Remuneration and Productivity in Poland - trends

Productivity in Poland's economy is improving - but not fast enough. Neighbouring economies are showing more rapid growth in productivity.

Yet Poland's relative competitiveness has not suffered, as wage growth has been slower than in any other CEE economy. But given the general dissatisfaction with the level of wages in Poland, the low-wage, low-productivity model looks less and less sustainable.

As unemployment falls (especially in Poland's largest agglomerations), employees are becoming more choosy; staff churn in some sectors such as shared services/BPO is becoming a serious issue. Meanwhile people from poorer regions of Poland are continuing to migrate to the UK and Germany, rather than seek work in richer parts of Poland.

This meeting of the HR policy group, with Antal and the IMF, will look at current trends on the Polish labour market and the links between pay and productivity.
