ManpowerGroup Solutions partners with Professional Diversity Network
ManpowerGroup Solutions has formed an exclusive partnership with the Professional Diversity Network, a developer and operator of online networks that provide access to employment opportunities for diverse professionals in the United States.
According to a study of more than 1,200 job seekers in the United States, diverse candidates are listening for different messages from employers than the overall candidate pool, and they are listening in different places. As such, if companies really want to cultivate diversity in the workplace, human resources executives need to be purposeful about their messaging and target their outreach through the channels diverse candidates trust most, ManpowerGroup Solutions says.
The partnership with Professional Diversity Network will provide ManpowerGroup Solutions with unparalleled access to more than 12m candidates who self-identify as diverse, thereby allowing the company to develop more expansive talent pools for clients.
April Savino, vice president of ManpowerGroup, said, "ManpowerGroup has a long commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
"Diversity of people brings diversity of thought, and studies show companies that excel at leveraging diversity perform better financially over the long term. We recognize that our clients want to find the best talent, and this partnership with the Professional Diversity Network will help address those needs."
Through the partnership, ManpowerGroup Solutions will provide the Professional Diversity Network with research and insights into candidates' preferences, behaviors and motivators throughout the hiring process.
Jim Kirsch, Chairman and CEO, Professional Diversity Network, commented, "By combining our broad network of diverse candidates with ManpowerGroup's global expertise and innovative workforce solutions, we can more effectively match diverse talent with progressive organizations across the country.”
The Professional Diversity Network partners with diverse organisations throughout the United States, including: The Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW), the National Able Network and Veterans Today.
Star Jones, president of Professional Diversity Network, added, "A diverse workforce is one of the key factors to an organization's overall success.
"By partnering with ManpowerGroup, we will work collectively towards improving diversity recruiting in the United States."
