TROY, Mich., April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kelly Services, Inc., (Nasdaq: KELYA, KELYB), a global leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced the launch of its Human Cloud platform aggregator, a first-of-its-kind solution that delivers a curated pipeline of highly skilled, niche talent through one easy-to-use interface.
Launch partners include freelance work platforms Business Talent Group (BTG), Toptal, The Mom Project and 99designs.
The Kelly Human Cloud uses a company’s pre-existing Managed Service Provider (MSP) to integrate with freelance work platforms. Through a single user interface, it aggregates leading human cloud platforms based on a customer’s talent needs for skill sets such as strategy and analytics, operations and organizational effectiveness, corporate finance, project management, marketing and web development to name a few. It provides a faster and more cost-efficient hiring solution by helping companies avoid a piecemeal approach to searching separate platforms for talent. This helps improve process compliance, and creates a better experience for workers and a company’s human resources department.
“HR professionals across the country are under pressure to find highly skilled talent from new and diverse pipelines. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing unusual volatility in the labor market, we believe the Human Cloud can play a role placing niche talent into different business functions in a remote work setting,” said Tammy Browning, senior vice president, Global Operations for KellyOCG. “The Kelly Human Cloud centralizes and standardizes the various platforms used by on-demand talent and manages the entire hiring process from connecting HR with talent, to defining the scope of the job and getting people to work.”
“We are pleased to team up with Kelly to help clients more seamlessly access the best independent business talent on demand. Through our partnership with Kelly, companies will be able to bring in highly skilled, niche talent like project managers, subject-matter experts, interim executives, and consultants through qualified channels in a unique easy-to-use format,” said Jody Greenstone Miller, co-founder, co-CEO and chairman of BTG. “Kelly continues to innovate to meet the needs of both independent talent and clients.”
“The Kelly Human Cloud is an incredibly valuable tool in our mission to help women remain active in the workforce throughout their career journey,” said Allison Robinson, CEO and Founder of The Mom Project. “Kelly understands that in a world fighting for high quality talent, women should not have to choose between their careers and being a parent. This platform will help further connect women to a variety of roles with employers who are committed to designing a better workplace, fundamentally impacting the future of work.”
Kelly’s Human Cloud is an important part of an organization’s Total Talent Management solution that provides clients holistic support across multiple channels. Permanent hires, project based talent solutions and other niche needs are all part of today’s workforce demands. Kelly provides HR teams full visibility and management of these varied channels. In addition, Kelly’s expertise can provide analytics and industry best practices on sourcing, supporting and nurturing talent communities.
