US-based ManpowerGroup was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by think tank Ethisphere Institute. The recruiter is the only company in the staffing industry to have earned this recognition for three years in a row.
The institute honours global companies which promote ethical business standards and introduce best practices. It reviewed nominations from companies in more than 100 countries and 36 industries. A record number of nominations and applications were made this year and Robert Half International was the only other staffing firm that made it into the 2013 ranking of ethical companies.
ManpowerGroup CEO Jeffrey A. Joerres said the distinction recognises the firm’s “trusted brand” and innovative workforce solutions.
“This continued recognition means a great deal to our nearly 30,000 colleagues around the world. It confirms that responsible and ethical behavior is part of our corporate DNA, and what we have always seen as a commitment to our stakeholders,” he said.
Alex Brigham, executive director of Ethisphere, said: “We are excited to see the 2013 World's Most Ethical Companies take these leadership positions, and embrace the correlation between ethical behavior and improved financial performance.”
