Business services providers slightly less optimistic

In November, the number of business services providers anticipating turnover growth in the next three months outnumbered those anticipating a decrease by 29 percent. Optimism was tempered in comparison to the two preceding months.

Optimism about future employment also declined. The number of business service providers expecting employment to grow approximately equalled those anticipating a decrease. In the two preceding months, expectations were distinctly positive.

Optimism about future turnover prevailed in nearly all branches. With a positive balance of 70, temp job agencies were by far the most optimistic. They are also very optimistic about the economic climate in the Netherlands.

Turnover in the sector business services may be affected by seasonal variation. These effects have not been taken into account.
