Manpower announced today that it has been named one of PINK magazine’s 2008 “Top Companies for Women,” and is the only employment services firm named to the list. PINK’s exclusive annual ranking, issued for the second time this year, recognizes the prominent role of women at Manpower, particularly in top leadership roles.
“These companies are true leaders in the advancement of women,” says PINK’s founding editor, Cynthia Good. “They all realize that moving women to the top goes beyond issues like maternity leave and flextime. It’s also about giving women real authority to change the corporation and achieve their career dreams.”
“For six decades, Manpower has provided a platform for women to enter the workforce. The fact that many of our own leaders are women sets a pace and tone that energizes the organization,” said Manpower Chairman and CEO Jeff Joerres. “It is the diversity of thought and diversity of experience that these women bring as strong leaders. And I am proud that Manpower is being globally recognized for doing good while doing well — it’s one of the secrets to our success.”
