Manpower outsourcing is a business process that many companies have adopted in Nigeria. This involves engaging a third party to recruit and manage the workforce on their behalf. This service is highly welcomed in Manufacturing, Hospitality, Retail Services, Banking, Insurance, Oil and Gas, and others.
