Employment - Recruiting - Staffing

A People Company, Staffing the World

Kelly founded the temporary staffing industry in 1946, and has maintained a leadership position through the years based on a valuable premise: we invest in people. Today that focus benefits our customers wherever they operate around the globe - in a growing number of specialized fields. And we’ll continue to meet the evolving challenges of workforce flexibility with staffing solutions tailored to your precise business needs, both locally and worldwide.

As a global leader in providing workforce solutions, Kelly Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB) and its subsidiaries, offer a comprehensive array of outsourcing and consulting services as well as world-class staffing on a temporary, temporary-to-hire, and direct-hire basis. Kelly® has a role in managing employment opportunities for more than one million workers around the globe by employing 550,000 of these individuals directly with the remaining workers engaged through its talent supply chain network of supplier partners. Revenue in 2014 was $5.6 billion.

Corporate Social Responsibility

The term “Corporate Social Responsibility” didn’t exist in 1946.
In 1946 it was called “doing the right thing.”

When William Russell Kelly founded the company, he certainly had a sense of responsibility, but the term “Corporate Social Responsibility” probably wasn’t in his vocabulary. Nor was he aware of the role his company would play in establishing the standards for the then-brand new, professional staffing industry. But the original Kelly Girl brand became a symbol for individual worker empowerment, personal integrity and doing the right thing by both our client partners and our workers.

Today, our CSR policy is very much institutionalized – engrained in and informed by our corporate culture. And so is doing the right thing. We acknowledge that, as leaders on a global scale, we have both the power and the responsibility to make our intentions known and to hold ourselves accountable.

Our Strategic Value

Kelly appreciates the strategic value that workforce suppliers bring to our solutions, so we strive to support your operations collaboratively, and optimize the service we can deliver to mutual customers. This approach lends great advantage to our suppliers, including:

  • Expanded business opportunities – access to an extensive range of projects, allowing for specialization in specific skill categories, geographies, or service delivery
  • Holistic business assistance – a single point of contact for reduced administrative activity, stronger business relationships, risk reduction, and cost savings
  • Speed to market – accelerated on-boarding and consistent business processes, with centralized compliance across multiple programs for faster, efficient operations
  • Proven partnerships – along with basic supplier development, higher-performing suppliers enjoy greater access to new or expanding business, for economy of scale and added market share
