NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, has been named one of Corporate Responsibility magazine's Best Corporate Citizens for 2012 in the Business Services sector. ManpowerGroup was named in second place and is the only company in its industry to make the top 10.
ManpowerGroup was recognized as one of the top two companies in the sector for its performance as a change agent in the categories of environment, climate change, human rights, employee relations, corporate governance, finances and philanthropy. The 10 Best Corporate Citizens by Industry rankings were unveiled following the 2012 Commit!Forum, an annual conference that brings together the world's leaders shaping the face of corporate responsibility to tackle the challenging issues surrounding the role of business in society.
"With the world firmly in the Human Age, where there are new demands for innovation, productivity and talent, businesses of all sizes must be agile enough to adapt to the fast-changing environment and effectively operate in a profitable yet sustainable way," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO. "More than ever before, being a responsible company is now a key driver of employee engagement, which is essential for an organization to unleash human potential and earn a competitive advantage."

Joerres, who received the inaugural Corporate Responsibility Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Commit!Forum for leading a company that brings corporate social responsibility (CSR) to life every day, participated in the forum's Annual Responsible C-Suite Roundtable at the New York Stock Exchange.
The panel explored CEOs' approaches to CSR, how CSR gains traction within an organization, the ways it drives strategic value for businesses and the measurable impact of CSR programs. Joerres was joined for the discussion by:
- Duncan Niederauer, CEO, NYSE Euronext (Moderator)
- Nicholas K. Akins, President and CEO, American Electric Power
- Hikmet Ersek, President, CEO and Director, The Western Union Company
- Jeffrey M. Ettinger, Chairman, President and CEO, Hormel Foods
- Bob Moritz, US Chairman and Senior Partner, PwC
"Corporate social responsibility efforts are much more sustainable if they are naturally aligned with the work a company does," added Joerres. "ManpowerGroup's core business is connecting talented people to companies who need their skills in order to enhance individual and organizational competitiveness, which translates to the profitability we provide in a sustainable way."
Following the panel, Joerres and his fellow panellists rang The Closing Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange. A video of the ringing of The Closing Bell® can be viewed at
