ZURICH–Swiss staffing giant Adecco Group SA (ADEN.EB) said Wednesday that second-quarter net profit rose 7% on a 4% rise in organic revenue helped by growth in parts of Europe including Italy.
Zurich-based Adecco said that net profit rose to 190 million euros ($211.9 million) in the three months to end-June from the same period a year earlier. Revenue rose to EUR5.67 billion.
Economists typically view staffing companies as a bellwether for the global economy and labor markets.
