MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN - ManpowerGroup® (NYSE: MAN), develops innovative solutions for hundreds of thousands of businesses every year, while helping them transform in a fast-changing world of work by sourcing, assessing, developing and managing the talent that enables them to win for the past 70 years. In 2018, ManpowerGroup® was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the ninth year and one of Fortune's Most Admired Companies for the sixteenth year. ManpowerGroup® understands that technology is changing organizations and companies will need more employees to meet the demand stimulated by automation. ManpowerGroup® surveyed 2,000 American employers and learned that 91% will increase their staff as they shift to more advanced, automated processes.
"Digitization will impact every industry in the U.S. creating new jobs that require different skills," said Becky Frankiewicz, ManpowerGroup North America President. "Our research shows this is good news for people, provided they are ready to upskill and reskill for a world of work that is more digital and fast paced than ever before. Savvy employers are helping workers succeed by identifying skills adjacencies – those skills that are closely connected and can be adapted to new roles – and by offering people the chance to earn and learn with shorter bursts of on-the-job, experiential training. At ManpowerGroup we're doing just that. Our MyPath program provides people with career guidance and opportunities to learn in-demand skills at no individual cost so they can move up and earn more. We've seen the proof that with the right blend of technical and soft skills, America's workforce will augment rather than compete with technology."
