    Our sustainability journey.

    Through our programs and initiatives, we seek to improve the quality of life of our employees, their families, as well as the communities in which they operate. Our strategy is built upon six key pillars and aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).



    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. 


    Materiality—analysis of our stakeholders’ perception.

    Our Corporate Sustainability and ESG strategy is anchored in a formal materiality assessment that analyzes the relevance of stakeholders, the severity of risk, and the impact of ESG issues on our business success. In 2021, we conducted our second materiality assessment with key stakeholders to validate and prioritize significant ESG issues, allowing us to define performance indicators and initiatives within our sustainability strategy and ESG reporting.
