We believe meaningful and sustainable employment has the power to change the world. Every day, we connect people to work across a wide range of skills and industries. By respecting human rights and promoting fair employment practices, we can ensure that work is a source of dignity and purpose. And by helping people develop skills and experience, we enable them to achieve their career goals.
As an industry leader we set high standards for ourselves and others. We are guided in everything we do by our Values https://manpower.ru/en/about-us/mission-and-values.html and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics https://www.manpowergroup.com/ethics/code-of-business-conduct-and-ethics, as well as the United Nations Global Compact Principles, the quality standards of our industry and all applicable laws and regulations.
ManpowerGroup Russia & CIS follows all the labour law legislative requirements including but not limited to non-discrimination, working with labor unions, etc. All the requirements regarding labour safety, recruitment rules, diversity and non-discrimination are established in Labour Code of Russian Federation (http://www.consultant.ru/document/cons_doc_LAW_34683/) and obligatory for all employers.
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics highlights our respect for individuals and our shared obligation to ensure fairness in the hiring and advancement of all employees without discrimination. It also outlines our mutual responsibility for maintaining safe and respectful workplaces that are free from abusive or unprofessional conduct. All of our employees complete annual training on the Code.
We ensure that our people know how to report concerns without fear of retaliation, and provide a Global Ethics Hotline https://manpower.ru/about-us/mission-and-values/compliance-hotline.html
We maintain a zero tolerance policy on working with any entity that benefits from human trafficking, forced labor or modern slavery of any kind.
We cascade these principles to our suppliers through our Supplier Code of Conduct https://www.manpowergroup.com/sustainability/policies-guidelines/procurement-and-supply-chain

The health and safety of our people is of critical importance. Our risk managers evaluate clients’ worksites prior to placing individuals on assignment.

Moreover, ManpowerGroup Russia & CIS provides labour safety services for the clients. In pandemic circumstances such type of services is particularly important. We help our clients to reduce losses from accidents and payments for benefits and compensation, to minimize risk of suspension of the organization's activities and disqualification of managers, etc.
We ensure that everyone in our organization has ready access to development opportunities through on-the-job learning, stretch assignments, coaching and regular performance assessments.

Diversity is a key enabler of our strategic business goals. We are committed to creating an organization where we recognize and value each person’s unique strengths and perspectives. A majority of our employees are women, and we aspire for our leadership to reflect that diversity as well.
Every year we invite all our employees to participate in the ManpowerGroup Annual People Survey, asking them to give us feedback on a range of topics including leadership, ethics and values, culture, diversity, development opportunities, as well as overall engagement. Anonymized results are shared with leaders and managers at all levels, along with tools to help them discuss the results and develop action plans with their teams.
