MANCAN Inc. Staffing Celebrates 45 years of Excellence.

Mancan Inc., a staffing solutions company, with corporate offices in Massillon, Ohio. is celebrating its forty fifth anniversary in just a few days.

Mancan Inc. has put tens of thousands of people to work over the past four decades.   “I couldn’t have imagined doing anything else for the past 45 years,” said President and CEO, Jonathan Mason when asked how he got started in the staffing industry. Owning a staffing business wasn’t Mason’s original career choice.  After graduating in 1967 from Kent State University, with an Engineering degree, Mason accepted a position with Eaton, Yale & Towne as an industrial engineer. He later took a position with Marlite as a project engineer.  From there, Mason headed the installation and startup of the Great Plains Bag Plant, later Smurfit Stone, in New Philadelphia.  In 1976 Mason purchased a Manpower Franchise located in Canton, OH. 30 years later, in 2006, Mason disengaged from Manpower, and began using his company’s registered corporate name, Mancan Inc., dropping the franchised name, Manpower Services. “Mainly, I just wanted to grow without territory restrictions and be independent” he said, “which, proved to be a wise business decision, as 15 years has since passed and we have grown from 15 offices in 3 states, to 39 offices in 6 states and have no plans to stop growing and expanding any time soon.”

As an employer, temporary or supplemental staffing allows a customer/company to hire the employees they need for specific tasks or times, such as a project that exceeds their current capabilities or a substitute for an employee on leave. Temporary employment can also be a good way to test out new employees to find out if they are a good fit for the company before hiring a permanent person. Approximately 65% of all Mancan assignments result in an offer of permanent hire by the host company.

Being employed by a temporary staffing agency gives the opportunity for employees to see what different company cultures are like and what they might prefer as an employee.  Securing a temporary job is often relatively quick and easy. To get started, all one really has to do is set up an appointment with Mancan and go through the personal interview process with a professional Mancan staffing specialist, where they share some specifics about their workstyle, skill set, and what kind of position and organization they’re looking for. Mancan will match their skills and desires with open opportunities that seem like a good fit, at no cost to the applicant. Mancan Inc. employed over 25,000 employees last year, and has an increased number of  employees assigned as this is being written. We have been met with challenging times over the course of the last 18 months, but we are finding ways to meet these challenges which results in meeting the needs of our customers.  

“We get to know our customers, who they are, what they’re interested in, and how we can help them achieve their goals. With this information, we put a plan into place that communicates our value. Our clients want a relationship with their staffing provider, they want someone that listens, learns and understands their needs, their business and then they want someone who is a partner to them not just a vendor. Mancan uses those expectations as a minimum service requirement, and builds our staffing solution for our client from there.  We aren’t satisfied to reach a goal, reach the bar, meet an expectation-We are only satisfied when we’ve exceeded the goal, raised the bar and set new expectations, which is something genuinely unique to most businesses today. We want more for our clients than they want for themselves and we make sure they get it.” said Mason, when asked how his staffing company withstood the test of time to get to the point of being in business for 45 years!
