Gradual growth of the labour market in the first quarter of 2016 2016-06-30

The salaried employment has once again slightly increased during the first quarter of 2016, as shown by the statistics of the National Social Security Office. The gradual increase of the last two years is maintained.

Global view

Compared to the same period in 2015, the salaried employment has once again increased during the first quarter of 2016, as shown by the statistics of the National Social Security Office. Both the number of jobs (+ 0.8%) and the work volume (+0.9% in full-time equivalents) have increased. The global view is that of a partly improving labour market. The favourable tendency on the labour market is first of all boosted by the commercial services sector. The regression of employment in ‘Industry and Construction’ is less than in recent years. However, the growth of employment the non-commercial services has largely come to a standstill.
