Denmark – Medical and construction industries are biggest staffing buyers

07 October 2013

Workers in the medical industry represented that largest proportion of temporary workers in terms of revenue during 2012, according to the latest figures from Danmarks Statistik, the statistical body from Denmark.

Nearly a quarter (24%) of all temporary workers, including temporary agency workers, in 2012 were employed in the medical sector. The second largest sector by revenue was manufacturing and construction with 23%, followed by transportation, warehousing, and logistics with 14%.

The biggest year-on-year increases in revenue were reported in the manufacturing and construction industry and the transport, warehousing, and logistics industry, which both grew by +4%.

Of the 16 different temporary worker designations, six reported year-on-year growth, four reported no change, and six reported a year-on-year decline in revenue. The biggest drop was reported in the provision of ‘other’ human resources, which fell by -7% to 1% of total temporary recruitment revenue in 2012.  

The number of hours sold grew most significantly in the manufacturing and construction industry, rising to 34% of all temporary hours bought during 2012, up from 28% last year. The medical sector accounted for 21% of all hours bought, down from 25% last year. The transportation, warehousing, and logistics industry accounted for 18%, up from 17% a year ago.    

The biggest buyer of temporary recruitment services is the private sector with 68%, followed by the public sector with 27%, and organisations and individuals with 5%.
