MILWAUKEE, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup Solutions' managed service provider (MSP), TAPFIN, the world's largest vendor-neutral and hybrid MSP, received the ACCOLADE AWARD from the Wisconsin Department of Administration. The ACCOLADE AWARD recognizes the State of Wisconsin's private sector partners that have demonstrated superior minority involvement in state procurement and construction-related activities.


"The State of Wisconsin is pleased to present this award to TAPFIN who has managed, coached and trained many Wisconsin certified minority businesses, which has resulted in more than 14 percent minority business enterprise participation on this contract," said Mike Huebsch, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Administration. "We are proud to recognize TAPFIN for their exceptional performance and partnerships with minority owned businesses."

Since 2005, TAPFIN has had primary responsibility for managing the State of Wisconsin's IT services contract MSP program. MSP programs oversee management and responsibility of contingent workforce programs according to guidelines established by clients. TAPFIN consistently exceeds the state's 5 percent minority purchase goal, partnering with minority owned businesses for more than 14 percent of the contingent IT services delivered to the state. In addition, TAPFIN supports its minority-owned business partners through a robust mentoring program that includes business and leadership development opportunities.

"TAPFIN is committed to supplier diversity because it improves the quality of the services we provide, and it more accurately reflects the mix of resources in the market," said Kip Wright, senior vice president, ManpowerGroup Solutions and member of the ManpowerGroup supplier diversity executive steering committee. "We are proud of the innovative workforce solutions we deliver to the State of Wisconsin in partnership with minority owned businesses. Through our collaborative efforts, we are contributing to more business growth and expansion, which strengthens the economic health of Wisconsin."

The Department of Administration presented the ACCOLADE AWARDS at the Business Opportunities in the Government Sector workshop on April 16, 2013, at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wis. TAPFIN was one of three companies receiving the award and the sole honoree in the general procurement category.

TAPFIN parent company ManpowerGroup considers diversity in the workplace an essential component of business success and works toward enhancing diversity in all aspects of the organization. ManpowerGroup's commitment to diversity was recently recognized by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). For the fifth consecutive year, ManpowerGroup was named one of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs). This is the only national award honoring corporations for world class programs that level the playing field for WBEs to compete for corporate business. ManpowerGroup was one of just 32 corporations receiving the award, and one of only three to receive the award five times.
