Temporary Staffing

From pioneer to leader

In the 1940s, the concept of temporary staffing began as a simple idea in one man's head.  Unheard of at the time was what William Russell Kelly was doing: hiring people on his own and sending them to outside companies to do a variety of office tasks.

Since no one had a name for this service, Mr. Kelly called it “temporary help". And in those early days, our employees were referred to as Kelly Girls.

For more than 65 years, Kelly Services has provided businesses with highly qualified professionals to fill short and long-term temporary and contract positions. Kelly places temporary employees with premier companies around the world, including more than 90% of the Fortune 100™ and Fortune 500® as well as small to mid-sized corporations full of growth potential.
