ManpowerGroup Helps Launch The Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking





NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, formally announced at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City today that it has partnered with eight other global companies to form the Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking, which provides businesses with tools designed to end all forms of human trafficking.

"Fully engaging the corporate community is a critical step in the war to end modern-day slavery," said David Arkless, ManpowerGroup's President of Global Corporate and Government Affairs and gBCAT co-chair. "Human trafficking is a global problem which can only be eradicated by mobilizing global solutions. Corporations need to take action, get involved and become part of the solution."

gBCAT will work to mobilize the expertise, resources and voices of coalition members to abolish human trafficking across industries. Founding members include: Carlson, Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, ExxonMobil, LexisNexis, ManpowerGroup, Microsoft, NXP and Travelport. These members are committed to assisting to eradicate trafficking in supply chains where incidences of forced labor may be currently undetectable. More than 21 million slaves exist in the world today, according to the International Labor Organization.

At the Clinton meeting today, President Barack Obama spoke out against human trafficking and cited gBCAT. Ending human trafficking "is one of the great human rights causes of our time," the President said.

As a thought leaders' forum, gBCAT will develop and share best practices for preventing traffickers for entering a company's operations. gBCAT will pursue training modules for employees and general awareness-raising among consumers, suppliers and partners. gBCAT members will also continue collaborating with governments, NGOs and the general public to build out the cross-sector solutions which are necessary to eliminate all forms of modern slavery. 

ManpowerGroup has tirelessly worked for years through partner organizations such as Polaris, Verite, End Human Trafficking Now! and the U.S. Department of State to broaden the business world's awareness of how traffickers can take over a supply chain.
