MILWAUKEE, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, has been named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine's 13th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for its performance as a change agent in the categories of environment, climate change, human rights, employee relations, corporate governance, finances and philanthropy. ManpowerGroup was the only company in its industry to be named to the prestigious list.
"The very nature of the work ManpowerGroup does -- connecting people to meaningful employment, training and tools that enable them to support themselves, build a sense of pride and contribute to the community -- means our core business mission is social responsibility in action," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO. "The success ManpowerGroup achieves in our business allows us to help individuals, families, communities and economies by putting all kinds of people to work. We unleash human potential which translates to the profitability that, at its roots, is sustainability."
In March of this year, ManpowerGroup was named, for the second consecutive year, to the Ethisphere Institute's list of the World's Most Ethical Companies for its proven commitment to ethical leadership, compliance, corporate social responsibility and business practices at large. Last September, Corporate Responsibility Magazine recognized Joerres' significant accomplishments throughout his career in corporate social responsibility with the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award.
ManpowerGroup's 2011 Corporate Social Responsibility Update, "Teaching a Man Not to Fish is Humanly Possible," summarizes how ManpowerGroup is bridging the gap between people and opportunities for work in the most human of ways, including assisting youth unemployed to find work and fighting the crime of human trafficking.
