ManpowerGroup Recognized for Fourth Consecutive Year as One of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises
Women's Business Enterprise Council Recognizes ManpowerGroup for Innovative Best Practices in Creating Partnerships with Female Entrepreneurs
For the fourth consecutive year, ManpowerGroup has been recognized by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as one of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises. The national award recognizes 29 top corporations for their world-class programs that help to create level playing fields for women's business enterprises to compete for corporate contracts. ManpowerGroup is one of only three corporations to be recognized for the fourth consecutive year.
"ManpowerGroup is committed to working with diverse business owners, and especially women entrepreneurs," said Jorge Perez, senior vice president of Manpower North America. "These small- and medium-size businesses are growing rapidly and are critical to the jobs recovery. It makes good business sense to help emerging enterprises grow and develop given the positive contributions they make to the labor market and the economy as a whole."
ManpowerGroup continues to advance its supplier diversity initiatives with innovative programs that engage women-owned businesses in ways that add value. For example, in 2011 ManpowerGroup launched an Executive Mentoring Program to match high-potential, diverse suppliers with ManpowerGroup's top leaders in order to create business and leadership development opportunities. In addition, ManpowerGroup's hallmark annual roundtable event is an unsurpassed development opportunity for suppliers in the staffing industry.
ManpowerGroup will accept the award during a ceremony at the Landmark Theatre in Baltimore on Thursday, March 22.
