Central Iowa Manpower Franchise Celebrates 65 Years
31 Jul 2018
CELEBRATING 65 YEARS IN THE COMMUNITY Fort Dodge, IA (July 2018) – Sixty-five years ago, Helen Lynch was considered an industry pioneer in Des Moines, opening the 2nd Manpower franchise and blazing trails for both women and Manpower. She had one goal - to help business and people succeed in the communities in which they live and work. Local Note: 28 of those years have included the Fort Dodge location. “We have a mission to improve the skills of people wherever they may be, in whatever part of the world they live. We have a mission to talk to people, to consult with them…advise them and help them get the skills they need to get a job. Our company can be a tremendous instrument for good if in some way we can help make people employable.” - Elmer Winter, Manpower Co-Founder In 2011, David Frederikson partnered with the Lynch family to carry on Helen’s legacy. David opened his first office in Eau Claire, WI in 1978; the first of its kind in the Chippewa Valley area. What started as one office has now grown to 18 locations, in four states, supported by over 80 colleagues, and employing almost 10,000 individuals per year. For 65 years, Manpower has conducted business with the “Doing Well by Doing Good” philosophy in mind. When asked about the company’s 65-year anniversary, David humbly says, “It’s all about the people – our employees, our associates, and our clients. Manpower wouldn’t be what it is today without the power of people. It gives me great pride seeing our company’s philosophy then still hold true today”.
