ManpowerGroup Solutions TAPFIN Named Largest Vendor-Neutral and Hybrid Managed Service Provider

ManpowerGroup Solutions TAPFIN Named Largest Vendor-Neutral and Hybrid Managed Service Provider

Available Scale Is Critical to Becoming World's Leading MSP

ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row ManpowerGroup Solutions' TAPFIN was named the largest global vendor-neutral managed service provider by the leading industry advisory firm, Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). TAPFIN also moved up from second to first place among hybrid managed service providers. These announcements were published in SIA's Vendor Management System (VMS) and Managed Service Provider (MSP) Supplier Competitive Landscape Report, released today, and an important resource for contingent workforce program owners, with the most comprehensive insight into VMS and MSP suppliers.

"To be able to leverage scale while providing the most effective workforce solutions is critical in the Human Age, an era in which hard-to-find workers is the key competitive differentiator between businesses and markets," said Kip Wright, TAPFIN Vice President and General Manager. "TAPFIN has been known as the MSP leader in overall processes and technology and backed with the ManpowerGroup Solutions footprint, we now claim the largest amount of managed workforce supply in the world."

ManpowerGroup acquired TAPFIN in 2010, forming the world-leading provider of innovative contingent workforce management solutions. Leveraging local market presence, scalable process and expertise, TAPFIN is backed by ManpowerGroup's unmatched global reach, boasting offices in more than 80 countries with nearly $5 billion in managed spend worldwide.  Through a holistic perspective, the team helps organizations elevate their contingent labor as a key component of their total workforce. Delivering sophisticated program management based on industry-leading process, TAPFIN provides the visibility and predictability to achieve consistent and better results that maximize organizations' fulfillment and usage of their contingent workforce.

In this year's SIA report, ManpowerGroup's vendor-neutral MSP offering was listed as the largest in the industry, at $2.6 billion. Our hybrid offering also led the way among competitors at $1.5 billion. TAPFIN also was ranked:

The largest VMS provider in the United States and Canada

The VMS provider with the most clients in Asia/Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Eastern and Central Europe

The second largest VMS provider in Eastern and Central Europe

The ManpowerGroup Solutions TAPFIN MSP offering enhances client competitiveness as it manages their contingent workforce program and can encompass program management, reporting and tracking, and vendor selection and management. A vendor-neutral agreement has no preferred vendor and multiple vendors competing for job requisitions, while a hybrid model may have a master vendor involved where spend levels, skill sets or other conditions dictate.

"When we realigned our family of branded offerings earlier this year, it was clear that we needed to distinguish ManpowerGroup Solutions' strengths in designing and delivering outcome-based talent-driven solutions that help our clients achieve better business results," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup President of the Americas and executive leader of ManpowerGroup Solutions. "Clearly TAPFIN is the most strategically positioned MSP in the industry, equipped to manage the increasingly complex talent needs of today's employers."

In addition to TAPFIN MSP, ManpowerGroup Solutions' other offerings include Strategic Workforce Consulting, Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Borderless Talent Solutions and Talent-Based Outsourcing.  

Respondents to SIA's annual survey and report were validated, analyzed, and ranked to produce the most comprehensive contingent workforce report in the market. The complete report is available through SIA (
