France — Temporary employment growth between 2% to 3% in February 2010

04 March 2010

According to the latest data from the Temporary Employers Association (PRISME), temporary employment in France has grown for the first time since March 2008 in February 2010, albeit at the low rate of between 2% to 3%.
The industry has been in free fall since March 2008 with negative growth of -12% in the year 2008 and -28.7% in the year 2009.

PRISME President Francois Roux, told Agence France Presse "we cannot talk about an upturn yet but we can see that decline has stopped. For the first time in 20 months we have a positive growth rate."

Adecco France President, Francois Davy, told French daily La Tribune "this summer will be the test period for temporary employment because that is when the construction industry and public works usually flourish. The market is still 25% to 30% lower than it was in 2007, which was a record year for temporary employment."
"During the course of 2009, eight years' worth of uninterrupted growth have been wiped out and we are back at 2001 levels. We will have to see considerable improvement in the market in order to get back to the levels we were used to."
