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.”

What a Way to Welcome in 2014!

January 6, 2014

2014 is off to a cold start, but that doesn’t mean it’s off to a bad one! Temperatures in the Detroit area are hovering around 6° with a wind chill of -15° and are expected to drop even more. Schools and businesses are closed all over. With the roads in the condition they were with the sudden change in the weather, Reliance One made the decision to close the office for the day for everyone’s safety, but that doesn’t mean the R1 staff isn’t working hard at home! Recruiters, Account Managers, and Administrative staff are all focusing on their tasks at hand.

“The roads were the worst I’ve seen them in a long time. I lost track of how many cars I saw in ditches or in an accident, and I hope that everyone stays safe out there”, says Samantha Martin, Social Media and Marketing Coordinator for Reliance One. “It’s great to see Reliance One looking out for their employees and client’s safety”, she adds. So whether you’re at home with your kids on their snow day, or braving the conditions, Reliance One wants everyone to be safe and careful!
