future3December 10, 2015

Auburn Hills, MI – Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying “the best way to predict the future is to create it” and that is exactly what Reliance One is doing. The staffing and recruiting firm proudly celebrated 17 years of solving staffing challenges and providing employment to hundreds of people.

In 1998, James Beath and James Paquette founded Reliance One, Inc. The business partners launched their recruiting services from a residential basement in Flint, MI and through hard work and dedication, the company has now grown to over 600 employees.

“The staffing industry is gaining incredible momentum right now and we are excited to be a part of this extraordinary growth,” said James Beath, co-founder. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, “approximately 211,000 jobs were created in November,” leading to an increase in demand for employees. Reliance One is taking advantage of the economic pressure and is diligently working to fill their clients’ openings.

“We have a team of passionate team members who work hard every day to put people to work and create bright futures for themselves, their contractors, and the company,” said James Paquette, co-founder.

Reliance One Named 2015 Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press

November 30, 2015

Auburn Hills, MI – For the fifth consecutive year, Reliance One, Inc. has been named one of the Top Workplaces by the Detroit Free Press. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“We are honored to receive this award and are grateful to our team for their efforts each and every day” said Jeff Gardner, President. “Our team is imperative to our success and we pride ourselves on creating a collaborative culture in which every team member works together to achieve their personal and professional goals. We stress the importance of preparation and adaptability to our team members, which is important in a prosperous industry. The staffing industry is thriving right now and with growth comes opportunity. Our team realizes the potential and does what it takes to achieve their goals and in turn, the company goals are met.”

Reliance One Hosts First 5K Race

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

5k

Reliance One’s Vice President of Recruitment and Operations, Rob Wicker and his daughter Libby, starting the race out strong.

Auburn Hills, MI – On Sunday, October 11th, Reliance One hosted their first annual 5k Donut Dash to promote employee wellness and to raise money for the Rainbow Connection as part of our R1 Impact initiative.

The event featured a costume contest, first place prizes, and of course cider and donuts. Jennifer Petritis, Human Resources Coordinator, played a large part in the planning of the event. “I was extremely impressed with the turnout at this event. We exceeded our fundraising expectations and participants were able to reach personal goals by completing the race alongside of colleagues and family. I am looking forward to a 2nd Annual 5k Donut Dash!”

Reliance One started R1 Impact in 2013 to make a difference in the communities that we work in while developing and growing personally and professionally. Last year, Reliance One employees raised enough funds to sponsor a wish for the Rainbow Connection which sent a young girl and her family on a dream trip to Walt Disney World.

R1 Impact would not be possible without the generosity of everyone who continuously participates in Reliance One’s fundraising events.  Thank you to everyone who coordinated and participated in the 2015 Donut Dash 5k. If you would like to know more about upcoming events this year, follow us on Facebook for updates!

Executive Team - Day of Service

August 11, 2015

Auburn Hills, MI – The Reliance One Executive Leadership Team began their day of service with a walk through history as Roy Hoelscher, Volunteer Director, shared the inspiring story of how the Capuchin Soup Kitchen program came to Detroit. Roy has been serving the Detroit Community for over 40 years; he is dedicating his life to serving others. He shared the beautiful story of his daughter, 1 of 12 adopted children, who serves our country. There is no doubt that her morals and values are rooted with the passion and drive that Roy brings to light.

“The Soup Kitchen got its official start during the Great Depression of 1929, a period of devastating national poverty that caused the poor of this Detroit community to knock on the monastery’s back door asking for bread.” (www.cskdetroit.org) The Reliance One Team is challenging everyone to find time to volunteer. Kristen Latimer, Vice President of Administration reflects, “Everyone has been through a time in their life when the odds seem against them. People need a strong support system and help from the community to make it through. I shared the experience with my children and they are eager to volunteer their time now.”

“If you want to volunteer at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen we ask you to bring three important things with you: a willingness to work hard, an open and positive attitude, and a smile. We can promise you that you will work hard, have some fun, and learn a great deal about yourself and your fellow human beings.”

Miles of Pain for Others to Gain!

Jen P April Santa Cycle (2)

Reliance One Joins Twisted Root at Santa Cycle

Auburn Hills, MI., Dec. 16, 2014

This holiday season Reliance One participated in the 1st Annual Santa Cycle Fundraiser at Twisted Root Yoga & Fitness. The event was held for 24 hours straight – it launched at 7:00am Friday, December 5th and finished at 6:00am Saturday, December 6th. The purpose of this event was to support a local Clarkston family in need. The funds were raised by asking riders to provide a donation and for the teams to come together and provide donations.

The Twisted Root, owned by Amanda and Rob Elosegui, put together the event at their studio where they have 10 spin bikes. Reliance One sponsored two teams and contributed over $600.00 towards the cause. Kristen Latimer, Vice President of Administration, teamed up with the facility to help expand the R1 Impact team. “Our wellness committee is always looking for opportunities to challenge the staff. We were thrilled to be involved with such a great cause and look forward to riding again next year,” said Latimer.

The total miles accrued for Reliance One riders were 813.9 miles – this was achieved by 26 participants. The miles totaled by the whole studio event for 24 hours were enough to get someone from Clarkston, MI to Las Vegas Nevada; approximately 2,030 miles!

Amanda and Rob are taking time this upcoming weekend to shop for the Clarkston family. The money raised for this local family of three children will be providing a complete holiday meal and gifts for the family for Christmas. As we draw near the holiday, the Impact team is looking forward to contributing to other causes.
