Temporary work is an important form of employment

According to MKB-Nederland and VNO-NCW, Dutch employers’ associations, data from the Central Statistical Office (CBS) show that temporary employment is an important part of the labour market in our reviving economy. They argue that the labour market would develop much weaker under the permanent-contract regime.

Labour market in flux

Compared to previous years, the downward trend of those employed under permanent contracts has slowed down significantly. At the same time, temporary employment is now stronger than in the past. In addition – as evidenced by CBS data – fixed-term contracts were growing stronger than permanent contracts were falling. According to MKB-Nederland and VNO-NCW, this can be seen as a sign of an upward acceleration of the labour market.

More jobs

Employers’ associations argue that no wonder that many companies offer new jobs mainly based on temporary contracts. This is because many sectors still lack stability. CBS pointed out to a significant contribution of temporary employment to the growing number of jobs.

According to MKB-Nederland and VNO-NCW, these data reflect the fact that flexible employment is important for economic growth, because it helps one to start work quicker. Employers’ associations argue that the labour market would develop much weaker under a permanent-contract regime.
