Thread regarding Kelly Services Inc. layoffs

Deb Thorpe & Peter Quigley don’t get it

The company had the right idea in concept. We had managers and VP’s who oversaw regions with zero growth for many years. They had to reduce the levels between the C-suite and the customer.

The only problem is that the system they put in place was even more ill-conceived than the old system. The wrong people are in the wrong roles. Engagement is a joke and a total waste of money and resources.

Deb and Peter jumped into this without any understanding of US Field Ops. When a company engages in such a radical transformation, it had better understand how the company functions, and it had better put leaders in place who inspire confidence.

These two have absolutely no clue, and they couldn’t inspire a bear to sh– in the woods. Teresa Carroll was an infinitely better leader than Deb and Peter who are now leading us on a death march over a cliff. If one thing is true about Kelly, it’s that poor leaders always find their way to the top.

Deb fired me because I was a single mother of a toddler. Literally-the only reason. She asked me if I had kids and then told me how children interfere with people’s ability to work in my role and her dislike of children as a whole. She came to town sat on her high horse had me drive her all over and yelled at me like a lunatic because I made a wrong turn and had to correct it. She then demanded that I drive her to the airport when the day was done. Total nut bag. I was fired within 2 weeks of her visit.
And I wasn’t the only single mom she fired.

Chad Miller has been a one man wrecking ball in every job he has ever had at Kelly. The one thing he is really good at is Kissing a–, but that could be said for everyone in Kelly Leadership.

Deb Thorpe always was walking cluster f—. She is responsible for brining back Tami Browning (who is not a High School Graduate). Everything Tami touches turns to sh–. Just look at the Carnage she left at YOH.

Funny to see Dan Turners name.
I wonder if his wife knows how many times he's cheated on her?
Dan loves to spout off data points, that no one else seems to have.

Old Hugo over there in STEM, he ran CDI into ground.

anyone seeing a trend yet ?

Rumor is it that there will be a shakeup of the current BU leads - so badly needed. I don’t know if they have more than two aligned as successors but Soares and Browning need to go. Need a new head of communications and marketing to support the change. CMO has grown complacent. Both completely clueless how to transform the organization - my guess is sell off for spare parts???

Don’t forget the other mo–n of all Dan Tuner ! A general and a bully. Who destroys relationships every where he goes.

Chad Miller is incompetent as a VP. As a previous client, Kelly appears to be crumbling under his guidance. I hear horror stories from other employees. Others have questioned if he even as a college degree. All I know is my company was recently affected by an agreement held on his end for weeks. We don’t have the talent we need but a new, attentive vendor with upper management who can handle their own workload.

Sure he inherited a sh– show, but he’s been pushing this agenda behind the scenes for years. He’s gone out of his way to remind that he’s been involved intimately in the “transformation.” He also doubled down by saying he had complete faith in Deb and the leadership team.

I agree. Deb is a disaster as a leader. How anyone looks at her and sees a senior leader is beyond me.

As far as Persol, let’s see. They can’t sell the company to anyone until they show we can either grow revenue or return on sales. Right now, we can’t do either.

Well put!!! I believe that Kelly doesn't want to be in the staffing space. My guess is the staffing piece will be sold off to Persol in the near future. Peter inherited a huge sh** storm. Some of these decisions were approved by George. Hopefully Peter will realize that Deb Thorpe is a horrible leader and move her out the door quickly.
