What is the “new normal?”
“The world is on the cusp of entering a new reality in which human potential itself will become the major agent of economic growth. Unleashing this spirit and potential will become the ultimate quest that we must seek to conquer, as the world enters the Human Age.” Jeffrey A. Joerres, Chairman, CEO and President, Manpower Inc.
Today in our around the World with Manpower Journey we come to Italy. You may not know this but Manpower offers a tremendous amount of training opportunities to its customers and candidates, no matter what part of the world you are located in. For our candidates it is always free! For our customers though we do charge =( – Manpower Italy does a fantastic job of training local workers throughout the Country and upskilling them as well as reskilling them. Below is a picture from their training website if you speak Italian or want to go to Italy for some skills training, you can click on the picture to visit.
As is an on-going theme with this Manpower Around the World theme, I am Italian – but no I do not speak Italian.
Manpower Italy also has an incredible partnership with CNBC in Italy and together they put out a video magazine dealing with work issues facing Italy. They interview politicians, journalists and others making news and/or willing to give insight and commentary on those issues. This project has been very well received and attracts a tremendous amount of viewers.

This one is actually in English for those of you keeping track of the posts. This is a Manpower commercial from Manpower Sweden, and I have to admit that it is really well done and thought provoking. Easily one of the best I have seen from us.
In my continued effort this week to bring you information about Manpower from around the world I thought you might enjoy this. To better share Manpower experience and best practices in human resource management, Lucille Wu, Managing Director of Manpower Greater China, recently launched her blog on Netease, one of China’s leading web portals. Lucille shares her seasoned experience in talent recruitment and retention and career development on her blog. While I cannot read or speak Chinese I think it looks pretty cool anyway.
