Our 3 values

In order to be and remain a leader in the ever-changing world of work, our decisions are constantly aligned with our three values. 


Human talent is our first priority. We genuinely care about our people and about the role work plays in their lives. We recognise everyone’s contribution to our success and in return offer them as much support as possible – in their career and beyond.


We share our knowledge and expertise so that everyone can see how the world of work is changing and how we can best respond to it. Based on that knowledge, we continuously improve our services, solutions and relations whilst driving the evolution of our industry forward.


We lead in the world of work. We dare to innovate, to pioneer and to evolve. Our entrepreneurial spirit, drive and speed of response mean we are well placed to challenge the norm and continuously improve our services.

On the basis of our vision and values, ManpowerGroup has developed a strategy founded on 5 pillars

Our 5 pillars

ManpowerGroup’s strategy is derived from our vision and is based on the following 5 pillars:


Generating more revenue requires us to develop strategic insights about our clients’ needs and goals, elevating and broadening our mutually-beneficial relationships and measuring our contribution to our clients’ businesses.


Improving our efficiency means achieving speed, quality and effective use of resources throughout all our operations. 


Demonstrating our commitment to innovation requires us to continuously capture creativity in local markets and replicate this around the world. Our role is to develop and expand our capabilities, while creating services aimed at what’s new and what’s next in the world of work.

Thought Leadership

Maintaining our thought leadership means continuously anticipating future market dynamics and contributing to the design of social and employment systems on a global basis.

Organisation and Culture

Evolving our organization and culture requires attracting and retaining high quality people for the long term.

It also requires creating an environment that promotes entrepreneurship, rewards high performance and motivates us to reach our full potential.

6 elements of our business culture

Throughout the world, ManpowerGroup stands for ‘contemporary work’. Whether we are dealing with clients, job seekers or colleagues, we all adhere to the same 6 elements that define our business culture. Together we make up the face of ManpowerGroup. 

Forward looking

We anticipate new developments and make sure we’re ready for them. We influence many of these developments ourselves so we’re well placed to give advice on what’s coming up next in the world of work. Always facing the future, always improving, we’re always leading the way.


We’re for everyone.  We work as a team.  We work with men and women of all ages, all nationalities, and all cultures. We can work with all companies and organizations, large and small, local, national, and international.


Working with clients and candidates every day, all over the world, we recognise how work is changing. We’re knowledgeable, accurate, clear, and concise. This expertise puts us in the best position to help people understand and optimise emerging opportunities in the world of work.

Fresh thinking

We look at things differently, challenging the norm and finding creative, unexpected solutions. This fresh thinking leads to new and better ways of doing things. By making a wider range of different options available, we’re encouraging people to think differently about work and the choices they’re making.


We’re warm and approachable, always finding new ways to make work more interesting. Thoughtful, respectful, and caring, we encourage people to explore new opportunities and expand their abilities. Even if we can’t find someone work – we can point them in the right direction.


We’re honest and truthful. We’re reliable. We have integrity. People trust us to give them the facts and to help them make the right choices. When we say we’ll do something, we do it.
