A temporary job can be a good path to permanent employment at a company where you are already thriving, shows a new analysis from Kraka.

At a time where qualified labour is increasingly in demand, more and more temporary workers are offered the chance to trade in their temporary position for a permanent job. This trend is clear to Jesper Busk, CEO at staffing agency JKS, which has approximately 3,200 temps working for their corporate clients each day. On an annual basis, more than 12,000 temporary workers pass through the system at JKS.
Very often, JKS’s temps decide to say yes to the offer of a permanent position. On an annual basis, around 4,000 of the company’s temporary workers find permanent work.
A new study conducted by think tank Kraka on behalf of the Confederation of Danish Industry shows that JKS is far from alone in its experiences.
Kraka’s analyses further show that it is significantly easier for those in temporary jobs to find work than those who are unemployed.
“The temporary sector is an important bridge-builder. Companies get employees that are tried and tested, while temps get jobs at companies where they are already doing well. This is to everyone’s benefit,” says Jakob Scharff.
According to Jakob Scharff, the temporary sector is also an important partner for companies at a time where there is increasing competition for labour.
“The Danish economy is booming at the moment, and the employment rate is at a record high. This can be challenging for companies, who may have a hard time finding qualified labour. Here, temporary staff maybe be the solution that enables companies to get by,” he says.
“If Danish companies are to do well internationally, they must be sharp on their pricing and flexible and competitive on deliveries. If they receive an exceptional order, they must be able to deliver. This is where we can help them across the finish line,” says Jesper Busk.
