For example, as we discussed a few weeks ago, the Polish government plans to make two significant increases to the national minimum wage in 2023. We wanted to find out more about this and some other changes that are around the corner — so we caught up with Michal Czernek, CXC’s Business Development Director for the Central and Eastern Europe region (CEE).
