"Effective workforce solutions are increasingly critical to business success, and hard-to-find workers are the key competitive differentiator in the Human Age. TAPFIN's growing leadership in the MSP space has sprung from our ability to tailor solutions across businesses and markets." Leveraging local market presence, scalable process and expertise, TAPFIN is backed by ManpowerGroup's unmatched global reach, boasting offices in 80 countries with nearly $8 billion in managed spend worldwide. Through a holistic perspective, the team helps organizations elevate their contingent labor as a key component of their total workforce. Delivering sophisticated program management based on industry-leading process, TAPFIN provides the visibility and predictability to achieve consistent and better results that maximize organizations' fulfillment and usage of their contingent workforce. In this year's SIA report, ManpowerGroup Solutions' TAPFIN temporary/contract MSP offering was listed as the world's largest provider at $7.6 billion. TAPFIN's vendor-neutral MSP offering was listed at $4.6 billion, and its hybrid offering also led the way among competitors at $1.8 billion. The ManpowerGroup Solutions TAPFIN MSP offering enhances client competitiveness as it manages their contingent workforce program and can encompass program management, reporting and tracking, and vendor selection and management. A vendor-neutral agreement has no preferred vendor and multiple vendors competing for job requisitions, while a hybrid model may have a master vendor involved where spend levels, skillsets, or other conditions dictate.
