TROY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 31, 2007 --

WHAT:     Advance comment on the unemployment rate announcement provided
          by global staffing company Kelly Services.

WHO:      Carl Camden, president and chief executive officer,
          Kelly Services.

DETAILS:  The following commentary is offered in advance of the January
          unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S.
          Department of Labor:

          "Despite a pause in economic growth, several positive indicators
          confirm that there is underlying strength in the U.S. economy.
          For the first time in three years, the rate of inflation is on
          the decline.  And amid an economic slowdown, the labor market
          remains tight.

          "Technical industries, particularly information technology and
          engineering, are experiencing robust job growth.  Continued
          demand for credentialed professionals in these industries is
          expected.  The manufacturing sector is showing signs of
          improvement after months of inactivity.

          "Temporary job creation has been somewhat sluggish in recent
          months, but we believe this will be a short-term occurrence.

          "Overall, job creation remains positive and economic
          expectations point to moderate, but sustainable GDP growth
          in 2007."

WHEN:     Carl Camden is available Friday, Feb. 2, for media interviews
          through the contact information listed below.
