How it began
Brian Campbell joined the United States Army shortly after graduating from high school in 1988. He served on active duty in Europe during the Gulf War performing security missions. Following the completion of his contract Brian remained in Europe to continue working, before moving back to the United States in 2000. For the next seven years, he worked for another major staffing company and helped to form a staffing startup.
After a number of years at the staffing startup, Brian wanted to work for a larger staffing company, and was contacted by Kelly Services from a resume that he posted online. He quickly began working as a Kelly onsite manager for a premier client, a major sportswear and equipment supplier. Around the same time, Brian decided to join the U.S. Army California National Guard. Shortly after starting his new position with Kelly, he was deployed to help fight the San Diego fires in 2007.
Upon his return from San Diego, Brian was able to return to the same position with Kelly, which had since evolved to become a more streamlined and enhanced role. He was now serving as the MSP Manager for the same Kelly customer. Brian was very grateful to still have a job after his short military assignment. He said, “When I signed up for the National Guard, I knew companies were hesitant to hire an employee who has to leave for training and deployment. Kelly supported my choice to be a member of the military.”
One weekend a month and once a year for two weeks, Brian has to attend training for the National Guard. He is a platoon sergeant overseeing 60 soldiers, and much of his free time is taken up with that responsibility. In January 2010 Brian was deployed to Afghanistan, and did not return until March 2011. Despite missing all that time, his job was still there for him when he returned.
Kelly has been very supportive of Brian, and is always ready to make the adjustments needed when he is called to serve our country. Brian enjoys working for Kelly, saying, “Kelly’s management and HR staff have taken away the stress of leaving for military duty with their knowledge of the law and understanding of military requirements—both for active duty and reserves.”
