Michelle Nettles
Chief People Officer, ManpowerGroup

Michelle is an impressive people leader with extensive experience in global HR. She’s known for her ability to drive diverse, inclusive cultures for organizations across business units and countries. This made her the perfect fit when she joined ManpowerGroup’s executive leadership team in 2019 as Chief People Officer.

Despite having responsibility for thousands of people, her talent philosophy is about managing individuals based on their unique needs, skills and goals. To Michelle, employees are consumers and an employer’s job is to help them reach their career capacity.  Who wouldn’t want to have a leader like her?

Join FUEL as we spend some time with Michelle learning more about what it takes to lead leaders and help people meet their potential.
