Information agency Credinform prepared a ranking of profitability of services of the largest Russian recruitment agencies. Companies with the highest volume of revenue (TOP-10) were selected for this ranking according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available periods (2016 and 2015). The enterprises were ranked by decrease in profitability of services (Table 1). The analysis was based on data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.

Profitability of services or goods (%) is sales profit to expenses from ordinary activities. Profitability in general indicates production efficiency. The analyses of profitability of services allows to conclude about expediency of one or another kind of services. There is no standard value for profitability indicators, because they change in accordance with the industry the company operates in.

Taking into account the actual situation both in economy in general and in the sector, the experts of the Information agency Credinform have developed and implemented in the Information and Analytical system Globas the calculation of practical values of financial ratios, which can be recognized as normal for a particular industry. The practical value for companies engaged in recruitment in 2016 is from 2,29%.

For the most complete and objective view of the financial condition of the enterprise it is necessary to pay attention to the complex indicators and financial ratios of the company.
