At ManpowerGroup, we want to make a positive contribution to society by making the world of work better.

Founded 75 years ago to help people find meaningful work, ManpowerGroup still embodies the principle of ‘Doing Well By Doing Good’ that back in 1948 inspired our founder Elmer Winter. We remain committed to this dual objective: generating profit for our shareholders and creating value for all our stakeholders, employees, temporary workers and associates, candidates, customers, suppliers, partners, communities and for wider society.

Today, our work in the labour market is based on this founding principle and on the ManpowerGroup values (‘People, Knowledge, Innovation’): We believe meaningful and sustainable employment has the power to change the world.

Our Working to Change the World Plan

Our sustainability plan (‘Working to Change the World’) addresses the challenges of the world of work through three priorities (ESG), focusing on the areas where we have the most impact:

  • Planet, responding to the climate emergency;
  • People and Prosperity, placing talent at the heart of our approach;
  • The Principles of Governance, setting high ethical standards.

More information about our ESG action plan available on our global website.

Our Working to Change the World plan reflects the United Nations Global Compact sustainability principles and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We have been actively engaged with the United Nations (UN) since signing the Global Compact in 2006. In 2015, the UN established the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), its blueprint for a more sustainable future. We are committed to promoting all the goals and are particularly focused on those goals where we can have the biggest impact.
