Temporary activity rose +1.17% in Belgium in May compared with the previous month, according to the latest data published by Federgon, the Federation of HR services. However, these increases are attributed to increases in the number of hours worked by temporary employees.
Despite the increase in hours, temporary employment is still struggling to recover. Compared with the same period last year, temporary employment has actually fallen by -6.02%. Nevertheless, this is still an improvement over the previous month, where the decline was -8.17% showing that the difficult market is gradually easing.
The Federgon index reached 203.6 points in May 2013 against 201.3 points in April. This index reflects the level of activity during the month under review compared to January 1995 (base 100), seasonally adjusted.
