ManpowerGroup Marks World Refugee Day on 60th Anniversary of UNHCR Refugee Convention

ManpowerGroup is observing World Refugee Day, the 60th anniversary of the founding of the UN refugee convention, to help unleash the human potential of people forced to flee their homes due to persecution, conflict or economic hardship.

“In many cases, they have lost everything and it is vitally important we make a stand for individual refugees to help them develop the marketable skills they need and tap into the passion, creativity, and innovation of their inner human potential.” said David Arkless, ManpowerGroup President of Corporate and Government Affairs. Through partnerships with refugee agencies worldwide, ManpowerGroup helps simplify integration processes for refugees working toward self-sufficiency by providing skills training and connecting them to sustainable jobs.
