World – Largest global staffing list published

08 October 2013

Staffing Industry Analysts has released its list of the largest global staffing firms, showing little movement among the top ten and no change among the ‘Big Three’. Of the 119 firms, 46 are headquartered in Europe, 51 in North America, and 21 in the ‘Rest of the World’.  

The Big Three, Adecco, Randstad, and ManpowerGroup retained their positions at the top of the list. Together they have a 17% total market share, while the 119 largest firms (inclusive of the Big Three) have a combined market share of a little over 45%. 

The top ten firms are particularly important, especially in some individual markets; such as France and the Netherlands, which are heavily consolidated. No company outside the top ten has more than a 1% global market share.
