By merging the activities of four competing job- and recruitment agencies, one personal leasing supplier for production companies in the Czech and Slovak Republics emerged under the name Manuvia, with more than 12,000 employees.

In the Manuvia group, the agencies Express People, Wincott People, McROY and Xawax joined forces, its media representative informed the TASR newswire on September 3. The process of two acquisitions and one merger, including the integration processes, lasted for almost two years and it has already been officially approved by the Office for Protection of Competition in Czechia.

Adapting to the market situation

“The recruitment and job agency sector has been facing a very intense consolidation,” said Peter Dosedla, member of the group, adding that this is a big challenge and opportunity at the same time. He added that the estimated consolidated turnover for 2018 should amount to €150 million.

Dosedla expects that the connection of the two firms complementing each other with orders, territories of activities and specialisations, should help secure further growth in operational effectiveness, the ability to react more flexibly and quickly to the specific needs of clients, and to changes of the constantly developing labour market, as cited by the SITA newswire.

Ambitions within CEE

The group has the ambition of having 20,000 agency employees by the end of 2022, and to make it among the best five job- and recruitment agencies in the region of central and eastern Europe, Dosedla revealed, as quoted by TASR.

The company has 6,000 beds in its own lodging-houses directly in big industrial complexes where its employees are accommodated – along with a partner. The mobility of workers is simplified by a fleet of buses, chair of the group’s Board Dušan Letošník explained. The smooth recruitment and integration of workers is helped by 500 coordinators and foreign workers are helped by 50 interpreters.

Manuvia has 20 branches in six CEE countries – in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine; and it specialises in allocating workers to physical-work positions, especially for the automotive, electric industries and logistics, TASR wrote.

It is among the leaders in recruitment, within the European Union as well as from third countries, according to SITA.
