ManpowerGroup Named to Top 50 in Innovation on 2011 InformationWeek 500 List

ManpowerGroup Recognized for Innovative Use of Technology to Create Effective Business Solutions

ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today that it has been named in the top 50 of InformationWeek magazine's 23rd annual InformationWeek 500 list, the most prestigious business technology ranking showcasing the most innovative organizations.

ManpowerGroup was named in 45th position on the ranking under the Consulting and Business Services Industry and is the only company in its industry to be named to the list. The InformationWeek 500 is by invitation only and spotlights the power of innovation in information technology among U.S.-headquartered companies, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders, among organizations with annual revenues of $250 million. The ranking measures the strategies and initiatives at the core of business technology innovation.

"We have a history of a commitment to innovation which we continue to leverage in order to deliver the speed and solutions that our clients need to win," said Denis Edwards, ManpowerGroup Global Chief Information Officer. "Rapidly evolving technology is transforming the World of Work like never before, and to thrive in today's marketplace, efficient processes are needed to quickly identify the best talent for our clients, assess those candidates and get qualified candidates in front of hiring managers globally."

In January, at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, ManpowerGroup launched a suite of innovative mobile talent applications to allow employers greater on-the-go interaction with potential candidates, giving clients up-to-the-minute access to the talented individuals they need to help achieve their business goals, and making it easier for candidates to search for a job. The Direct Talent Recruiter Mobile Application, the Direct Talent iPhone Application and the Direct Talent Candidate Mobile Application provide innovative features via many different operating systems designed to bridge the gap between candidates and clients. Also at the World Economic Forum, ManpowerGroup launched the world's first "World of Work Insight" application on Apple's popular iPad. The purpose of the innovative ManpowerGroup iPad app is to provide dynamic access to the company's insight and connect to substantial research on the most critical trends affecting today's global economy.

ManpowerGroup Canada's web-based video interviewing technology, "Candidate Studio," allows clients to preview candidates via a "playlist" from any location, including their smartphones, to gain intuitive impressions in a quick and convenient way. ManpowerGroup Belgium has partnered with Teleportel to introduce the "Virtual Image Officer." This virtual receptionist communicates via a video screen and is a real person who makes genuine eye contact with the visitor. This new technology supplies clients with high-quality people who quickly assimilate to become ambassadors of their business, while at the same time reducing costs and increasing business flexibility.
