A NOTE FROM RELIANCE ONE FIRST LADIES

Auburn Hills, Michigan – December 11, 2017 – Congratulations Reliance One, Incorporated on your anniversary!  19 years ago, Jim Beath and Jim Paquette, solidified their partnership with a vision of a new staffing company.  We have had the honor of watching these two guys develop a company as well as evolve as businessmen and friends.  This adventure they embarked on came complete with hurdles, as well as success.   As passengers on this ride, we have learned quite a bit about what it takes to start and own a successful business.

First, you have to have the same first name as your business partner.  This makes it much easier for new employees to remember the name of their boss.  Second, you have to be able to work in any atmosphere (basement, attic, loft, car, etc.).  You never know when you’ll be so tight for space that you have to place the printer and fax machine in the closet.  Lastly, you need a connection with a creative writer or a branding agent.  Who else is going to brainstorm all the ism’s on the walls of the office?

In all seriousness, what we have learned from these two remarkable guys is that it takes determination, perseverance, and reflection to begin, maintain, and then grow a successful company like Reliance One, Incorporated.  The nature of starting any business requires grit and determination.  It takes a determined duo like Beath and Paquette to have a vision of the greater plan and consistently aim forward.  They’ve set goals religiously from the onset and adapted those goals to meet the needs of the company.

Becoming successful also demands many sacrifices both personal and professional.  We’ve watched Jim and Jim give up a tremendous amount of personal time over the years and voluntarily take one for the Reliance One team whenever it has been needed.  This has also been the case with many of the Reliance One Team.  Fortunately, their perseverance in envisioning the fruition of the ROI dream has paid off.  This is evident in the many positive relationships both within and outside the company.  It is very apparent that the family of employees who represent Reliance One, Incorporated are also invested in the ROI vision.

Reliance One employees project a well-earned and top-notch reputation.  Ultimately, Beath, Paquette and the ROI family consistently reflect on themselves and the nature of the company.  This ability to reflect and learn (growth mindset) is what has allowed Reliance One Inc. to continue to mature and flourish.

We are very proud of Jim Beath, Jim Paquette, and the Reliance One Inc. Team.

Happy Anniversary!

Tiffany Beath and Josie Paquette

January 22, 2016

Auburn Hills, MI – Reliance One, Inc. is proud to announce their sponsorship of  Backpack Night 2016 hosted by Shard Financial Services, Inc. and the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

Backpack Night is a project taken on by the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan which makes an effort to reduce child hunger, provide education to students on proper nutrition, and encourage healthy lifestyles. The program was created to offer additional support to children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches at school. It provides a backpack full of nutritious foods every weekend throughout the school year so that no child goes hungry. The number of children that are eligible for free or reduced lunch in Michigan is staggering. In Genesee County alone, there is a 55% eligibility rate.

The program states that childhood hunger is a community problem that the community can solve. There are many ways to help. A donation in support of the program is the best way to help the cause. A $100 contribution feeds a child every weekend during the school year. You can also get involved with local community schools and help bring the program to your local district or you could volunteer your services to help fill backpacks during the school day. For more information on the program and ways to help, please visit http://www.backpacknight.com/backpack-program/.
