“Seeing people succeed at work and beyond, and playing a small part in nurturing the professional development of others, brings me tremendous joy.”
Amy Bouque has a passion for empowering people to thrive at work and in life. As chief human resources officer for Kelly®, a global leader in providing strategic workforce solutions and connecting talented people to great companies, she does exactly that.
Amy leads the human resources practices for the more than 7,000 internal full-time Kelly employees around the world. She views their dedication to connecting people of all backgrounds with work that enriches their lives as a truly noble cause. Describing herself as an ally to all people, Amy strives to accelerate the success of the corporate Kelly team through transformative HR initiatives that help employees find their purpose through meaningful work.
Citing empowerment, inclusion and compassion as guiding principles, Amy says it is a privilege to be a people leader at a talent-focused organization that embraces the full humanity of all workers and supports all workstyles. She joined Kelly from Ally Financial Inc., where she shaped Ally’s human capital strategy during her 12-year tenure and most recently served as executive director of talent management. Amy stepped into her role at Kelly with the firm belief that its employees, clients and talent customers can only thrive together.
Amy’s passion for helping people succeed extends beyond the business. She is equally committed to lifting up her community, currently serving as board president and founding member of Impact100 Metro Detroit, a women’s collective giving organization that awards high-impact grants to local nonprofit heroes.
Amy holds degrees from both Michigan State University and Wayne State University. With both kids off to college, Amy is currently discovering her new normal as an empty nester. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, hiking, kayaking and sitting at a bonfire with a glass of red wine.
