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.

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!

Taking the Lead with Change

Reliance One and its leaders take great pride in their ability to adapt to change. “We have to adapt and overcome, that’s all we can do” (Frank Knight). Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was set into motion, Kristen Latimer, Administrative Services Manager, has committed a large part of her time to compliance, education, and strategic planning. She has spent numerous days at seminars collecting information and networking with experts to ensure that Reliance One stays one step ahead of future plans.

As a result of Kristen’s knowledge bank, in addition to her passion for education, she was asked to participate as a panel member in the 5th Annual HR Summit held at Walsh College on, Thursday, March 6, 2014. The purpose of panel was for Human Resources professionals to offer an interactive conversation on how each company was approaching compliance. “Reliance One is doing everything in its power to offer functional and affordable benefits to its workforce. I take great pride in working for a company that is committed to doing the right thing; our employees are our greatest asset,” said Kristen. Reliance One was thrilled to be included in the discussion and the company plans to keep ACA compliance at the top of their agenda. Both Kristen and the leaders at Reliance One fully understand that tall order that must be filled by 2015.

Leadership as Defined by Katie Ackert

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.

Strategic Alliance’s Fuel Growth

November 8, 2013

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Reliance One, a minority owned staffing and recruiting firm, was just ranked as the 9th largest (2012 Revenue) Hispanic-Owned Businesses in Metro Detroit by Crain’s Detroit Business.

Reliance One relocated its headquarters to Auburn Hills in March of 2012. “We purchased a 22,000 square-foot building in Auburn Hills and created it into a state of the art recruiting center for our clients and employees. The building is designed with the latest technologies and the layout is perfect for what we do – putting people to work,” said Jim Beath, President of Reliance One.

The first year in our new location, we grew 18% and Reliance One is on pace to more than double that growth in 2013. Fueling this growth is strategic alliances with clients that have come to depend on Reliance One to solve their staffing challenges. “Our services have never been more in demand then they are right now. Companies are struggling to find the talent they need to meet their resource demands,” said Beath.

Another key reason we are growing is due to our continued participation with the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “This partnership provides numerous networking opportunities with business leaders that embrace diversity and inclusion in the workplace” said Beath. These networking opportunities are both local and national. “Working with Reliance One, you immediately feel a strong sense of reliability, friendship and confidence, knowing they are looking out for your best interest. Reliance One has a distinctive passion about their business and how they work with customers,” said Camilo Suero, Executive Director of the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

May 20, 2013

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Last Saturday, thousands of people came out for the 21st annual Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure in downtown Detroit. . A number of Reliance One employees and their families participated in the 22nd annual race. “The weather was beautiful and it was great to see such an amazing turn out. This is such a great cause and we are glad that we can contribute towards the research and the cure of breast cancer.” Says, Chad Toms, National Sales Manager at Reliance One.

About Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®

Susan G. Komen, who is the global leader of the breast cancer movement, is an inspiration who fought breast cancer with everything she had. Throughout her diagnosis, she spent her time coming up with ways to make life better for other women fighting breast cancer instead of worrying about her condition. Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer forever.

That ‘promise’ is now known as the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which has invested more than $1.9 billion since its start in 1982. They work together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and motivate scientists to find the cures needed. Thanks to events, such as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from sponsors and fellow supporters, they have become the largest source of nonprofit funds devoted to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
