Manpower Greenville SC has decided to adopt LinkedIn’s new login system.
The Spartanburg, SC, company said Monday that the new login process will be available to employees starting July 1.
“The new login feature makes it easier for our employees to log in with their existing LinkedIn credentials,” said Manpower CEO John Novella.
“By using LinkedIn’s existing login method, we will have a better user experience for our customers and employees, making our systems safer, easier and more efficient.”
The company said it will begin accepting LinkedIn login credentials from employees and contractors beginning on July 1 and that users will have access to the new system “as soon as possible.”
“As soon as we’re ready, we’ll have the new Login system installed and ready for our workforce to use,” Novell said.
The company, which employs roughly 5,000 people, said it’s “working closely with LinkedIn and other organizations to make sure that we can get this right as soon as it is possible.”
LinkedIn has had a rocky relationship with its customers.
In July 2016, it was revealed that LinkedIn had paid $600 million in back pay and fines for misclassifying users and failing to adequately disclose the issue.
In 2016, LinkedIn faced criticism over the way it classified job postings on its website.
