Poland to see 4.2% salary increase in 2011, driven by inflation


Companies in Poland are planning to increase salaries by 4.2% in 2011, well above the European average of 3%, according to a survey by Aon Hewitt, the HR consulting group. After allowing for anticipated inflation, salary increases by the country’s businesses are expected to reach 1.7%, higher than in any other EU country except Spain (1.8%) and the same as in Germany (two non-EU members, Switzerland and Norway, are to see salary growth of around 2%).

By way of comparison, in 2010 salaries at Polish companies rose by 4%, which in real terms translated into an increase of 1.3%, Aon Hewitt calculates.

The survey shows that the vast majority of Polish firms are expecting to increase salaries this year, and that they will apply more or less equally across all employee categories. The most-often cited reason (mentioned by 53% of respondents) is inflation, followed by anticipated salary increases at competitors and performance.
