Kelly Services Recognized Among Nation's "Top Military Spouse-Friendly Employers"

Global HR Solutions Provider Offers Career Opportunities to More Than One Million Spouses of Active Duty and Reserve Troops

TROY, MI--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - What do an associate research scientist, a staffing supervisor and a bank document custody representative have in common? All are military spouses that found employment opportunities through Kelly Services (NASDAQ: KELYA) (NASDAQ: KELYB).

Recently recognized by Military Spouse magazine as one of the "Top 10 Military Spouse-Friendly Employers," Kelly was among a distinguished list of national corporations that strive to offer flexible workforce options to military spouses.

"Relocation can be an overwhelming experience. The thought of having to start all over, especially with regard to a career, can be very intimidating," said Jocelyn Lincoln, senior director, Americas Marketing Group for Kelly Services. "Kelly recognizes the value military spouses bring to the workforce and offers military spouses flexible, portable career opportunities that can help reduce some of the obstacles that can accompany frequent moves."

Just two months out of college, a family member suggested that Sarah Tomlin consider Kelly for employment opportunities. The day after she visited a local branch, she was placed with an international pharmaceutical company.

"For military spouses, Kelly is the perfect option. They offer their employees the flexibility to go places, opportunities to gather experience and access to challenging positions with great companies nationwide," said Tomlin.

Wanting to work for a company with multiple locations so that relocating with her Navy husband would allow her to already have a 'foot-in-the-door,' Kate Busse came to Kelly and ended up working for the local branch she visited.

"I was working for Kelly for more than a year when my husband was transferred to a new location. Through Kelly, I was able to relocate to a new branch location and continue doing what I love," said Busse. "I am confident that the next time we have to move, I will find an opportunity through Kelly wherever in the world that may be."

In need of a full-time job, Jamie Lefebvre came to Kelly and ended up on assignment for a leading commercial bank in the United States. While the customer has offered to hire her permanently, Lefebvre opts to remain with Kelly because of the unpredictable nature of her husband's military career.

"Kelly has a presence in all 50 states, so they're able to offer career opportunities wherever you may be," said Lefebvre. "They'll work with you to find a position that not only fits your needs, but also fits your lifestyle."
