MILWAUKEE, Aug. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: MAN) - The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) has recognized two of ManpowerGroup's directors - Edward Zore and Roberto Mendoza - in the 2017 NACD Directorship 100 list of Most Influential Leaders in Boardrooms and in Corporate Governance.
ManpowerGroup is one of only five companies across all industries to have two directors named in the Directorship 100. This coveted achievement by Zore and Mendoza builds on ManpowerGroup's position as a World's Most Ethical and Most Admired Company - the only company in the industry to be named to both lists.
"On behalf of the rest of the Board, our Executive Leadership team and all of our colleagues, I want to congratulate both Ed and Roberto for being recognized for their commitment to Doing Well by Doing Good with these impressive industry leading accolades," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO. "Our business is driven by our clear purpose - we believe meaningful and sustainable work has the power to change the world. We set the highest ethical standards and this strong purpose runs throughout our organization. Our Board and our leaders set the tone and every person in the company plays an important role. Having leaders like Ed and Roberto serving on our Board is crucial in helping us keep standards high in order to run an industry-leading, successful, purposeful and transparent business."
The NACD has additionally recognized ManpowerGroup's commitment to its sustainability strategy. In its Directorship magazine this month, NACD calls out ManpowerGroup's sustainability plan, and how Prising emphasized sustainability and talent in his annual letter to shareholders.
Edward Zore has been a member of the ManpowerGroup Board of Directors since 2000 and Roberto Mendoza since 2009.
NACD's annual list recognizes the leading corporate directors, corporate-governance experts, policymakers and influencers who significantly impact boardroom practices and performance. Nominees are evaluated in four key categories: integrity, mature confidence, informed judgement, and high performance standards. They are evaluated by an independent selection committee across their personal history of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in line with NACD principles.
