On 19 September the share price of Swiss recruitment specialist Adecco falls to a two-year low. It follows an unexpectedly weak trading statement by the company, signaling the risks of significant economic slowdown in Europe. Adecco shares fell over 6% to SFr54.08 after the group reported revenues grew by just 2% in July and August. A year earlier its share price was 27% higher. The slowdown in European growth compared with the 2nd quarter was consistent with softer market and economic data. Sector worries also hit Dutch rival staffing services provider Randstad. Eurozone economic growth is affected by signs that manufacturers are suffering from a USA-China trade war. The European Central Bank has downgraded its projections for economic growth. Adecco is pursuing a two-pronged strategy to boost profit margins and revenue growth, increasing efficiency of its core business and investing in new markets.
