The market for temporary staffing in Germany contracted by 3.1 per cent in 2023 to €32.9 billion, down from €33.9 billion in 2022. The top 25 temporary staffing companies, however, saw their revenues increase by an average of 2.2 per cent. Temporary worker numbers fell by 4.9 per cent. Weak third and fourth quarters in 2023, combined with a price effect, had a significant impact on market evolution. Providers of qualified specialist personnel, in particular healthcare professionals, were the primary drivers of growth.
