Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (NYSE-AMERICAN: VISI) today announced
organizational changes that will strengthen its focus on sales and
service delivery across its spectrum of offerings.

Chris Kelly has joined Volt as Senior Vice President, Strategic
Solutions, Volt Workforce Solutions (VWS). In this role, Ms. Kelly will
bring a greater focus to vendor-on-premise accounts, a growing segment
within the staffing industry and one that represents a significant
strategic opportunity for Volt. Enhanced attention on sales
opportunities in the segment will allow Volt to capitalize on local and
regional delivery strengths, building on the Company's existing retail
footprint.

"I am thrilled that Chris will be leading our Strategic Solutions
Group," said Linda Perneau, Interim President & CEO of Volt Information
Sciences. "Chris's track record in identifying and attracting top talent
and delivering new business makes her a vital addition as we accelerate
the growth of our vendor-on-premise business. She brings exceptional
leadership skills, and a passion for driving profitable growth."

"I am honored to join VWS at this pivotal time and look forward to
delivering enhanced value to our clients as a premier solutions
provider," said Ms. Kelly. "The opportunity to further develop Volt's
strength as an industry leader is extremely exciting. Volt's foundation
in the retail market is the ideal springboard for expanding our
footprint in the industry."

Ms. Kelly brings over 25 years of industry experience at
high-performance companies, including Apple One, Spherion, Randstad, and
most recently, Nelson, where she was Vice President, Strategic Sales,
responsible primarily for enterprise-wide sales efforts. Before joining
Nelson, Ms. Kelly was National Sales Director for the West at
Spherion/Randstad, where she utilized her expertise to deliver
successful and customized solutions to each client.

Volt is also pleased to announce the formation of a new division, Volt
Global Solutions. This division will continue its focus on the Company's
managed service provider (MSP) business and VMS delivery, but will
expand its scope to include the European Consulting Group to better
deliver global solutions to clients. This team will be led by Rhona
Driggs, President, Volt Global Solutions.

Ms. Driggs has over 25 years of experience leading sales and operations
in the staffing industry. Most recently, she served as President, Volt
Consulting Group (VCG) US, where she was responsible for leading and
building the managed service program business. Based on her significant
career accomplishments, Ms. Driggs was honored in SIA's Global Power 100
list of Women in Staffing for the past two consecutive years.
Previously, she served as Executive Vice President of VWS North America,
responsible for commercial operations. Ms. Driggs began her career at
Volt as a Regional Manager, opening several new markets, including in
her native Minneapolis, MN. Prior to joining Volt, Ms. Driggs worked for
Kelly Services, where she led Kelly's Western Region Partnered Staffing
Sales Team.

Ms. Perneau commented, "I am delighted with the formation of both our
Strategic Solutions Group and our Global Solutions Group – these
developments renew our focus and broaden our reach. Under the leadership
of both Chris and Rhona, I am confident both divisions will be powerful
drivers of Volt's swift growth."
