competencies stand their grounds against Lithuanian workers, so when employing a foreign
citizen into their company, managers "shoot two bunnies": they get a new approach with new
ideas and have a qualified specialist in their team.
• Foreign workers value wages paid in Lithuania, so instead of choosing multiple jobs, they are
happy to establish themselves in an enterprise of one employer where they tend to work even
