The Private Employment Agencies’ Association HPL is the employer and industry association for companies providing private employment services. Our key function is to improve the business prerequisites for our sector and our member companies. We are responsible for drafting the code of conduct and general terms and conditions for the sector, as well as negotiating collective agreements. 

Expert in the private employment sector

HPL issues sector-specific statements and cooperates with various authorities and other stakeholders. We provide our member companies with counselling and training related to employment relationships and temporary agency work. In addition, we compile sector-specific statistics.
