At a ceremony in Hong Kong this week, ManpowerGroup was named Most Valuable Company in Executive Recruitment by Mediazone Group. And at the recent Thomson Reuters Recruitment Excellence Awards in Australia, ManpowerGroup was awarded Best Multi-National Agency of the Year for the second year running.
"We are proud to be valued for the talent we connect with our clients and with the high-impact solutions we create that enable our clients to achieve their business goals and enhance their competitiveness," said Lancy Chui, ManpowerGroup Managing Director of Hong Kong, Macau and Vietnam.
ManpowerGroup secured the Hong Kong award for its achievements in serving Hong Kong and other China regions, and for the professional quality of its services. ManpowerGroup's emphasis on ethical best practices continues to gain recognition worldwide.
ManpowerGroup received the Australia award for driving excellence, innovation and professionalism within the local recruitment industry. It's also a testament to ManpowerGroup's strengths in leveraging its global capabilities to connect talent with local businesses.
"We became the leader in workforce solutions by staying ahead of the curve and adapting to a fast-changing market," said Lincoln Crawley, ManpowerGroup Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand. "Complex challenges in the recruitment industry demand the sophisticated solutions only provided through our Right Management, Manpower and Experis brands, and with outcome-based offerings through ManpowerGroup Solutions."
To meet the Asia-Pacific region's growth projections, growing businesses must scale flexible workforce models, but are challenged in finding workers with the right skills. The Fourth Quarter 2011 Manpower Employment Outlook Survey reveals that demand for talent in this region continues to outpace other world regions, while ManpowerGroup's 2011 Talent Shortage Survey reveals that 45 percent of Asia-Pacific employers struggle to find the talent they need.

"We have a unique ability to drive collaboration across our brands, helping us deliver what our clients and candidates need to win in the Human Age," said Darryl Green, ManpowerGroup President Asia-Pacific and Middle East. "In-demand talent in the Asia-Pacific is more displaced and in critical need than ever, forcing employers to both look beyond domestic borders and create new work models."
ManpowerGroup's Asia-Pacific business has grown dramatically, with the recent rollout of partnerships across inland China that will enable the country to build out its industrial sector. In the last two years, the number of ManpowerGroup associates on daily assignment in China has risen from 15,000 to 125,000. ManpowerGroup now operates in more than 90 offices across China.
