Staff recruitment in the automotive industry

Exclusively for AGVS members: Professional support with staff recruitment – on the best possible terms

The Swiss Auto Trade Association (AGVS) was founded in 1927 and is today the industry sector and professional association of Swiss garages. 4000 SME’s and larger companies, brand representations and independent companies belong to the association. Around 39 000 employees which are part of the AGVS companies sell, service and repair most of the Swiss fleet, which counts 5.9 million vehicles. As an umbrella organization, the AGVS supports its members in their hard work.

For many garage owners, searching for and recruiting staff is extremely costly and time-consuming. And the current shortage of skilled staff is making recruitment even harder. 

This is why Manpower and the AGVS have devised a customised range of services on the best possible terms exclusively for AGVS members, to help them recruit staff. Thanks to this programme of services, AGVS members can request direct support from Manpower when they recruit. The services can be designed as a whole package or individually (partial packages).

The following services are available to AGVS members:
