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!

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.
