Private employment agencies create decent jobs for all and more opportunities to participate to the jobs market. Evidence provided by the members of the World Employment Confederation shows agency work acts as a stepping stone from unemployment to work in the long term: 12 months after starting an assignment via agency work, the share of unemployed persons drops by 15% in Norway and by 23% in Mexico. Agency work is a particularly important means of labour market insertion for resettled refugees in Germany, where 20% of refugees who found a job did so via a private employment agency. Finally, private employment agencies ensure prosperity by playing an expending role for economies. In the US for instance, agency work and direct recruitment sales revenue increased 1.8% to $150 billion in 2016.
