The ranking of HR companies in Slovakia is topped by the company Manuvia. Most of its revenues come from the leasing of employees. It was established in 2018 when the companies Express People, Wincott People, McROY and Xawax merged. In 2019, the Eurotrade group became a part of Manuvia. The Arca Capital group was behind this large consolidation of the Slovak and Czech markets.

“We have been preparing labour market analyses as part of our annual Career and Employment Guide for 21 years now,” said Ján Pallo, publisher of The Slovak Spectator. “For the first time, we have detailed information from all the important players on the market.”
The ranking was created thanks to the cooperation between The Slovak Spectator and the company FinStat. Five criteria were used to evaluate which agencies were the largest.
The ranking does not include employment agencies for direct searches of experts or managers (executive search firms) because they use different methods for placements.
When creating the ranking, the below factors had the following weights:
1) average number of permanent employees in 2019 - leased employees not included (45% weight)
2) total number of placements in 2019 - leased positions not included (white-collar workers - 18% weight, blue-collar workers - 9% weight)
3) number of leased employees in 2019 in full-time equivalent - only permanent employees (10% weight)
4) average sales revenue between the years 2016-2018 (13% weight)
5) average net profit between the years 2016-2018 (5% weight)
More details can be found in the Career and Employment Guide 2020 yearbook published by The Slovak Spectator newspaper. It contains the results of the analysis and complete rankings, as well as other interesting information about the labour market.
