AMSTERDAM, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, has announced that ManpowerGroup Solutions has been recognized as Leader in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix for Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) in Europe for 2012, based on its market success and RPO delivery capability.
Everest Group, advisory and research group on global services, assessed 17 European RPO service providers' delivery capabilities along four dimensions — scale, scope, technology capability and delivery footprint — with ManpowerGroup Solutions named one of only four leaders in the RPO space due to its top quartile performance. Earlier this year, ManpowerGroup Solutions was ranked as the Global RPO Leader for the second consecutive year by both Everest Group and BPO industry analyst firm NelsonHall."As European companies are challenged by the ongoing economic uncertainty, there is growing demand for RPO solutions that allow organizations to create new ways to do more with less and improve the efficiency of their recruitment processes," said Hans Leentjes, ManpowerGroup President of Northern Europe. "This recognition confirms why businesses turn to ManpowerGroup Solutions to provide the experience, the expert recruiters, and the innovative sourcing strategies and hiring practices to find the talent they need to win." ManpowerGroup Solutions' RPO ranked particularly highly in terms of scale of operations — overall company revenue, annual hires managed, number of current RPO clients in Europe and dedicated RPO recruiters, as well as its delivery footprint measure and global sourcing mix. "Clients trust ManpowerGroup as the RPO industry leader because we are uniquely positioned to design and successfully deliver tailor-made, one size fits one solutions," said Francoise Gri, ManpowerGroup President of Southern Europe. "Acquiring the most qualified people is a critical competitive advantage, and it is also increasingly challenging for companies. Our expertise in implementing innovative and differentiated sourcing and attraction strategies is recognized because it ensures results." " Europe is the second largest RPO market in the world and the uncertain economic climate in the region makes it a highly dynamic market," said Rajesh Ranjan, Vice President, Everest Group. "ManpowerGroup has clearly demonstrated its credentials as a leader in the European RPO space."
