MILWAUKEE, April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today that it has been ranked as both the Leader and a Star Performer in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix, published in the April 2012 Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) – Service Provider Landscape and Capability Assessment report. This is the second consecutive year ManpowerGroup has been recognized as the Leader by Everest Group, further cementing its status as the top global provider of RPO solutions.

“We are honored to be recognized by Everest Group as the global leader among RPO service providers,” said Kate Donovan, Managing Director of ManpowerGroup Solutions. “Our clients tell us that our deep recruiting expertise and rigorous processes enable ManpowerGroup to deliver the best talent at a predictable cost, exceeding their expectations. We strive to bring cutting-edge insight and innovation to clients through our RPO solutions, and this recognition from Everest Group validates our efforts.”

The Everest Group RPO – Service Provider Landscape and Capability Assessment report rated 22 of the industry’s leading service providers through its comprehensive PEAK Matrix evaluation framework. Based on specific criteria, such as market success, scale, scope, technology capability and delivery footprint, the report categorized the providers into Leaders, Major Contenders and Emerging Players.

Due to its top quartile performance in the majority of these categories, ManpowerGroup was ranked as the Leader in global RPO. The company also received Everest Group’s Star Performer designation as a result of its 2011 strength in performance. ManpowerGroup has emerged as the top leader among providers based on its flexible and scalable RPO delivery capability and market success. Moreover, the report shows that ManpowerGroup held the largest market share among all providers for large markets and the second-largest for mid-markets in 2011.

“ManpowerGroup has proven to be a leader among Leaders in the RPO service provider landscape,” said Rajesh Ranjan, Vice President of Everest Group. “ManpowerGroup has clearly met our standards to be recognized as the leading global RPO provider.”

ManpowerGroup was also recognized as one of only a few “true global” providers, receiving very high marks for the extent of its global footprint that extends to more than 80 countries and territories.

“As clients implement increasingly sophisticated, global workforce strategies, flexible solutions like RPO are more important than ever in helping businesses identify top talent and achieve their profitability goals,” said Jonas Prising, President of the Americas for ManpowerGroup. “Our clients trust ManpowerGroup to select their most important asset – the people who drive their businesses forward. This recognition by Everest Group reinforces our position as the RPO industry leader.”

A comparative share analysis of the RPO service providers within different geographic regions, based on the number of deals and number of hires in each region, shows ManpowerGroup to be either the top provider or among the top three providers in North America, Latin America, Asia and the EMEA region. Additionally, ManpowerGroup was found to be one of only four providers to have signed five or more multi-country deals in 2011, signifying the company’s increasing global presence.
