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.

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!

Michigan’s Healthiest Employer Honor Roll Award

Auburn Hills, MI., Oct. 31, 2013

Reliance One, Inc. was named a recipient of the Honor Roll Award at the Crain’s Health Care Leadership Summit that was hosted on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. The competition was fierce this year as many companies have looked to wellness to supplement their health insurance programs. Reliance One was headstrong as 2013 was the launch of our Fit Bit Challenge. July 1st was when the team took their first steps towards the long term goal of 35 million steps. With over fifty percent of the staff participating, our employees were motivated to stay at the top of the mobile app charts. Through various mini challenges as well as weekly incentives, Reliance One employees are excited to participate. The initial challenge is slated to end by December 2013 which in turn is only the beginning.

As 2014 is on the horizon, Reliance One plans to take wellness to a whole other level. Many new ideas were presented at the Award Ceremony that Reliance One plans to adopt. Stay tuned as our company transitions to the innovative healthy workplace that 2014 is sure to bring. We are honored to be mentioned as a part of Michigan’s Healthiest Employers and look forward to solidifying a win next week. We would also like to extend our congratulations to those that made a difference at their workplace to achieve an award. “The greatest wealth is health.” -Virgil
