Top 30 Staffing Firms in Switzerland 2011

Considering that Switzerland is a relatively small country, it has a significantly large staffing market. Adecco may dominate its domestic market but foreign firms are also very well represented, especially those providing an offering in professional staffing, permanent recruitment and executive search. The Swiss financial sector is one of the main drivers and we estimate that there were approximately 884 staffing firms operating in Switzerland in 2011.

The consolidation pattern of the Swiss market is distinctively different from the surrounding markets as it falls between the more fragmented German market and the more consolidated Italian one. There is a relatively high density of international firms in the Swiss Top 30, as 14 of these are headquarted outside Switzerland.
