Strong growth despite a shrinking market

House of HR, the European group of HR service providers, ranks as the fourth largest HR player in the Netherlands. Staffing Industry Analysts announced this last Friday 11 December. With a turnover of 576 million € in 2019, Continu, Covebo and Redmore, the Dutch companies that belong to the House of HR Group, show a remarkable growth of no less than 23%, while the general Dutch HR sector shrunk with 4 %.

Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA for short) compiles a list of the largest staffing firms in the world every year, but also compiles those lists by country. While House of HR ranks 24th globally, with a consolidated turnover of just over 1.8 billion €, the group is climbing from seventh to fourth place nationally. The Group, which in the Netherlands consists of the companies Continu, Covebo and Redmore, achieved a turnover of 576 million €. That is no less than 23% more than in 2018.

The result is all the more remarkable because the general turnover of the HR service providers in the Netherlands fell by 4% in 2019, with a total turnover of 20.6 billion €. The top 3, which consists of Randstad, RGF staffing and Timing Holding, represent 23% of the total turnover in the Netherlands, which indicates a strong consolidation movement.

CEO of House of HR Rika Coppens sees this high ranking above all as proof of the continuous pursuit of high-quality service. "Everyone in House of HR - our Happy Rebels - has worked hard to grow sustainably with a profit profile unparalleled in the market. We maintain our continuous focus on providing optimal service to both candidates and the companies that call on us. "
