LPP increases wages and promotes an increase in employment

The LPP management board has awarded a 10% pay rise to all employees at the company’s headquarters from January 2022. The Polish clothing manufacturer also announced a new remuneration policy for its sales network and payment of 6-month bonuses before the end of this year.

The company’s management also said that those who will be affected by the tax changes announced at the beginning of the year can count on compensation.

As a company responsible for its employees, we want to give them a sense of security, regardless of what is happening outside our organization,” said Marek Piechocki, President of the Management Board of LPP.
