Our Mission


Manpower is committed to connecting people to companies by building sustainable partnerships, targeted recruiting strategies and new career opportunities.

About Us

Since 1959, Manpower has been serving the Fox Valley area with local ownership since it’s beginning. Our first office was in Elgin, with Aurora opening a couple years later when George Mihelic bought the franchise in 1972. In the early 1980’s George opened the Palatine office and was joined in business by his son, Tom, in 1991. Together they opened the Yorkville office in 1993, and Tom now owns and oversees all four branch locations and the territory in the western suburbs, west of Route 59.


Since the beginning, the Fox Valley Manpower Franchise had prided itself on having local recruiting teams to find local candidates. We are experienced and involved in the communities we serve, and our teams are experts at recruiting manufacturing, distribution/logistics, office and professional employees in Kane and Kendall Counties.


We believe that there is no one size fits all approach to our clients or candidates, and work with each individual company and candidate to find a personalized solution.
