Manpower and ABC consultants tie up
Manpower has tied up with India headhunting firm ABC Consultants to make a joint venture .
What is not clear to me is how will this JV be different from what they are offering at present as separate entities. ABC has some strong functional practices while Manpower has focussed more in the ITeS recruitment space in India. Anybody has any guess what this JV will focus on? Maybe leadership recruitment for the ITeS industry. I know that's a huge pain area that traditional executive recruiters cannot easily crack.
Temp staffing , for which Manpower is known worldwide, is still led by the huge TeamLease which is getting more and more people on its roll and could theoretically become the biggest employer in India. And its about time we overhauled our labour laws to facilitate more flexible staffing options. The Contract Labour Act needs to be amended to distinguish at least between different skill level jobs.
