It started in 1946 offering only female clerical help but has expanded to include light industrial, technical, and professional employees of both sexes. It places information technology people, engineers, accountants, lawyers, scientists, substitute teachers, and medical staff.[1]

In 2011, Kelly Services reported $5,551,000,000 in total revenues.[2]
