That’s why we’re pleased to announce this new addition to our MyPath offering. Working in partnership with the University of Phoenix we’re helping people develop the skills we know employers need. This is all part of our approach to closing the skills gap, helping people develop sustainable careers for the long term and providing organizations access to a wider pool of right-skilled quality talent.”
The announcement of this partnership with University of Phoenix follows ManpowerGroup’s first global Sustainability Week – celebrating the one year anniversary of its Sustainability Plan: Doing Well By Doing Good.

“We applaud Manpower’s investment in its associates as a commitment to addressing the skills gap felt by many employers and a model for others to follow,” said University of Phoenix President Peter Cohen. “Our partnership with Manpower furthers our shared goal of helping individuals advance out of jobs and into careers. We believe higher education can and should do more for working adults and this partnership is just one example of how we’re living up to that belief.”
