This year’s European Staffing 100 comprises those who have helped shape an approximately €133 billion market (temp and perm). Staffing Industry Analysts’ third annual list (the second in Staffing Industry Review) is a multicultural medley reflecting the diversity of staffing markets in Europe. The list is in alphabetical order (by surname).

It’s not easy to measure influence. Our mission is to showcase those people who have taken our industry to the next level. Some are on the list thanks to the sheer size of their operations, others due to influencing legislation. Still others are strategists, innovators, researchers, etc. These individuals and their companies have placed millions of people in jobs.

We are not ranking these individuals. It’s about honouring those that have made a difference in some way to the way we work.

Where are they from? Thirty-one are British, sixteen are French, fourteen are Dutch, six are German, five are Belgian and six are Italian. The rest hail from Belize, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the US.
