Optimism about rising employment grew for the ninth month in a row, according to a global report by ManpowerGroup.
Employment growth is expected in six out of 10 sectors of the economy and across all regions of Poland, the report noted.
The forecast for seasonally adjusted net employment was four percent. Of 750 employers asked, 13 percent said they expected increases in overall employment in Poland, four percent planned to reduce full-time positions and 78 percent did not plan any changes in the upcoming quarter.
The Transport/Logistics/Communications sector noted the strongest employment expectations. Retail and wholesale trade also noted strong figures.
Companies employing over 250 people noted the highest employment growth expectations.
Construction and Industrial Production sectors also noted high expectations for the third quarter, up eight percent a piece.
Three sectors noted a net fall in employment expectations. Employers in the Energy/Gas/Water sector expected a drop of six percent, with Mining on minus six percent and Industrial Extraction on minus four percent.
The ManpowerGroup’s research asked almost 59,000 employers in 42 countries, in 40 of which employment increases were expected.
Poland is about midway in the global ranking, behind Taiwan on plus 42 percent, but above Italy (minus four percent) and Brazil (minus three percent). (jh)
