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.”

R1 Impact – Building Healthy Teams

February 5, 2014

Along with the release of our volunteer program, Reliance One introduced the launch of our wellness program; “R1 Impact – Building Healthy Teams.” As a company, we strive to provide our employees with the tools to live healthier lifestyles, and hopefully they enjoy some fun along the way!

The wellness program will include healthy snacks provided by Reliance One weekly and healthy options in our new vending machines, which will be run by the VP, Jim Paquette’s sons. Additionally, our employees will earn “Wellness Tickets” for using our in-office gym (free of charge), visiting the doctor / dentist for check-ups, receiving the flu shot, etc. We’re also excited for the opportunity to offer monthly yoga or boot camp classes here at our headquarters. “I’m confident the introduction of these new programs will create even more energy and excitement within our company and will put us on the top workplaces list for the Detroit area four years in a row,” stated Sr. Recruiter, Alicia Bradley.

2014 is a promising year for Reliance One, and we hope to inspire our employees to lead a healthier lifestyle. We’re confident our new wellness program will make those decisions to be healthy a little bit easier!

katieAuburn Hills, MI., Dec. 16, 2013

Katie Ackert may be short in stature but, her impact to Reliance One and the Auburn Hills community has been remarkable. As a “Rookie” in the staffing industry, Katie has taken the lead with the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce to successfully grow her business. She is known within the company for her determination and her uncanny ability to develop new business. In 2013, Katie was able to establish partnerships with 13 new clients; she has set the tone for other managers who are eager to follow in her footsteps. When asked about her success, Katie said, “I am honored to be named as the 2013 Ambassador of the Year. I have put in a lot of time to help both the Chamber and Reliance One and it has brought me a lot of personal success.”

In addition to being named for the Auburn Hills Award, Reliance One presented Kate with their “Visionary Award” over the weekend. This is a very prestigious award that is given to those that exemplify what it takes to be a leader at Reliance One. In just two short years, Katie launched herself from an entry level position to a manager that is leading in the company as well as their community. It is an honor to have Katie on the Reliance One team and we look forward to watching her grow in the years to come.
