Switzerland – Temporary recruitment outlook is positive

15 October 2013

The temporary recruitment sector rebounded in September, according to the latest figures from Swiss Staffing, the Swiss Federation of Staffing Companies. Compared with a strong performance in September 2012, temporary recruitment grew by +1.5%. This growth offsets the -6.4% decline reported in August.

Despite this growth temporary recruitment for the year as a whole remains stagnant. Growth for the year up to September remains at -0.6% compared with the same period last year.

However, the longer-term outlook remains positive. The Swiss State Secretary for Economic Affairs (SECO) has marginally upgraded its autumn forecast. For the current year, SECO expects a moderate economic growth of +1.8%. A stronger economic recovery is expected during the course of 2014.
