KellyOCG(R) Partners with PeopleTicker to Expand Market Data in their Talent Supply Chain Analytics Portal

TROY, Mich. – January 20, 2015- KellyOCG(R), the outsourcing and consulting group of Kelly Services (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB) today announced a partnership with PeopleTicker, that will make PeopleTicker neutral market rate data available to KellyOCG clients.

During the first quarter of the year, PeopleTicker’s neutral market rate data will be added to the KellyOCG Talent Supply Chain Analytics portal. The portal is one of the tools KellyOCG uses to assist companies in gleaning value from big data. That knowledge is then paired with proven talent supply chain management principles to develop holistic workforce management strategies used by companies to manage their workforce more efficiently.

“By integrating PeopleTicker’s neutral rate information with our Talent Supply Chain Analytics portal, clients can now truly fine tune their benchmark data and predict the impact of rate adjustments, taking into consideration the impact to cycle time and quality,” said Tom Tisdale, Vice President, KellyOCG.

Significant value can be realized from PeopleTicker’s neutral market rate data because of its scope of statistically valid data for similar jobs with varying definitions. The cost of labor can vary greatly in these cases because rates are dependent on job definitions, experience, and professional skills. By integrating this data with the benchmarking analytics in the KellyOCG portal, clients can benefit from a more focused analysis of their talent spend and the correlating return on investment.

“We are thrilled to be part of KellyOCG’s Talent Supply Chain Analytics portal – by far, the market leading analytical solution addressing the optimization of managing and acquiring temporary and permanent talent,” said Joe Musacchio, Chief Executive Officer of PeopleTicker.

“Incorporating PeopleTicker’s neutral market rate data with KellyOCG’s talent supply chain knowledge, will bring procurement best practices to self-managed vendor management systems, managed services providers, and staffing companies. These advanced efficiencies will help companies to achieve their spend management goals, reduce time to fill, and decrease turnover,” added Musacchio.
