"For more than seven decades, our mission has been clear: to connect people with meaningful, sustainable employment while providing our clients with the talent and workforce solutions they need to succeed. As we celebrate this milestone, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to our clients and the millions of associates we have placed with them for their enduring trust and collaboration," said Prising.

"Since day one, we have believed that every permanent and temporary assignment, every learning opportunity, has the potential to change someone's life. We know this from the millions of people we have placed in meaningful employment throughout our history," said Ruth Harper, Chief Sustainability Officer. "And when we look to the future and see the speed with which skills are changing, we are committed to being creators of talent at scale – especially for emerging sectors like tech and in roles that will power the green transition. This is good for people, their prosperity, and the planet."

ManpowerGroup was founded as Manpower in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1948 when attorneys Elmer Winter and Aaron Scheinfeld struggled to find a temporary typist to meet a deadline, identifying a gap in the market. At the same time, there was an influx of working women as men returned from World War II. Manpower quickly expanded internationally and today, the company's Diversification, Digitization, and Innovation (DDI) strategy is transforming how it operates, allowing it to navigate the current landscape and offer a full spectrum of workforce solutions across its family of brands in more than 70 countries and territories:

  • Manpower specializes in contingent staffing, permanent resourcing, and upskilling through its Manpower MyPath® program.
  • Experis focuses on IT services and professional resourcing, and advanced technical training, coaching, and skills development via the Experis Academy.
  • Talent Solutions delivers data-driven talent management, including RPO, TAPFIN-MSP, and Right Management, all powered by the company's PowerSuite® HR tech stack.

The closing bell ceremony will be broadcast on NYSE TV Live from 3:30 - 4:00 pm ET.
