Do you need a compliant solution to hire talent overseas in support of U.S. government contracts?

ManpowerGroup Public Sector (MGPS) brings 15 years of experience providing personnel solutions Outside of the Continental U.S. (OCONUS) for U.S. government contracts. We offer deep capabilities in sourcing, recruiting, and hiring local talent in international markets to deliver qualified people to fulfill contract needs in diverse skill sets, ranging from Information Technology, Language Services and Engineering to Administrative Personnel.

MGPS OCONUS personnel solutions make it possible to deliver locally — and federally — compliant staffing solutions, while eliminating the learning curve and risk associated with attempting to directly hire or deploy talent globally. Whether you need a few resources in various countries, or a large number of personnel who must be sourced, hired and managed, MGPS provides flexible solutions.

Navigating overseas labor laws and employer regulations can be daunting. U.S. companies must take care to validate local employment regulations and customs, while complying with U.S. government contract provisions in a cost-realistic but competitive manner. MGPS offers its customers proven experience with regional knowledge of local practices and regulations to navigate evolving labor laws in overseas markets.

We help our customers identify and manage potential risks, including severance laws, tax laws, benefits and other payment regulations, visa issues for third-country nationals and other vital details.

ManpowerGroup offers a global footprint with nearly 4,000 offices in more than 80 countries. Whether you have specific resources you need to hire, or need a turnkey recruiting solution for in-country talent, MGPS offers a flexible approach to sourcing, recruiting and hiring OCONUS personnel through our U.S.-based, federally compliant subsidiary. MGPS provides U.S. government contractors a single point of contact, as well as consolidated reporting, when hiring OCONUS personnel in multiple countries.

In addition to hiring local talent, we bring experience deploying U.S. expatriates overseas to support classified contracts. We assist with personnel relocation, support and logistics.
