Community Matters to Us

The very nature of what we do - connecting people to tools, opportunities, and training that enable them to find
meaningful employment, support themselves and their families, and help build more sustainable communities - puts social responsibility at Manpower's core. Our commitment to producing a positive impact on individuals and societies is also an extension of our values:
       • Respect for individuals and communities and the important role work plays in people's lives
       • Sharing our knowledge and expertise to develop sustainable workforce practices
       • Seeking innovative ways to develop socially inclusive work environments for the long term.
Our social responsibility principles and practices advance our focus on the world of work: We serve as a bridge to employment for all - linking the disadvantaged and disenfranchised to opportunities that help them survive and thrive. But it goes even further. As part of ManpowerGroup, we also strive to operate at the highest level of integrity and to be an effective and imaginative agent of change - even in the smallest communities.

Workforce Diversity

Since our inception in 1977, Manpower has been on the forefront of promoting workforce diversity in businesses. We take great pride in furthering the potential of individuals of diverse cultures, talents and experience. We always consider what people can do, versus what they can't do. And we make every effort to provide opportunities for anyone who is seeking the rewards and dignity of work.
Manpower is committed to providing equal employment opportunities in a professional, high quality work environment.

Workforce Development

With a skills gap ever present in the workforce there are people who want to work - with many diverse backgrounds - but face challenges in finding gainful employment. There are employers who want to hire while increasing diversity, but can't seem to find the skill sets they need. That's where Manpower shines. We work directly with our associates to understand their transferable skills and connect them with employers that can benefit. Additionally, our candidates have unlimited access to powerYOU, where they are able to learn new skills for free, so employers will have access to trained, motivated workers who can step in immediately and contribute.

Community Involvement

Employers. Workers. Two cornerstones of any community. Manpower brings them together for their mutual benefit. That's why we're naturally committed to making our communities more sustainable places to live, work and do business. We encourage our staff to be active in their communities not only in a professional but a personal capacity. We are proud supporters of organizations that enrich the lives of people in our community.

Women Leadership Awards Event Details 

ManpowerGroup Named "Best Company to Work for Women"

"Creating an inclusive environment where women want to work is about more than just policies and percentages," said Becky Frankiewicz, ManpowerGroup North America President. "At ManpowerGroup, we have long been a promoter of inclusion and gender parity in the workplace, so it is a great honor to receive this Women's Choice Award recognition. Organizations that are serious about getting more women into leadership roles and including half the talent in the workforce must go beyond programs and change culture. Change starts from the top and must be championed by male, as well as female leaders. While leaders need to create systemic change, we can all start by doing something different today."

ManpowerGroup's report, Seven Steps to Conscious Inclusion: A Practical Guide to Accelerating More Women into Leadership provides practical steps to accelerate organizations to achieve conscious inclusion and close the gender gap.

"Action has never been more important than now and we take great pride in offering women an objective and uniformed reporting process so they can choose where to work with greater confidence," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women's Choice Award. "We recognize that gender discrepancies are very real in the workplace, and knowing we can help women to choose an organization that supports her values is core to our mission. It's an honor to recognize ManpowerGroup as a company that works toward empowering their female employees."

The Women's Choice Award for Best Companies to Work For is the only award that reflects the needs and preferences of women based on publicly available data, which aligns with employee and consumer appreciation for corporate transparency. Data was compiled from a variety of publicly available sources and then weighed accordingly for each of the three categories.
