Staffpool mechanism

Manpower Staffpool® was developed to respond to localized needs for teams of workers as quickly as possible. The system’s effectiveness lies in the ability to dip into shared talent pools to meet the labour market’s requirements. All businesses in the same sector that require the same skills can collaborate and hire candidates from a shared talent pool. From the other side, the talented workers included in these pools are more flexible and can easily move from one business to another.

Our staff pools provide greater productivity, increased safety and excellent integration in your team. This is the preferred solution of many companies, as it affords them greater reliability, clear savings when it comes to training and also time savings when staff come on board ready for the job.

Several possibilities

Standard training sessions sometimes aren’t enough to meet a company’s special needs. So, while our training tools and workshops are field tested, we stand ready to adapt or develop special training so that it meets your expectations.

Some business clients have come to us to recruit and hire entire permanent teams of workers in a given field. We can do that, too, because our Staffpool team is always recruiting, hand-picking and training associates in the fields where our pools are needed.

The benefits for you

Being among the businesses that partner with Manpower Staffpool® lets you cover your needs for seasonal or short-term staff and gives you priority access to experienced temporary workers whose knowledge and skills in the field have already been tested and brought up to speed based on the needs of the positions.

Staffpool® associates undergo rigorous selection and training. They are available to Staffpool partners for repeated temporary assignments. This allows temporary staff to gain practical experience, and companies looking for staff with similar profiles have priority access to the best candidates.

What you need to know: a pool of workers is specialized in a specific sector and assigned to a region, a limited geographic zone. It is possible to hire a pool of workers permanently in your company. This means you can have a team with the skills you need immediately.
