    Our corporate sustainability and ESG strategy. 

    Since our founding in 1946, Kelly has embodied the true spirit of corporate sustainability, and we’re committed to the highest standards of corporate citizenship.

    We create shared value by delivering our promise of connecting people to work that enriches their lives while positively impacting the communities where we live and work. Our Corporate Sustainability and ESG approach focuses on this commitment of conducting business responsibly while amplifying our efforts to attract, retain, and provide equitable opportunities for our employees and talent through meaningful work.

    Our Approach

    Our sustainability journey.

    Our Corporate Sustainability and ESG strategy is integrated into Kelly’s Enterprise goals and growth strategy. It is aligned with nine of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and is built on seven core pillars that strategically respond to stakeholder expectations, business risks, and opportunities across environmental, social, and governance issues.



    Kelly is committed to protecting our planet for future generations. We focus on providing safe and sustainable workplaces by mitigating the environmental footprint of our operations, prioritizing energy efficiency, and promoting practices that foster a culture of preservation, conservation, and waste reduction. 



    Kelly strives to connect people to meaningful work opportunities that enrich their lives and contribute to communities where they live and work. We envision a more inclusive and equitable workforce that creates better access, opportunities, fair treatment, and advancement for all people. 



    Kelly is committed to doing the right thing. We conduct ourselves in a legal, ethical, and trustworthy manner—strictly upholding our regulatory obligations in every country in which we operate and complying with both the letter and spirit of our business policies and values. We hold ourselves accountable for our actions and goals. 


    Alignment to Sustainability Reporting Frameworks

    Our dedication to aligning with comprehensive sustainability reporting frameworks highlights our commitment to preserving the environment, ensuring social fairness, and upholding ethical governance. This strategic alignment is more than a corporate responsibility; it is a testament to our resolve to lead by example, navigating the complexities of sustainability challenges with transparency and integrity. Through this commitment, we aim to forge a path toward not only meeting our sustainability goals, but also contributing positively to the broader global agenda, making a tangible difference in the world we share.
