Operating Environment.  The operating environment remains relatively unchanged in terms of the overall macro environment, the availability of top talent, labor force participation, quit rates, and some other key labor factors. We continue to believe Kelly is well positioned to capitalize on any improvement in the operating environment.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin. The sale of the lower margin European Staffing business combined with management’s focus on cost reduction is showing up in the financial results, with adjusted EBITDA margin up 120bp year-over-year. We expect a similar improvement in 2Q24 and the MRP acquisition likely will drive margins even higher.
