Blended Solutions Drive Business Success by Streamlining Workforce Management, Lowering Costs, and Increasing Talent Agility and Effectiveness

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today the release of a new whitepaper: "Optimizing Talent - Blended Solutions for Europe's Human Age."

In the European Union, the rise of talentism has been combined with accelerating demographic shifts, changes in workforce needs and a favorable regulatory environment. Together, these factors have led to the creation of a new approach to hiring. Rather than maintaining a segmented approach to their full-time, part-time and contract talent, forward looking EU employers have adopted an integrated approach towards hiring called blended solutions.

Blended solutions – a strategy of total talent acquisition - proactively integrate managed services programs (MSP) and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) into one holistic solution. Employers who use blended solutions can overcome the siloed approach towards human resources, and address their technological and management challenges.

"Sophisticated solutions that incorporate a blend of traditional outsourced models help employers access and keep the talent they need to succeed in the Human Age," says Jilko Andringa, Managing Director for Central Europe and ManpowerGroup Solutions RPO Europe. "Once they adopt blended solutions, employers not only experience greater workforce agility, but they also realize greater cost savings and a more optimized supply chain."

Companies looking to consider a blended solution must ensure that the provider has subject matter expertise, global capabilities, the ability to provide strategic workforce consulting and can seamlessly combine solutions into one integrated offering.

ManpowerGroup has been at the forefront of the fast-changing and accelerating world of work trends for more than six decades. Three years ago, ManpowerGroup first identified that the world entered the Human Age, a new era marked by the rise of talentism, where talent is the key driver of business success.
