Private-sector employers added 215,000 jobs in December, well above economists' expectations, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Thursday.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP National Employment Report would show a gain of 133,000 jobs.

November's private payrolls were revised upward to show a gain of 148,000 from the previously reported 118,000.

The report is jointly developed with Moody's Analytics.
