A recruitment company with a difference

In 1946, William Russell Kelly opened Kelly Services from a small office in Detroit, Michigan. He began with two employees and the vision to treat every customer like the only customer. William Russell Kelly was a pioneer and helped shape the way for the modern staffing industry as we know it today.

More than six decades later the company philosophy of treating every customer like the only customer is alive in everything we do and is just one of the reasons Kelly has emerged as the most trusted and respected name in workforce management solutions.  For corporate-wide information please visit our global information area at KellyServices.com.
