Who We Are

Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW) is the parent company of Monster.com, the premier global online employment solution for people seeking jobs and the employers who need great people. We've been doing this for over ten years, and have expanded from our roots as a "job board" to a global provider of a full array of job seeking, career management, recruitment and talent management products and services. At the heart of our success and our future is innovation: we are changing the way people think about work, and we're helping them actively improve their lives and their workforce performance with new technology, tools and practices.

A bit more about us: global expansion, our many online properties, and products and services highlights.

Monster pioneered the business of digital recruiting in 1994, and today we are the only online recruitment provider able to service customers on a truly global basis. Monster Worldwide has an unparalleled international reach with a presence in approximately 50 countries around the world. To enhance our penetration of the Asia-Pacific region, we partnered with News Limited in an online career site (CareerOne) for the Australian market.

In addition, through our broad portfolio of Web sites, Monster Worldwide offers valuable online advertising space on category leading properties such as Military.com, FastWeb.com, Admissions.com and the network of vertical community sites developed by our Affinity Labs division. 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.

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. This is evident through Monster's strategic alliances with newspapers in several of the nation’s largest metropolitan markets including New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago. Our alliances support our commitment to expand the online recruitment market and allow us to serve more customers and job seekers effectively and efficiently.

In January 2009, Monster unveiled a re-launched Web site offering enhanced resources for seekers and employers. The new site features an unprecedented investment in development and technology and offers new tools and resources to help people realize their life improvement goals. Through the creation of new products and services such as Monster Career Mapping, Monster Career Snapshots and Monster Career Benchmarking, we continue to improve the seeker experience while also developing deeper relationships with our employer customers.

Monster's Mission

To inspire people to improve their lives.

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. And helping them find it at Monster.

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 marketplace for jobs.

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

Because, in the end, a better job is much more than just that. 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.

We will know we've succeeded when our customers have succeeded at living more rewarding, fulfilled and improved 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.
