the yearly economic report of the world
30 Mar 2017
The yearly Economic Report of the World Employment Confederation has just been released!
The year-long research conducted by the World Employment Confederation in 50 countries addresses the challenges of a changing world of work and illustrates the role of the employment industry in enabling work, adaptation, security and prosperity.
50 million people globally accessed the labour market via an employment agency in 2015
Regarding penetration rate, agency work represents a limited part of the global working population averaging just 1.7%. The USA leads the field at 2.2%, followed by Japan (2%) and Europe (1.9%).
The highest-placed European country is France in 5th place with 2 million hires.
Across the markets covered in the report, current trends show a diversification of the employment industry.
Employment agencies also guided some 3 million individuals through their career management or job search, and they enabled adaptation by closing skills gaps and placing unemployed youth in work.
Following Denis Pennel, Managing Director at the World Employment Confederation, numbers show two things: “first, agencies provide both an entry point to the labour market and a stepping stone to permanent hiring. Second, the industry creates decent jobs that would otherwise not exist. In India for instance, 92% of companies would not make permanent hires if agency work was not available”.
Finally, the report points that the employment industry reduces frictional unemployment and has an impact on public budgets.
The Communication Agency, Page in extremis is proud to have participated in the creative development and the graphical production of the report. The result is a comprehensive publication made within an intimate creative dialogue framework involving the Belgian communication agency’s creative team, and the World Employment Confederation.
An online version of the publication is on the road and will be soon published.
