Purpose: This publication aims to assess employees’ organization of work on the example of a fish processing company. The subject of research is an exemplary industrial enterprise operating in the fish processing sector in Poland. Design/Methodology/Approach: A survey method and participating observation was used in this publication. The study was carried out on a group of 130 employees of a company involved in the fish processing industry. The values of the analyzed indicators were calculated by using the Excel program and Statistica 13. Findings: The conducted research allowed to assess work organization within the surveyed fish processing company. The studies confirmed the H1 hypothesis: The organization of work in the surveyed enterprise is average. Work organization assessment level among the employees reached 3.64 and can be considered as an average score. The research also confirmed the H2 hypothesis: In the surveyed enterprise, there are statistically significant differences in assessing the effectiveness of work between the Polish and Ukrainian employees. Work effectiveness is evaluated better by the Ukrainian (4.29) rather than the Polish employees (3). Practical Implications: The most important practical implication of the carried out research in that it is worth hiring immigrants, particularly Ukrainian workers in Poland. The research shows that they perceive the Polish industry organization much better than the Poles. Originality/Value: The analysis showed the influence of employees’ nationality on the assessment of work organization in the surveyed company. This can be viewed as proving that employing foreigners in the industry can be beneficial.
