Try before you buy. Try the job. Try the person. Kelly invented the modern temporary staffing business. Kelly started in 1946 as a business with an inventory of business equipment -first calculators, then typewriters, and people who knew how to use them. Kelly first brought its customers' work to its own offices. Then, customers started asking for the people and equipment to come to them. Finally, customers asked for just the people who knew how to operate the company's own equipment, and the temporary staffing business was born.

Today, the four billion dollar firm is a global staffing services provider, with more than 1,800 company owned and operated offices in 25 countries. It has expanded its services far beyond its initial offering of clerical duties to include legal, accounting, light industrial, marketing, and information technology services. This has led to technical challenges. Providing just-in-time service to global companies and ensuring consistency of reporting required an integrated technical environment, just as Y2K was heating up. Kelly solved both problems at the same time. Instead of shelving new development until Y2K was over, they realigned their business processes on a global scale, inventoried and fixed application software, and introduced a risk assessment strategy and risk abatement approach that is now used on all projects.
