MILWAUKEE, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup ( NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today that it has been recognized as a Leader for the third consecutive year in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix published in the April 2013 report "Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) – Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix Assessment." As the three-time Leader in the PEAK Matrix, ManpowerGroup is unequivocally the top global RPO solutions provider.
The Everest Group PEAK Matrix rated 25 of the industry's leading service providers through its comprehensive evaluation framework. Based on specific criteria including market success, scale, scope, technology capability, delivery footprint and buyer satisfaction, the report categorized the providers into Leaders, Major Contenders and Emerging Players.
"ManpowerGroup continues to lead the field with its ability to leverage its recruiting experience through its global footprint," said Rajesh Ranjan, Vice President, Business Process Outsourcing Research, Everest Group. "New this year was added insight into the client experience, an additional point of strength and differentiation for ManpowerGroup. In some regions, RPO continues to grow in maturity and adoption, and in other markets, particularly Latin America, ManpowerGroup has a dominant presence both in terms of breadth and scale of services."
ManpowerGroup achieved top quartile performance in the Everest Group assessment, receiving the top ranking among providers based on its flexible and scalable RPO delivery capability and market success. Moreover, the report shows that ManpowerGroup held the largest market share among all providers for large markets and mid-markets in 2012.
"We are pleased to again receive recognition from Everest Group for our market success and delivery capability," said Kate Donovan, ManpowerGroup Solutions, Global RPO President. "Uncertain market conditions combined with a shortage of talent have made employers' needs increasingly complex. Globally, employers need the highest quality of talent delivered with a superior candidate experience as well as process efficiency. This requires strong capability and flexibility to create sophisticated solutions. With an extensive global network and a deep understanding of local markets, ManpowerGroup Solutions delivers the best talent at a predictable cost to alleviate the pressure clients feel when it comes to talent acquisition strategies."
Donovan was recently named to the newly created role of Global RPO President for ManpowerGroup Solutions. This expanded RPO leadership role is a reflection of how the human capital solutions market has evolved, with companies taking a strategic view of their global workforce needs and associated costs. She will continue to strengthen ManpowerGroup's RPO footprint and delivery capability, and focus on the innovation required by its global client base.
"ManpowerGroup recognized the emergence of RPO in its early stages, mobilized teams worldwide to support the offering, and today we have a sophisticated global RPO practice," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup President. "ManpowerGroup's consistent exceptional performance in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix is a reflection of our strong RPO capabilities and Kate's leadership of RPO globally. RPO is one of our strategic focus areas, and we continue to invest and innovate to ensure our global RPO leadership position."
The report also offered a comparative share analysis of the RPO service providers within different geographic regions, based on the number of deals and number of hires in each region. According to the report, ManpowerGroup is among the top providers in North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and the EMEA region.
