to managing the adaptation of workers in the workplaces. However, experience shows that they are not always effective and relevant today. First, this is due to strong migration processes in Ukraine and in the countries of the European Union (EU). Many people are forced to voluntarily or forcibly change their place of residence and, accordingly, their place of work. Their movement often causes not only the deterioration of working conditions, the manipulation of social funds and wages etc., but also the increase of the level of conflict situations in new territories, personal stresses, and manifestations of intolerance. It often leads to violations of discipline in the workplace, the increase of the number of law offenses, strikes, mass discontent etc. This situation requires an urgent solution, which has been repeatedly emphasized by European programs and projects, in particular, by the Horizon 2020 Framework Program for Research and Innovation.

Subject. The subject of the article is the social adaptation of migrant workers.

Purpose. The article aims to study the problems of social adaptation of migrant workers, to substantiate the reasons for the urgency of solving these problems and to develop recommendations for improving the processes of social adaptation of migrant workers at domestic enterprises.

Method (methodology). In this research, we have used the following methods: method of comparison, method of analysis, method of generalization, method of expert evaluations, method of questionnaires, method of grouping, method of key queries etc.

Results. This article recommends a number of measures in order to improve adaptation systems as well as indicators for assessing the level of adaptation of migrant workers at domestic enterprises. Among them, we can distinguish the general time of adaptation, the amount of money spent on the adaptation of migrant workers, the level of satisfaction of the migrant worker during a certain period of time, the assessment professional adaptation and the number of activities required to adapt the migrant worker.

Field of application. The scope of application is domestic enterprises and public organizations.
