The aim of the Total Workforce IndexTM published by Manpower is to provide an indicator of workforce potential in different countries. According to the agency, the data and insights provided can inform workforce planning in fields such as capacity planning, cost savings, location strategies, organisational restructuring and remote work allocation. The index scores 76 global workforce markets based on over 200 factors and indicates how they score in four categories: availability, cost efficiency, regulation and productivity.
