Manpower is more than a temp service now
The Wisconsin Job Service, as of July 1st, is no longer working directly with clients seeking jobs or training. Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board Executive Director, Bob Borremanns says they sent out requests for proposals to replace the case management duties dropped by the Job Service and chose Manpower to fill the gap.
He says Manpower developed a new program to handle the work, which is different than the temporary help service they're known for. Borremanns says Manpower and great outreach capabilities and contacts with business and industry in the area, which could be an advantage over the Job Service.
Manpower is now staffing an office at the Rock County Job Center and offering the new services out of their Green County office as well.
