Manpower, Microsoft Aim to Help Youths

March 21 2011

Manpower Inc. has teamed up with Microsoft to develop joint programs aimed at improving employment among young people, the companies announced last week. The global initiative will begin with efforts in the Middle East and Africa.

Along with other partners, Microsoft and Manpower are developing a training curriculum for young entrepreneurs that include technical, organizational and business development skills.

"The rising rates of unemployment among young people are deeply disturbing, and this generation is at risk of becoming the new long-term unemployed," said David Arkless, Manpower Inc. president of corporate and government affairs.
