Poland's corporate employment rebounded by 0.9% from a year earlier, following a 1.3% decline in the previous month, figures from the Central Statistical Office (GUS) showed on Thursday.
This reading interrupted a 12-month series of consecutive contractions in employment levels, as the economy seems to slowly start recovering from the pandemic crisis.
On a monthly basis employment edged down by 0.2%, marginally faster than the 0.1% decrease in March. In a separate report, the Warsaw-based statistics agency said Poland's corporate sector wages surged by 9.9% year-on-year in April and amounted to PLN 5805.72 (EUR 1,292.30). On a monthly basis, salaries dropped 2.1%, after having increased by 6.5% in the month prior.
