The great pressure on prices and profitability in the market increases the pressure on companies to introduce and establish efficient processes. In addition, the industry is characterised and unsettled by increasing regulation at short intervals and the effects of the reform of the Temporary Employment Act. Lünendonk has been analysing the market for Temporary Staffing and HR Services for more than two decades.
