          Manpower Inc. to Acquire Right Management Consultants, Inc.
                 to Expand its Continuum of Employment Services

MILWAUKEE, WI, USA, December 10, 2003 - Manpower Inc. (NYSE: MAN), a world
leader in the staffing industry, announced today that it has entered into an
agreement to acquire Right Management Consultants, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the largest
career transition and organizational consulting services provider in the world.
Subject to certain adjustments described below, the value of the consideration
for each outstanding share of Right common stock would be $18.75, for a total
transaction value of approximately $488 million, including the value of stock

         "The acquisition of Right is an exciting and compelling opportunity for
us to expand the range of services that we provide to our customers around the
world in a direction that is consistent with our business strategy, and where
customer demand is growing," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, Chairman & CEO of Manpower
Inc. "We are listening to our customers and setting the new global standard for
the role of employment services providers, serving our clients as their
strategic partner throughout every stage of the employment life cycle. Right has
an outstanding management team that will enable us to take another key step
toward reaching this vision," Joerres added.

         Richard J. Pinola, Chairman & CEO of Right Management Consultants, Inc.
said, "We are excited to be joining the Manpower family where we can continue to
grow our business around the world and leverage the strengths of both companies
to meet the needs of our customers. Our corporate values and business
philosophies are extremely well aligned, and I feel confident this will be a
winning combination for our employees, our shareholders and our clients."

         Right generated revenues of $344 million and net income of $31 million
through the third quarter of 2003 and is expected to generate total 2003 annual
revenues of approximately $450 million and net income of approximately $41

         Pinola added, "Our management team is committed to working with
Manpower and building upon the foundation we have set in place to provide an
enhanced range of services to our mutual clients."

         Manpower developed an organizational consulting business, The Empower
Group, in 2000, which today operates through 19 offices in 11 countries. This
operating unit will be merged into Right after the acquisition is completed.
Rich Pinola will continue as President and CEO of Right Management Consultants,
reporting to Jeff Joerres.

Conference Call and Webcast

Manpower and Right will discuss the acquisition plans in a live Webcast on
Thursday, December 11 at 8:30 a.m. EST (7:30 a.m. CST), which can be accessed on
Manpower's Web site at or on Right's Web site at under the section for "investors." The Webcast will be available

About the Transaction

Manpower expects to commence an exchange offer shortly. Each share of Right
common stock tendered in the exchange offer will be exchanged for a number of
shares of Manpower common stock equal to $18.75 divided by the average trading
price of Manpower's common stock during the ten trading days ending on and
including the second trading day prior to the closing of the exchange offer.
Based on the closing price of $45.23 for Manpower's common stock on December 10,
2003, the exchange rate would equal 0.4145 shares of Manpower common stock for
each share of Right common stock. Pursuant to the agreement, this exchange rate
will not be greater than 0.4497, nor less than 0.3680. If the average trading
price is less than $37.80, Right may terminate the agreement, unless Manpower
exercises its option to issue an additional number of its shares such that the
total number of shares of Manpower common stock exchanged for each share of
Right common stock multiplied by the average trading price is equal to $17.00.

Upon completion of the exchange offer, any remaining shares of Right common
stock will be acquired in a second-step merger.

The transaction is expected to be tax-free to Right shareholders, except to the
extent a shareholder receives cash for fractional shares.

The transaction is subject to regulatory review and customary closing
