— Manpower, a company that builds robots for law enforcement and other agencies, announced Friday that it has hired 4,000 people to fill vacant positions at its Springfield, Mich., headquarters.
Manpower is hiring because it has lost over 700 full-time workers and expects to have more than 10,000 vacant positions.
The company announced the hiring Thursday, just days after it laid off 10,700 people at its offices in Michigan.
Manps chief executive, Joe D. Bannister, said in a news release that the new employees will work in a variety of roles including information technology, sales, business development and operations.
Man Powers headquarters is located in Springfield, which has a population of nearly 5 million people.
