HONG KONG, Nov. 1,2012 /PRNewswire/ --ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world

Awards 2012.

Experis was recognized for its deep industry expertise and unique
understanding of workforce challenges, and for its leadership in accelerating
the growth of companies by attracting and assessing highly specialized
professionals across the IT, Finance and Engineering industries by Asian
financial publication Capital Weekly. The prestigious professional talent
resourcing award is the gold standard in recognizing talent recruitment
leaders.

"Experis is at the forefront of sourcing Asian talent to meet growing demand,
connecting hard-to-find talent to businesses that require their skills," said
Lancy Chui, ManpowerGroup Hong Kong Managing Director. "Talent shortages are
especially acute in the region and talent is more than just people — it is
people with specific skills who help accelerate business growth. Experis finds
the right fit and continually develops that talent."

Throughout the region, ManpowerGroup's 2012 annual Talent Shortage Survey
found that employers are struggling to fill IT, Accounting, Finance, and
Engineering positions. Engineers are particularly sought-after in Japan and IT
professionals are proving elusive in Australia, where 81% and 50% of employers
respectively across all industry sectors cannot source workers with the
required skills.

ManpowerGroup's research revealed that over a third of Asia-Pacific employers
(35%) cited a lack of available applicants or no applicants as the reason for
their difficulty in filling jobs, 29% blamed a lack of technical competencies
and 28% pointed to a lack of employability skills. In the Human Age, where
talent is the new "it," there is nevertheless a growing mismatch between the
skills available and the specific skills required by employers.

This scarcity of talent in the region will only increase as the region's
economies grow; ManpowerGroup has anticipated these challenges by evolving its
professional resourcing and project-based workforce solutions organizations in
five of Asia-Pacific operations — Australia, China, Hong Kong, India and
Japan — to Experis. Consisting of expert recruiters recruiting experts in
their field, Experis attracts the best professional candidates that allow
businesses to flourish.
