Kelly Services endorses best practices for recruiting and hiring long-term unemployed
At an event at the White House on Friday, Jan. 31, President Obama announced that more than 300 companies, including Kelly Services, agreed to assist the long-term unemployed. The event also highlighted promising models to connect the long-term unemployed to work and featured the stories of several workers who have benefitted from these programs.
"Kelly Services has numerous success stories in helping the unemployed transition back into the workplace in the same -- or a different -- industry," said Carl T. Camden, president and CEO of Kelly Services. "Staffing firms are a logical gateway to employment as individuals can 'test' a position and company prior to making a commitment. At Kelly, we continue to see a need for employees with the skills and experience in demand today by companies of all sizes."
