Monster Worldwide's history, mission and goals

Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:MWW), is a global leader in connecting people to jobs, wherever they are. For more than 20 years, Monster has helped people improve their lives with better jobs, and employers find the best talent. Today, the company offers services in more than 40 countries, providing some of the broadest, most sophisticated job seeking, career management, recruitment and talent management capabilities. Monster continues its pioneering work of transforming the recruiting industry with advanced technology using intelligent digital, social and mobile solutions, including our flagship website monster.com® and a vast array of products and services.

Monster pioneered the business of digital recruiting in 1994, and today we are the only online recruitment provider able to serve our customers on a truly global basis. In addition to our broad portfolio of global Web sites, Monster offers valuable online advertising space on category leading properties such as Military.com and FastWeb.com. These sites deliver a quality audience and the most sought-after consumer demographics to companies looking to showcase their brand to their target audience at key points in their life.

In 2014, Monster unveiled a new strategic approach to include job aggregation, and a deeper expansion into the small business market.

As we continue to seek strategic ways to expand our offerings to employers and seekers, we have taken steps to ensure that we have the processes, technology and infrastructure to deliver the highest level of service and support to our customers. We have deepened our focus on leveraging our multiple distribution channels to further extend our reach into local markets in the United States and beyond. This is evident through Monster's alliances with newspapers in several of the nation’s largest metropolitan markets including New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago and our expanded efforts in social media. These alliances support our commitment to expand the online recruitment market and allow us to serve a higher number of customers and job seekers more efficiently.

Monster's Mission

To help people find better. Not only at work, but in life.

Monster's Promise

Monster pioneered the notion of helping people get more out of work by showing them that a better job was out there.

But the workplace has evolved – people expect more control; people seek more perspective; people crave more enrichment.

And so we've evolved. We've broadened our lens to be more than just a job board.

At Monster, we don't just sell better jobs, we help promote better lives.

Because, in the end, a better job is about much more. A better job is a better experience; an experience that leads to better possibilities, better opportunities, better relationships, better perspectives — all working together to improve life along the way.

So, simply put, our mission is to inspire people to improve their lives.

Monster's Values

One Monster, Indivisible

We are a global organization of diverse people and audiences. But we will succeed when we act as one. One group of highly motivated, totally accountable individuals unified in our vision and actions.

Before Us, the Customer

Our organization's lifeblood is our customers and our consumers. Without them, there is no us. We will measure their satisfaction and loyalty and we will treat them as though our professional lives depend on them.

Do the Right Thing

Every decision and action is an opportunity to demonstrate our collective integrity. In that spirit, we will live up to all of our values. We will not tolerate unethical behavior. And we will support each other by doing what's right.

Innovate Relentlessly

As a technology-enabled enterprise, we must drive innovation in order to grow and to prevent others from copying our success. To that end, we will question the status quo, we will think big and we will innovate through the lens of our customers and consumers. And we will be relentless in execution to make innovative thinking a reality.

Excellence, Served Daily

We will reach our potential as an organization when we agree that good isn't good enough. In order to deliver excellence daily, we will drive continuous improvement, benchmark and implement best practices, execute sharply against goals and reward outstanding performance.

Do Well by Doing Good

We will strive to improve both the lives of our people and the communities in which we do business. We will respect people. We will embrace diversity. We will invest in our people to help them succeed. We will give back to the community. And we will be socially and environmentally responsible corporate citizens.
