Manpower Partners with Paso Del Norte Group

August 17, 2010 – Manpower Inc. has entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Paso del Norte Group aimed at improving labor and employment services in, and the economic integration and development of, the U.S.-Mexico cross-border Paso del Norte region. The joint venture between Manpower and the Paso del Norte Group will be guided by Paso del Norte's Blueprint for Global Competitiveness, a regional economic development and human capital strategy that has been integrated with a higher-education study supported by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The OECD has been encouraging communities across the globe to review the ways higher education can contribute to regional and city development. “True border security relies on promoting employment opportunity and socio-economic development on both sides of the border,” said David Arkless, Manpower’s president of corporate and government affairs. “Developing people to help them unleash their potential — equipping them with knowledge, skills, and work experience — is the key to creating a more prosperous future for individuals, their families, and their communities.”
