ManpowerGroup Receives 14th Consecutive World's Most Ethical Company Award

ManpowerGroup is pleased to announce that Ethisphere, a leader in defining and improving the standards of ethical business practices, has once again named it one of the World's Most Ethical Companies. This is the 14th time ManpowerGroup has earned this distinction. We have been honored for more than a decade for playing a significant role in generating positive change in societies and communities around the world.

"For 75 years, ManpowerGroup has been committed to doing business the right way for our people, our clients, and the communities in which we operate," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO. "We know these high standards are valued by all of those who work with us, and we're honored to be recognized for the 14th time by Ethisphere. This award is dedicated to our team around the world who live our values, deliver our purpose and help propel our strong ethical culture forward every day."

The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment process, which is based on Ethisphere's unique Ethics Quotient®, contains more than 200 questions about culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and efforts that support a strong value chain. The system provides an operational template for businesses across industries and around the world to identify and formalize best practices.

"People and their prosperity are core to our business and foundational to our ESG strategy too. Today, people — our consumers and consumers of all organizations — are demanding more from their employers and expect them to be clear on their purpose," said Ruth Harper, ManpowerGroup SVP, Chief Marketing & Sustainability Officer. "Increasingly companies are being held to account to be open on the progress they are making to reach their goals around climate, social impact and good governance. Leadership from organizations like Ethisphere helps companies share this progress and is how we can make work and life better for the many, not just the few."

"Ethics matters. Organizations that commit to business integrity through robust programs and practices not only elevate standards and expectations for all, but also have better long-term performance," said Ethisphere CEO, Erica Salmon Byrne. "We continue to be inspired by the World's Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to making real impact for their stakeholders and displaying exemplary values-based leadership. Congratulations to ManpowerGroup for earning a place in the World's Most Ethical Companies community."

In 2023, 135 honorees were recognized spanning 19 countries and 46 industries. The complete list of the 2023 World's Most Ethical Companies and methodology can be found at:
