A boost to the community & broader value for business

The Supplier Diversity Initiative was designed to provide innovative approaches to recruiting, developing and increasing our diverse supplier base. Our program includes women, minorities, veterans, disadvantaged, and small business owners who share our mission of providing quality services to their customers. We collaborate with diversity suppliers who share our vision of being the best provider of higher value staffing services and the center for quality employment opportunities.

ManpowerGroup is committed to developing relationships with diversity suppliers to collaborate on the innovative workforce solutions we offer our customers worldwide. Through these collaborative efforts, we can help strengthen the economic wealth of our diverse business communities, which will, in turn, contribute to the overall growth and expansion of our markets. We have provided a database of both approved and sourced diversity suppliers as a tool for you to access suppliers in your state.

  • Outreach - actively seeking diverse suppliers through minority and business development organizations and participation in various trade show activities.
  • Certification - verification of minority or women-owned status through screening processes; Qualification - review and input of selected business criteria and referral to field offices, corporate account representatives, etc. for consideration.
  • Development - review of additional needs of suppliers and exploring ways to provide assistance to them.
