About Manpower

Overview

Manpower is dedicated to enriching people's lives with meaningful employment and development opportunities, as we have done for more than 60 years.


With our global presence and local expertise, and by leveraging the expertise of our parent company, ManpowerGroup, we influence how people and companies work now and how they will work in the future.

Vision & Values

Where we stand in the world of work.

No matter where we are or what we do, there are fundamental beliefs and behaviors that guide our decisions, focus our actions and unite us as a company. ManpowerGroup's vision and values serve to inspire how we interact, create and deliver on our promise to clients, job seekers and ourselves.
 

Our Vision

Our vision is to lead in the creation and delivery of innovative workforce solutions and services that enable our clients to win in the changing world of work.

Our Values

People

We care about people and the role of work in their lives. We respect people as individuals, trusting them, supporting them, enabling them to achieve their aims in work and in life. We help people develop their careers through planning, work, coaching and training. We recognize everyone's contribution to our success - our staff, our clients and our candidates. We encourage and reward achievement.

Knowledge

We share our knowledge, our expertise and our resources so that everyone understands what is important now and what is happening next in the world of work - and knows how to respond. We actively listen and act upon this information to improve our relationships, solutions and services. Based on our understanding of the world of work, we actively pursue the development and adoption of the best practices worldwide.

Innovation

We lead in the world of work. We dare to innovate, to pioneer and to evolve. We never accept the status quo. We constantly challenge the norm to find new and better ways of doing things. We thrive on our entrepreneurial spirit and speed of response - taking risks, knowing that we will not always succeed, but never exposing our clients to risk.

Workforce Diversity

We are about finding the best in everyone and putting them to work. For more than 60 years, Manpower has been guided by the belief that there's a role for every individual in the world of work.

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.

ManpowerGroup is committed to providing equal employment opportunities in a professional, high quality work environment. It is the policy of ManpowerGroup and all of its subsidiaries to recruit, train, promote, transfer, pay and take all employment actions without regard to an employee's race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, religion, age, disability, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by applicable law.

Workforce Development

There are people who want to work but face greater challenges in finding gainful employment. There are employers who want to hire, but can't find people with the skill sets they need. That's why we use our position to determine current and future skills gaps, identify people from various backgrounds who need help entering the workforce, and apply our expertise to create solutions that benefit both job seekers and employers. That's the heart of our workforce development initiatives.

We identify people who face barriers to employment, including individuals receiving public assistance, at-risk youth, veterans, military spouses, people with disabilities, long-term unemployed and more - and then prepare them for in-demand jobs in high-growth industries. Our customized programs provide skills assessments, job training, certification, mentoring and placement services, and partnering with employers, government and community-based organizations.

We feel privileged to help - and proud of the result: Candidates receive training in the skill sets that employers need most. Employers then have access to trained, motivated workers who can step in immediately and contribute to their growth and productivity. Promoting opportunity. Supporting businesses. And strengthening communities.

Community Involvement

Employers. Workers. Two cornerstones of any community. ManpowerGroup 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. Since our beginning, we've considered it our responsibility to be part of resolving social issues and strengthening neighborhoods nationwide through community service. We're proud our support promotes life skills, work readiness and confidence for those of all ages and all walks of life - guiding them toward rewarding, sustainable livelihoods. At the same time, we're developing the talented workforce employers need to operate more effectively, all while helping to build the foundation for healthy communities.

Our volunteer program, TeamWorks, makes use of our inherent strengths by focusing our efforts on developing the workforce of today and tomorrow. ManpowerGroup employees contribute their time, talent, and professional expertise to nonprofits including Junior Achievement, City Year, United Way, Best Buddies, local schools, workforce investment boards and many more.

Philanthropy

Through monetary donations, volunteerism, and in-kind donations the Foundation provides resources which help individuals experience the financial and personal rewards of sustainable work, while strengthening communities and developing a stronger, more diverse work-ready population for employers. Additionally, by providing resources for youth education, the Foundation prepares tomorrow's workforce to conquer the challenges of the changing world of work.
