ASEMPLEO

This September, we are co-organising the World Employment Conference 2021 with our Spanish national federation ASEMPLEO!

ASEMPLEO represents, defends and promotes the interests of private employment services agencies, with respect to Public Institutions and Administration, regulatory bodies, business and trade union organisations.

Temporary employment agencies are playing a significant role in Spain notably by placing in labour markets workers from under-represented groups (women, young people and people over 45 years). More than 70% of the contracts for these workers comes from the sector.
