On average, 86.3% of total employer labor costs are gross wages and salaries. Among these costs, the major part (67.4% of the total cost) is paid to employees with each pay in the form of direct compensation for days worked, bonuses or allowances.

The hourly cost had increased sharply between 2016 and 2020, around 5.12% per year on average, an observation which must however be
nuanced by the impact of the 2020 pandemic and the decrease in hours actually worked during this period, further specifies the institute.

According to the latest estimates, the average hourly cost would have continued to increase by an average of 3.53% per year between 2020 and 2022 for the whole economy. Luxembourg has the highest hourly labor cost among EU Member States.
