Personnel services in times of crisis
The consequences of the reform of the Temporary Employment Act and the coronavirus pandemic have had a significant impact on the temporary employment sector. According to the Federal Employment Agency, the number of temporary workers fell by around 216,000, from an average of around one million in 2018, to 784,000 on a rolling annual average in the year up to June 2021. Even though the business situation of personnel service providers continued to deteriorate at the end of 2021, expectations for 2022 were still very optimistic. Then the war began.
