Labor market analysis
Polish companies created 426,000 jobs in H1 while job vacancies soared by more than a third year on year to 165,000 at end-June including over 38,000 in manufacturing, 31,000 in construction and 28,000 in commerce, stats office GUS data show.
Workforce shortages will become increasingly acute in the longer run, forcing employers to reach for the long-term jobless and students, according to analysts.
At the same time, the number of Poles receiving a pension and still holding a job has come down from 690,000 end-2017 to 686,000 end-June, undercutting hopes that a reduction of the retirement age wouldn't lead to a reduction in employment among seniors.
The portion of working seniors on regular labor contracts has increased, however.
