A Message from Joe Kelly, Chief of Staff, Office of Human Resources
The Office of Human Resources (OHR) has decided to broaden the approach to temporary staffing at the University and is pleased to announce the award of the temporary clerical services contract to two vendors, Adecco Employment Services and Kelly Services. These two vendors were selected through the University's competitive bid process, as we determined that both vendors closely met the needs of the University based on service delivery, cost, and a commitment to the University's targeted business initiative.
The goal of this bidding process was to enhance the options available to units for accessing temporary services, as well as to ensure competitive pricing, high quality placements, and a commitment to service. By awarding the contract to more than one vendor, we hope to minimize the use of services outside of this temporary services contract. We have a strong and established relationship with Adecco, and we are confident that we can build an equally beneficial partnership with Kelly Services, who will bring a new, fresh perspective to temporary staffing at the University.
We are in the process of implementing the new contract, and will be updating the OHR Manager's toolkit hiring web pages to reflect the contact information for the two vendors. We are confident that the new dual-vendor approach will be an effective solution in meeting your temporary clerical staffing needs.
