Manpower is a staffing agency. Often referred to as a “temp service,” the company’s primary business is providing a bridge between qualified workers and the businesses that require its services. The agency creates a co-employment relationship that affords workers the flexibility to explore different environments and schedules while enjoying predictable pay and benefit plans.
The agency cultivates two types of clients: employers in need of qualified employees and workers ready to fill those needs. Manpower services businesses by ensuring that workers have the required skills and training, assuming the responsibility for filing federal and state paperwork and managing employee payroll and benefits. The American Staffing Association reports that 40 percent of staffing employees work in higher-skilled occupations, including industry, health care, technical, scientific and administration.
