Expanding Our Technology

Though we were a technology leader in our industry in 1995, we knew that to remain a leader, next- generation technology would need to be developed. As a result, we embarked on a $100 million technology upgrade designed to carry us through the next decade. This technology upgrade includes building a worldwide telecommunications network, installing new hardware and software in our field offices and at headquarters, and upgrading our branch automation systems.

Kelly Scientific Resources' Science Learning Center (SLC) is the scientific staffing industry's only virtual campus providing workplace skills training through the Internet. The SLC offers more than 100 courses and is available to scientists wishing to keep their skills current.

Under the Kelly Services umbrella around the world are a variety of web sites targeted to different specialties. Examples here include sites for IT professionals, lawyers, healthcare workers and engineers.

The Kelly Career Network includes the latest job search technologies as well as automated systems for interfacing with other job-posting sites. By signing up as a preferred candidate, individuals are notified of job postings that meet the candidates' personal profile. More than 100,00 people signed up as registered candidates in the first year.
Tim Karna, a computer operator at one of Kelly's computer centers, checks a network connection. The system allows Kelly to automatically consolidate data for national and global customers.
Computer technician Dennis McDaniel installs new hardware at a Kelly branch. By the end of 2001, all of Kelly's branches will have completely new hardware and software as part of the company's five-year technology upgrade.
