Current CEO: Carl T. Camden
In 1946, William Russell Kelly made the decision to go into business for himself. The business model that he envisioned was hiring workers within his own office that provided essential office services for other companies. After learning that these companies preferred to have temporary workers come into their own locations to complete the work, Mr. Kelly decided to shift the focus of the business. Women that wished to enter the workforce on a temporary basis found these types of assignments beneficial toward their lifestyle. As such, the majority of Kelly’s employees were females, which in turn inspired the name of the company, Kelly Girl Service. This term continued to exist until the mid-1960s when the variety of assignments opened to a number of different areas and led to the name change to Kelly Services Inc.
The usefulness that many companies found in hiring temporary workers to complete additional jobs within their businesses allowed Kelly Services to become in high demand. Kelly Services careers run the gamut from Administrative, Information Technology to Business Development. If an organization has a need for qualified workers on a temporary basis, chances are likely that Kelly Services will have the right person for the position. This has resulted in a win-win situation for both businesses and professionals seeking a flexible work environment.
Working at Kelly Services provides a number of advantages that cannot be found in regular full time employment. Not only do these assignments allow a level of flexibility that cannot be found in the modern corporate job, but they provide excellent opportunities to utilize a variety of skill sets. The Kelly Services culture is the perfect setting for a younger person looking to try out a specific career area, a mid-career professional looking to experience different work environments or an older worker simply seeking to supplement their income. With the support of the administration and guidance in finding suitable work assignments, a job with Kelly Services is more than just a way to earn money.
Kelly Services benefits allow the employee to choose assignments that best fit their lifestyle. This free agent approach toward finding employment opportunities has assisted a number of people in finding satisfying work environments. With individual consultation and guidance on finding appropriate training opportunities to quality for work that interests each person, each Kelly Services location is committed to pleasing both their clients and workforce.
