According to the latest temporary employment index (Zeitarbeitsindex) published by the Association of Temporary Employers (BZA), temporary employment rose by +5% in February 2010 compared to the previous month. This shows that the index for the previous month (-5.4%) represents a seasonal low rather than a trend indicator.
Whilst temporary employment in companies with between 51 and 500 temporary employees only grew by +1.5% in February 2010, both smaller and larger firms registered a growth of 5.2% in temporary employment.
Compared to February 2009 temporary employment was up by a massive +23.5%. However, growth developments varied hugely according to company size:
- In companies with up to 50 temporary employees, temporary employment was up by +13.2% year-on-year.
- In companies with up to 500 temporary employees, temporary employment was down by -1.6% year-on-year.
- In companies with over 500 temporary employees, temporary employment was up by 25% year-on-year.
