Kelly Master Vendor programs deliver...




When you choose a Kelly Master Vendor solution you unlock simple, streamlined processes, fast and simple implementation, and easy on- and offboarding of suppliers and talent. Forget juggling multiple suppliers and complex relationship management, we handle everything.

As master vendor, Kelly fills most orders using our internal network and expertise, subcontracting only niche orders or those with geographical supply challenges to a small network of trusted suppliers. When we use external suppliers, Kelly is accountable for their performance, and we manage all processes and payment.



Increase visibility across your contingent workforce and unlock access to the latest analytics to help you see further.

Gain visibility of 100% of your contingent workforce. We help you to see your contingent workforce more clearly to understand where you are today and plan for tomorrow. We achieve this through powerful analytics and reporting.

  • Operational Reports – Keep track of your day-to-day operations; view workers by site, by role, and by agency.
  • Financial Reports – Review total staffing spend or gather more detail about spend by site, by job title, or by supplier with a breakdown of pay rate/bill rate or margin.
  • Data Integrity Reports – Stay on top of incorrect pay and bill rates, abnormal hours, or timesheets which don’t match up through data integrity reports.
