The DEI® is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and the US Business Leadership Network® (USBLN®), honoring those organizations with a commitment to driving their organization's success through full inclusive business practices.
ManpowerGroup was one of 42 companies out of a total of 83 to receive a top score based on points awarded in four major categories: Culture & Leadership, Enterprise-Wide Access, Employment Practices and Community Engagement & Support Services.

"Every day across the United States we put over 70,000 people into work, so by the nature of our business we feel privileged to be able to contribute to and celebrate diversity. Doing well by doing good has been in our DNA for nearly 70 years, and this recognition is a testament to the great work of our people."
