PERSONNEL POOL OF AMERICA, INC., ONE OF THE NATION'S LARGEST TEMPORARY SERVICES COMPANIES, ANNOUNCES ITS NAME CHANGE TO INTERIM SERVICES, INC.
 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Personnel Pool of America, Inc., one of the nation's largest temporary services companies, announced today its name change to INTERIM Services, Inc., and reported that it expects to reach the billion-dollar mark in sales volume in the next 12 months.
 Personnel Pool of America, Inc., a subsidiary of H & R Block, Inc., (NYSE: HRB) will be known as INTERIM Services, Inc., effective July 1, according to Ray Marcy, president and chief executive officer.
 "We believe the name INTERIM reflects the use of personnel on a flexible basis, while also giving us the opportunity to create one memorable name to encompass many different service sectors.
 "No other company in our industry offers such a diverse range of employees. From nurses to industrial workers, from telemarketers to physicians, INTERIM and its specialized service sectors fill more than 2 million assignments annually," said Marcy. "We felt it was time that our name reflected this growth and diversity," he said.
 The company was one of the few in its industry to report growth and profitability last year, which proved a difficult one for other companies in the temporary services sector. Additionally, Marcy announced that the company expects to report $1 billion in sales in the next 12 months.
 INTERIM Services, Inc. operates two primary divisions: INTERIM Healthcare (home care and hospital staffing), and INTERIM Personnel (clerical and light industrial). In addition, the company also operates a number of niche businesses, including: INTERIM Physicians, INTERIM Travel Nurse, INTERIM Legal Personnel, INTERIM Accounting Professionals, and others.
 INTERIM offices are located in nearly 700 cities throughout North America, including the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Founded in 1946, INTERIM now employs more than 250,000 people annually. INTERIM Services, Inc. is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
 H & R Block, Inc., headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., is traded on the New York Stock Exchange as HRB.
