ManpowerGroup Acquires Large Chinese HR Firm

Its majority stake acquisition of REACH HR, which has more than 100,000 employees and specializes in supporting manufacturers, solidifies a foothold in the economic centers of Guangzhou and Shenzhen, according to the company.

Betting on growth in inland China's manufacturing hubs, ManpowerGroup has acquired REACH HR, an HR company located in Guangdong Province. It has more than 100,000 employees and specializes in supporting manufacturing.

ManpowerGroup said this move "fortifies [its] comprehensive effort to develop China's manufacturing workforce and align workers with new opportunities, as the country modernizes this sector, by repositioning it across new inland hubs and building out a shipping infrastructure, in preparation for a growth spike."

The result is a stronger foothold for ManpowerGroup in the economic centers of Guangzhou and Shenzhen, which border Hong Kong's shipping operation.

REACH HR currently serves Guangdong's electrical appliance and logistical businesses. "By expanding ManpowerGroup's presence across China's new and traditional manufacturing hubs, we will be able to provide critical development and recruitment solutions that address a range of issues affecting China's overall growth prospects in the manufacturing sector," said Darryl Green, ManpowerGroup president of Asia Pacific and Middle East. "As China faces some of the most significant change and challenges seen in decades, ManpowerGroup's own 17-year legacy in the country is quickly evolving into a nationwide provider of a full suite of innovative workforce solutions, from executive search and recruitment process outsourcing to large volume recruitment and temporary staffing."

ManpowerGroup was the first foreign multinational corporation to obtain a temporary staffing business license in China, in 2007. It says China's estimated in total industrial output for 2011 is $1.8 trillion and ManpowerGroup is the country's largest workforce solutions provider, with a presence in 35 major cities and services provided in more than 100 cities through a network of alliances and partners.
