KellyOCG® Named to HRO Today's Baker's Dozen List for Eighth Consecutive Year

TROY, Mich. (August 23, 2011) — The Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) practice of Kelly Outsourcing and Consulting Group (KellyOCG®) has been named by HRO Today magazine in its annual RPO Baker’s Dozen list. Currently in its eighth year, the Baker’s Dozen list ranking has become an industry benchmark recognizing the leading players in the Recruitment Process Outsourcing business globally.

The results of the Baker’s Dozen list are based upon a survey completed by HR executives who are current buyers of RPO services. The RPO providers were rated on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage, and the quality of service provided. The survey was grouped into three lists. The Enterprise Baker’s Dozen list, which has been generated by HRO Today for eight years, lists the top providers in RPO. The magazine also names the top Global Market Leaders and the top Mid-Market and On-Demand Providers.

KellyOCG is one of only four companies to be named to the Enterprise Baker’s Dozen list for the eighth consecutive year. Additionally, KellyOCG is among one of nine RPO providers worldwide included on the Global Market Leaders list.

“The increase in demand for talent acquisition management, recruitment process design and scalability of sourcing functions across the globe, has helped to increase awareness and recognition of the RPO practice of KellyOCG,” said Candy Lewandowski, Vice President and Global Practice Lead for RPO, KellyOCG. “Recognition in the Baker’s Dozen list helps confirm our familiarity and success within this industry.”

“KellyOCG is one of the world’s top RPO firms and once again demonstrates its leadership by being ranked among the very top firms in the RPO industry on the HRO Today RPO Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Survey”, according to Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today magazine. “The KellyOCG organization offers strategically integrated global talent solutions for both permanent and contingent workforce needs. They have distinguished themselves on both the HRO Today RPO and MSP surveys, and continue to demonstrate great market strength and customer service.”
