11 – Personnel expenses and employees

Personnel expenses

Personnel expenses increased by 4.2%, from €8,228 million in 2010 to €8,576 million in 2011. This resulted in particular from the acquisition of Cognis. The increase was partially offset by lower additions to provisions for the stock price-based compensation program (long-term incentive program) due to decreased fair values as well as to the lower number of outstanding options.
