Kelly Services's rank changes

The company's ranking in 2010 was a decline from 2009 when it was ranked 437th on the Fortune 500. The Previous ranking was based on its 2009 revenue of $5,517 million (a change of -1 million compared to 2010) and profits of $-82 million (a change of -23 million compared to 2010).

Another point of view

To many investors, profits are more important than revenue a company earns, If the Fortune 500 was ranked by profits instead of revenue then Kelly Services would be ranked 420th rather than 479th due to the fact it made a loss of $-105 million in 2010.
