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.”

Having a “Can Do” Spirit

September 12, 2014

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Since the launch of Reliance One’s R1 Impact – Through Serving Others, we’ve continued to look for more ways to get involved within the community, and in doing so, we came across a great service! We want other local businesses to know about Tyler’s Bottle Service.

April Rheingans, Employee Relations Coordinator at Reliance One, saw a posting on Facebook and immediately knew that we needed to partner with Tyler’s Bottle Service. “I knew as soon as I read his story that we had to team up with Tyler and use his services,” said Rheingans. She followed up by saying, “Tyler makes cashing in your returnables very easy – simply send him an email and he will respond with a day and time to schedule your pickup. He will come to your home or place of business and count your returnables on site and give you your cash that day!”

Tyler is very professional and polite, and we look forward to supporting his business! Please take the time to look at the service Tyler is providing for the community.
He is a recent graduate of Michigan Career & Technical Institute, a trade school for individuals with disabilities. With a true American “Can Do” Spirit, Tyler has started his own business.

About Tyler’s Bottle Service

“Hate dealing with all those sticky cans and bottles that need to be returned? Hate feeding them into the return machines one at a time? Did you have a party and are over-run with returnables? We have the solution! Tyler’s Bottle Service will pick up and return those Michigan refundable bottles and cans in Oakland County, Michigan, with other counties upon request.” – https://www.facebook.com/#!/TylersBottleService

Reliance One is Growing!

August 5, 2014

Growth means change, and change can be a great thing! It has been quite the journey, but we are excited to announce the opening of our new office, located in the Bingham Farms area! After months of searching for the right location, tedious planning and budgeting, we finally found the perfect space for Reliance One to expand and grow!

“With every office and cube filled to full capacity in our headquarters, it only made sense for us to open up another office to continue with the momentum and growth we’re experiencing on a daily basis,” said Jeff Gardner, Vice President of Sales at Reliance One.

We moved four teams down to our new location, and they are more than excited to dive in head first and make a huge splash for Reliance One. This is just the beginning of big things to come!
