Mayo signs contract w/ Kelly Services

After almost a year of negotiation, Mayo Clinic signed a three-year contract with Kelly Services in Rochester to provide temporary staffing. The contract, specific to Rochester, went into effect April 1 and runs through March 1, 2008, says Mayo spokeswoman Lisa M. Lucier. However, the Kelly office at 3800 U.S. 52 North has been working Mayo's primary temporary staffing vendor since Jan. 1, 1998 without any formal contract, said Rochester branch manager Kathy Troester. Since they have worked with Mayo for seven years, the Rochester has no need to expand or change to fulfill the contract, Troester said. She estimated that the number of temporary staff members Kelly provides to Mayo runs in the 200 range, though it grows and decreases at different times. The majority of the staffers fill clerical or warehouse jobs, though they also include some professional positions such as, labratory techicians and scientists. The number of total people placed by the Rochester Kelly office places ranges around 350 to 400 temporary employees, she said The office has five employees. Kelly Services is a Fortune 500 company based in Troy, Mich.
