Corporate employment in Poland rose 2.2% year-on-year to 6.505 million people in December, edging lower from a 2.3% increase in the previous month, the Central Statistical Office (GUS) said in a statement.

On a monthly basis, employment remained unchanged at 0.1% growth, equivalent to an increase of approximately 6.600 full-time workers.

A separate report from the Warsaw-based statistics agency shows that corporate sector wages in Poland increased by 10.3% year-on-year to PLN 7,329.96 (EUR 1,626.46) in December, easing from a 13.9% growth in the prior month.

On a monthly basis, corporate wages grew by 6.9%, prompted by payments of among others quarterly, Christmas bonuses, Miner's Day awards, annual awards, and retirement severance pays. The highest increase in wages and salaries in comparison to the previous month was noted in agriculture, forestry, and fishing (74.3% to PLN 15,218.13, or EUR 3,376.78), mining and quarrying (32.6% to PLN 18,800.93, or EUR 4,171.78), and arts, entertainment and recreation (26.5% to PLN 7,440.24).
