MILWAUKEE, April 29, 2013

MILWAUKEE, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world
leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today that it has been
recognized as a Leader for the third consecutive year in the Everest Group
PEAK Matrix published in the April 2013 report "Recruitment Process
Outsourcing (RPO) – Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix Assessment."
As the three-time Leader in the PEAK Matrix, ManpowerGroup is unequivocally
the top global RPO solutions provider.


The Everest Group PEAK Matrix rated 25 of the industry's leading service
providers through its comprehensive evaluation framework. Based on specific
criteria including market success, scale, scope, technology capability,
delivery footprint and buyer satisfaction, the report categorized the
providers into Leaders, Major Contenders and Emerging Players.

"ManpowerGroup continues to lead the field with its ability to leverage its
recruiting experience through its global footprint," said Rajesh Ranjan, Vice
President, Business Process Outsourcing Research, Everest Group. "New this
year was added insight into the client experience, an additional point of
strength and differentiation for ManpowerGroup. In some regions, RPO continues
to grow in maturity and adoption, and in other markets, particularly Latin
America, ManpowerGroup has a dominant presence both in terms of breadth and
scale of services."

ManpowerGroup achieved top quartile performance in the Everest Group
assessment, receiving the top ranking 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 mid-markets in 2012.

"We are pleased to again receive recognition from Everest Group for our market
success and delivery capability," said Kate Donovan, ManpowerGroup Solutions,
Global RPO President. "Uncertain market conditions combined with a shortage of
talent have made employers' needs increasingly complex. Globally, employers
need the highest quality of talent delivered with a superior candidate
experience as well as process efficiency. This requires strong capability and
flexibility to create sophisticated solutions. With an extensive global
network and a deep understanding of local markets, ManpowerGroup Solutions
delivers the best talent at a predictable cost to alleviate the pressure
clients feel when it comes to talent acquisition strategies."

Donovan was recently named to the newly created role of Global RPO President
for ManpowerGroup Solutions. This expanded RPO leadership role is a reflection
of how the human capital solutions market has evolved, with companies taking a
strategic view of their global workforce needs and associated costs. She will
continue to strengthen ManpowerGroup's RPO footprint and delivery capability,
and focus on the innovation required by its global client base.

"ManpowerGroup recognized the emergence of RPO in its early stages, mobilized
teams worldwide to support the offering, and today we have a sophisticated
global RPO practice," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup President.
"ManpowerGroup's consistent exceptional performance in the Everest Group PEAK
Matrix is a reflection of our strong RPO capabilities and Kate's leadership of
RPO globally. RPO is one of our strategic focus areas, and we continue to
invest and innovate to ensure our global RPO leadership position."

The report also offered 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. According to the report, ManpowerGroup is
among the top providers in North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and the
EMEA region. More information about the Recruitment Process Outsourcing –

New White Paper Helps Employers Know When to Build, When to Buy Needed Skills

Additionally, ManpowerGroup Solutions today released the white paper,
"Recruiting a Competitive Workforce: Should Needed Skills be Built or Bought?"
Developing a long-term competitive workforce is more complicated than ever as
the global talent mismatch persists. Recognizing that certain skills are in
short supply, it is important for organizations to create a long-term talent
strategy that addresses what skills are needed and how the people with those
skills will be brought into the organization.

Leveraging expertise from relationships with RPO clients worldwide,
ManpowerGroup Solutions outlines the fundamental factors that contribute to
building a competitive workforce and a guide for determining the build versus
buy model for recruiting the right talent to grow an organization. The paper
includes strategies for building a competitive workforce and key
considerations for determining when to build or buy needed talent.
