The Dutch federation of staffing firms (ABU) has launched a new service to provide more data and figures about the local and international staffing markets, the organisation announced on Tuesday.
ABU has now launched an interactive version of its Flex & Figures magazine, offering an overview of labour market trends. This breaks down developments in the staffing industry with data going back to 2011. It also offers a wider perspective of economic developments, and job market trends such as unemployment and vacancy figures.
On top of this, the online magazine gathers data from other European countries, including large staffing markets such as Belgium, France and the UK. This data has been collected from the national staffing federations in these countries, such as the Recruitment and Employment Confederation in the UK and Prisme in France.
The magazine provides an introduction to the Dutch staffing market, looking at sector-wide developments. It also incorporates research from the recently launched Flex Barometer, which provides key features about flex workers, including temporary and fixed-term workers as well as freelancers.
The Dutch staffing market has been hit by economic woes, with turnover in the industry falling for months. With economic growth expected to remain weak this year, Staffing Industry Analysts expects the Dutch staffing market to see a continuous decline in 2013.
