Hiring capacity for Roma workers in a medium-sized Hungarian town

Most employers have and have had experiences with Roma employees. We visited several companies where Roma employees have advanced to middle management positions. Opinions concerning Roma employees varied greatly: If the worker is able to successfully adapt to and integrate into the company’s organisation, their Roma identity is not an issue, the employer takes this as granted and the worker’s ethnicity becomes secondary behind their skills facilitating successful adaptation. If the Roma worker leaves the workplace after just a short time, their ‘different socio-cultural background’ arises as a primary cause in almost every case (“unfortunately they are not used to continuous work or discipline”).
