Ethisphere is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practice and honors companies driving positive change.

The pandemic has served as a stark reminder of the importance and urgency with which we must address inequities that exist across so many lines – income and race, gender and age, politics and beliefs, geographies and skills – lines that we as organizations span and for which we feel a clear leadership and community responsibility.  ManpowerGroup  is committed to leading this change and proud to be recognized as a leader in ethical business practice. We will always take seriously our responsibility and our commitment to reach, assess, train and upskill people of all communities because we do know that work, education, skills and aspiration are critical parts of community cohesion, societal prosperity and inclusive growth.”
