Ifo Personnel Manager Survey
The Ifo Institute conducts a quarterly survey for Randstad Deutschland GmbH & Co KG of personnel managers from different economic sectors as to the importance of flexibility in personnel management. The survey examines the question of what role corresponding flexibility measures play not only in the business cycle but also in the long term. Additionally, a special question is asked every quarter on a current personnel-policy topic. The Randstad-ifo-flexindex is published by the Randstad Deutschland GmbH & Co KG.
