MILWAUKEE, March 6, 2013

MILWAUKEE, March 6,2013 /PRNewswire/ --ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world
leader in innovative workforce solutions, was today named one of the World's
Most Ethical ("WME") Companies by the Ethisphere Institute for the third
consecutive year. The 2013 WME companies are those that truly embrace ethical
business practices and demonstrate industry leadership, forcing peers to
follow suit or fall behind.


"The World's Most Ethical distinction recognizes how ManpowerGroup unleashes
human potential, delivers innovative workforce solutions, and has the most
trusted brand in the industry," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup
Chairman and CEO. "This continued recognition means a great deal to our nearly
30,000 colleagues around the world. It confirms that responsible and ethical
behavior is part of our corporate DNA, and what we have always seen as a
commitment to our stakeholders,"

A record number of nominations and applications this year made the 2013 list –
the most competitive in the seven-year history of the World's Most Ethical
Companies. ManpowerGroup is the only company in the staffing services industry
sector that has earned recognition for three consecutive years.

"Not only did more companies apply than any year in the past, which
demonstrates that ethical activity is an important part of many of these
companies' business models, but we are also seeing more companies be proactive
and create new initiatives that expand ethics programs and cultures across
entire industries, such as industry-based ethics associations and other
activities," saidAlex Brigham, Executive Director of Ethisphere. "We are
excited to see the 2013 World's Most Ethical Companies take these leadership
positions, and embrace the correlation between ethical behavior and improved
financial performance."

Through in-depth research and a multi-step analysis, Ethisphere reviewed
nominations from companies in more than 100 countries and 36 industries. The
methodology for the World's Most Ethical Companies includes reviewing codes of
ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction histories; evaluating the
investment in innovation and sustainable business practices; looking at
activities designed to improve corporate citizenship; and studying nominations
from senior executives, industry peers, suppliers and customers.
