We fundamentally don’t believe this is right and want to alleviate the cost associated with getting a degree through our partnership with Western International University (West) to deliver the full college tuition coverage program.

MyPath offers work preferences assessment, online job skills training, career tips and insights,and a full college tuition coverage program.  All eligible, actively-assigned associates have the opportunity to earn their first college degree at no cost.

Manpower Employment Outlook Survey (MEOS)

This survey has been running for more than 45 years and is one of the most trusted surveys of employment activity in the world. It is unique in size, scope, longevity and area of focus. The survey is independent and uses a representative sample of employers from throughout the countries where it is conducted (not just ManpowerGroup’s client base or a random Internet panel).

Because of its scope, the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey also provides detailed information about trends in different regions and industry sectors for each of the 39 countries and territories. It has proven to be an accurate predictor of hiring trends, and operates in accordance with the highest standards in market research.
