Small increase in number of hours worked in temp jobs
02
Jun '08
The number of hours worked in temp jobs increased only marginally. Adjusted for seasonal effects, the index figure for the number of hours worked in stage A temp jobs in the first quarter of 2008 exceeded 123 (2000=100). In the fourth quarter of 2007, the index figure was just under 123.

The number of hours worked in stage A temp jobs rose by less than 4 percent in the first quarter compared with the same period one year previously.

The number has risen continuously for almost 4 years now, but the growth rate slowed down considerably. Growth rates for 2005 and 2006 were 18 and 17 percent respectively. The growth rate for 2007 was a more modest 10 percent.

Stage A includes persons working for temp agencies on a contract basis, without regular terms of employment. In stage A, it is easier for both parties - employer and employee - to terminate the work contract than in the subsequent stages B and C.
