Germany — Temporary employment forecast to grow noticeably next year

02 November 2009

Vera Calasan, the new Managing Director of Manpower Deutschland, told German Press Agency (DPA), that "companies have realised during the crisis that flexibility is key to their success. After a downturn this year, temporary employment is going to grow noticeably next year and will very soon reach the previous level of 830,000 again."

"In my view, the labour market has reached its lowest point by now. We are investing into re-structuring our company in order to cope with the growth we are expecting for next year. Estimated projections of 2.5 million temporary employees in Germany are quite realistic."

"Temporary employment covers all levels of the labour market, including management. One of the strongest growth sectors is the health service and the professional development of people who want to work in business sectors other than the ones they have previously worked in."

"What the labour market needs [from politicians] is more flexibility in the temporary employment sector and an improved child care service in order to enable young women to better co-ordinate their working lives with their family lives."
