Durham, NC (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
Futures Inc. today announced a partnership with Kelly Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: KELYA, KELYB), a leading workforce solutions company. Utilizing the US Military Pipeline platform, a cloud-based military talent exchange developed by Futures, Kelly® is able to offer an enhanced military recruiting program for both military job seekers and employers.
Kelly’s targeted military recruiting program, Kelly Veteran Employment & Transition Services (KVETS) recruits veterans in all stages of transition, by aligning their military skills and experience to customer defined requirements, and then places these individuals without geographic or industry constraints.
US Military Pipeline, the platform behind H2H.jobs, allows Kelly Services to create ideal candidate profiles and find the best candidates through a unique skills matching model. The model uses skills latticing technology to translate a job seeker’s military experience, as represented in the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) code, along with other skills, training and credentials, and matches that experience to civilian job requirements. Through this translation and matching process, Kelly Services can quickly identify the best candidates and match them to appropriate employment opportunities within Kelly’s customer base.
“Kelly Services has a long history of successfully recruiting military personnel and their spouses across the United States, and recognizes the value this highly-skilled, highly-trained and experienced talent pool brings to the workforce,” said Chris Walker, veteran recruitment liaison for Kelly Services. “By utilizing the Futures’ talent matching technology, Kelly is able to align military skills and experience to the needs of our customers more effectively.”
Futures CEO Geoff Cramer emphasized that, “We are honored to be selected by a team that is so committed to veteran employment. Kelly Services is leading the way in helping to connect over 3 million unemployed and underemployed military personnel to rewarding jobs.”
