UK staffing firm Hays bets on Germany despite economic slowdown. By Noor Zainab Hussain and Sangameswaran S. Jan 15 (Reuters) - Britain's staffing company Hays Plc (LSE: HAS.L - news) said it had not seen any weakness in Germany's job market despite Europe's largest economy growing at the weakest rate in five years. Germany, the company's largest market, is struggling with a cooling global economy, global trade disputes and the risk of Britain leaving the European Union without a deal in March.
