Diversity Vision, Mission & Commitment Statement | Kelly US
Kelly's Diversity Vision, Mission and Commitment Statement
To first identify diverse/underrepresented (i.e. small, minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, and persons with disabilities) businesses as strategic suppliers and provide development, sustainability, and economic opportunities
Create “real opportunities” for diverse/underrepresented (i.e. small, minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, and persons with disabilities) businesses to add innovation, quality and value as we design and deliver solutions to our customers globally.
Kelly embraces diversity not only as a supplier initiative, but also as part of its corporate culture—encouraged at the highest levels of executive management and apparent in all we do. Supplier Diversity is a key component of our corporate Mission, Vision and Shared Values and an integral part of our global evolution. As supplier diversity continues to evolve in the ever-changing global marketplace, Kelly Services seeks to develop suppliers that have the ability to add significant, long-term value to its supply chain. Our commitment to inclusion is not just measured by our past success, but rather our investment in achieving more today and tomorrow.
To Kelly, supplier diversity development is a crucial component to the company’s overall success. And to remain competitive, advancing and developing diverse suppliers is not only a best practice, it’s a business imperative. Strong partnerships with qualified diverse suppliers is critical to our strategic vision. Developing diverse suppliers into strong, profitable, competitive and long-term partners ensures our success in acquiring the best talent in the market.
Our commitment to supplier diversity has helped us to be recognized as “best-in-class” for our diversity programs within the staffing industry and the greater communities we serve across the globe.
“Kelly is a talent company with a deep sense of purpose: to connect people to work in ways that enrich their lives. We welcome and celebrate the varied backgrounds, talents, ideas, contributions and workstyles of all, and believe that when we embrace and drive a diverse and inclusive environment, we all thrive.
Championing for people to succeed in their work/life journey is how we win in a global, competitive market and how we make an impact on the world. Winning through people includes talent we place, customers we serve, our supplier partners, employees within the Kelly family, and everyone across the globe who interacts with Kelly in some way.”
