Netherlands – ING predicts staffing industry growth

14 August 2014

According to a quarterly report by ING, the Dutch multinational banking and financial services corporation, Dutch staffing industry revenue is expected to grow by +4% in 2014 and +6% in 2015, after two years of contraction. The figure for 2014 is an increase on an initially predicted figure of +2% as reported in December.

This growth is expected to be fuelled by an improving economic climate and a higher demand for temporary agency workers as Dutch companies slowly begin to increase the size of their workforce.

While growth in the industry has been focused on technical sectors, it is predicted that other sectors including administrative and industrial will soon experience a similar increase. 

The growth predictions are in line with statistics from the Dutch Federation of Employment Agencies (ABU). Latest figures revealed that the number of hours worked by temporary agency workers increased by +8% during the sixth period (26 May – 22 June), compared with the same period last year. Sales during the period also rose by +8%, year-on-year.

Staffing Industry Analysts will soon be releasing its Dutch Market Share report showing the largest 50 staffing companies in the Netherlands by revenue.
