In 2016, the employment industry generated €491 billion in revenue worldwide, mostly driven by agency work accounting for € 350 billion.
Agency work is growing in many markets in Europe with the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy and Spain all experiencing significant growth compared to the previous year and compensating for a slowdown in the UK.
Japan continues to experience accelerating growth in agency work (8% compared to 7% the year before) while growth in the US, the largest agency work market, remains stable.
The direct recruitment market rose slightly to € 37.8 billion, confirming its trend towards a more profitable and faster-growing HR service.
Published annually, the World Employment Confederation (WEC) Economic Report aims at giving a comprehensive picture of the employment industry and labour market trends in general.
It shows how the members of the World Employment Confederation act as labour market enablers, playing a key role in delivering work, adaptation, security and prosperity to societies.
The 2018 online edition of the World Employment Confederation’s Economic Report compiles robust facts and figures about the employment industry.
