ManpowerGroup Escalates Corporate Partnership Effort in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

ManpowerGroup's David Arkless Voted President of the Board of End Human Trafficking Now!

ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, is honored to announce that David Arkless has become President of the Board for End Human Trafficking Now! (EHTN), a Geneva-based organization which assists businesses in adopting zero-tolerance policies designed to prevent, and ultimately eliminate human trafficking.

Arkless has worked for many years to build awareness of the plight of trafficked victims by partnering with counter-trafficking organizations and focusing on the eradication of forced labour in their supply chains.  He has served as a special envoy for EHTN for six years.  To date, more than 12,000 companies have signed the Athens Ethical Principles, a declaration ManpowerGroup helped create in 2006. Weakening trafficking circles and developing widespread understanding of the issue's impact and reach demands tireless promotion, both internally within an organization and externally through its relationships with investors, communities and clients.  

"ManpowerGroup continues to leverage corporate best practices in policy, advocacy and communicating issues to build the awareness and accountability levels needed to ensure that all workers embedded in a supply chain are legitimately treated," said David Arkless, ManpowerGroup President of Corporate and Government Affairs.  "All corporations face the opportunity to identify where their own employees or supply chains might be culpable in acts of human trafficking and to reverse the impact by unleashing the potential of victims of these acts.  The advent of today's Human Age, an era marked by the rising power of individual choice and potential has made counter-trafficking initiatives an essential priority for all organizations."

Arkless is available to speak with the media about supply chains analysis techniques his push for the certification of employment agencies, particularly in Asia and Eastern Europe, to ensure that all recruitment agencies are not facades for traffickers and how corporations can work with the expert organizations dedicated solely to freeing slaves.
