Regards croisés sur la fidélisation des salariés intérimaires

Abstract : The temporary help service sector has developed widely over the last thirty years, in response to firms’quantitative flexibility needs. In order to defend their position on the market, the temporary help service (THS) agencies seek to maintain a long term relationship with the temporary workers whose skills are demanded on the local labor market. A qualitative study of 45 THS professionals (both temporary workers and THS professionals) leads us to a better understanding of the relationship between these two types of actors. Loyalty to the THS agency appears to be complex and multifactor, based on the attempts to ensure a continuous job period, perception of support from the agency, quality of the relationship between people, relationships of trust and reciprocity, and normalization of THS worker status. However, this retention process raises numerous issues, both legal and symbolic, reflecting a persistent stigmatization of precarious employment.
