The Challenge

Recruiting for the world's largest sporting event was a daunting task. In a very limited time, the organizing committee and its supporting organizations had to fill 12,000 jobs, with positions ranging from event officials to food service personnel to tech crews for news broadcasters. So they turned to ManpowerGroup.

The Solution

Together, ManpowerGroup Solutions Recruitment Process Outsourcing and Manpower Staffing delivered a blended sourcing solution focused on three areas:

  • Candidate Attraction: A social recruiting strategy combined with a user-friendly web and mobile experience enabled us to quickly reach the best candidates for each job.
  • Talent Assessment: A fast and accurate online process for recruiters, including video interviews and assessments managed on a single portal.
  • Project Management: Convenient web and mobile access provided the tools our clients needed to quickly make informed hiring decisions.
