The personal emancipation and economic success of labour migration is determined by the extent to which migration does actually leads to formal labour. Annually the employment industry provides 50 million people with a formal job worldwide. In doing so they provide a stepping stone on the labour market as 33% of all agency workers who were unemployed before only 21% of them was back to unemployment afterwards. Off those who were employed before starting agency work, 71% remain employed.

- On average the agency sector represents 1,7% of the working population ranging from 3,3% in the UK to 0,1% in Greece (EU = 1,9%/ US = 2,2%).

- Globally there are 169.000 employment and recruitment agencies creating a global turnover of 417 billion. They employs 1,5 million internal staff to support and guide agency workers on the labour market and provide HR services.

- The employment agencies offer all legal forms of employment contracts from open-ended to transition between jobs and sectors. On average 53% of all assignments are longer than three months. Through this they enable work and adaptation.

- Agency workers are a diverse group. 27% is highly skilled, 48% has medium skills and 25% is low skilled.
