TROY, MI--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - Kelly Services today announced that it has been designated as one of 25 companies named to the Military Friendly Spouse Employers® list by Military Spouse magazine. The sixth annual list recognizes companies that hire spouses of active duty service members and make an effort to develop workforce development policies that acknowledge the unique challenges of military life.
Kelly®, a company that has been actively working with veterans and their families since the company's founding in 1946, was recognized for its forward looking policies that support the unique employment needs of military spouses. Kelly has established key partnerships with many organizations to match the talented men and women of the military -- and their spouses -- with the right employment opportunity.
"At Kelly, we go beyond just providing employment opportunities," said Jocelyn Lincoln, Vice President of Americas Recruiting for Kelly Services. "We work with individual military programs across the country to help them understand civilian corporations and the ever-evolving workplace of today. Kelly has a strong belief in enriching people's lives with career opportunities that change them for the better."
The annual list was compiled from data collected by Military Spouse's sister magazine G.I. Jobs. G.I. Jobs surveys companies across the nation to find out which ones really are the best places for people transitioning out of the military to find great civilian jobs. G.I. Jobs considered job-hunting military spouses when they distributed the Military Friendly Employers® list survey. The survey contained questions that addressed spouses' biggest concerns, which included flexibility when their spouse is deployed and opportunities for continued employment and advancement in the midst of frequent moves.
