On a monthly basis, employment went up 0.2%.
Another data from the Warsaw-based agency showed that Poland's corporate sector wages surged by 12.4% year-on-year, the most since April of 2008, to an average of PLN 6,666 (EUR 1,435.50) in March, following an 11.7% increase in the previous month.
On a monthly basis, wages grew by 7.2% due to payments of discretionary, jubilee, holiday and quarterly bonuses, annual awards, increasing wages and salaries, including mobility package related, as well as overtime pays and retirement severance pays (which besides the base salary are also included as components of wages and salaries).
