This year, Roth Staffing Companies was the one and only staffing firm to receive all four of the highest honors awarded in the staffing industry. This is an incredible accomplishment considering there are approximately 17,000 staffing companies operating in the U.S. according to the American Staffing Association.
The most prestigious awards given in the industry include Staffing Industry Analysts’ exclusive designation as a “Best Staffing Firm to Work For” and “Best Staffing Firm to Temp For” as well as Inavero’s “Best of Staffing™-Client” and “Best of Staffing™-Talent.” No staffing company received all four awards in 2013 other than Roth Staffing Companies, which is an unprecedented feat for any large staffing organization.
“We are truly humbled and grateful to receive these prestigious honors,” said Adam Roth, President and Chief Operating Officer of Roth Staffing Companies. “We have more than one hundred offices located across the nation, which creates an interesting challenge in our quest to be ‘the best place to work’ for our coworkers and our Ambassadors across 21 states.” Adam Roth is the architect of many of the programs designed to build engagement among coworkers, Ambassadors (temporary employees that represent the company on assignments), and clients (businesses that partner with Roth Staffing to fill temporary and full-time positions). “To me, these awards validate that what we’re building and championing at Roth Staffing is working,” continued Adam. “It means that our coworkers have embraced the unique culture of our company and are passionate about creating remarkable experiences for our Ambassadors and clients.”
Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on temporary staffing, says, “Over the last decade, research has corroborated the positive benefits of treating employees well. Taking care of internal workers helps outperform [other staffing companies]. It’s an honor [being named ‘Best Staffing Firm to Work For’], yes, but it’s not just about the prestige. ‘Best Staffing Firms’ have been proven to receive seven times more résumés than their opponents.” Subadhra Sriram, Editorial Director of SIA, discussed the benefits that companies experience when they work with a staffing firm that focuses on coworker engagement, “Partnering with a vendor that takes care of its workers bodes well for business. Clients say the distinction is evident in the positive attitude and drive, which carries forward to how these staffing firms provide the service in the first place.”
Inavero, the world’s leading provider of client and job candidate satisfaction research for staffing companies, agrees that Roth Staffing Companies is deserving of being recognized as “the best” at delivering exceptional service. Inavero partners with CareerBuilder to host the Best of Staffing™ program and awarded Roth Staffing with both the “Best of Staffing™ – Client” and “Best of Staffing™ – Talent” honors. Less than 1% of staffing companies in North America are honored with a “Best of Staffing” award and even fewer achieve both awards. Although Inavero focuses on measuring client and candidate satisfaction levels, the firm’s in-depth research confirms that exceptional service in staffing begins with a unique culture and engaged internal coworkers. Inavero reports that their winners average an internal turnover about 10% lower than the industry average. When a client works with a Best of Staffing™ winner, they typically work with the same contact throughout the staffing partnership, grow a stronger relationship and receive superior service as a result. Inavero also reports that Best of Staffing™ award winners place more importance on the quality of their candidate pool and understanding the culture of their clients. The culture fit between candidates and the companies they are placed with is paramount to the satisfaction of both parties.
Roth Staffing has earned a reputation for its commitment and pursuit of “engagement.” Roth Staffing and its business lines offer expertise in creating great workplaces by building and championing culture. Adam Roth’s success with the implementation of visionary employee engagement programs has earned him a spot as a regularly featured guest on the VoiceAmerica internet radio program called “A Great Place to Work” hosted by Curt Coffman, author of First Break All the Rules and Culture Eats Strategy for Lunch, and Dr. Kathy Sorenson, a pioneer in studying corporate people management.
“Engagement” has become a buzz word frequently used in the business world these past five years, but it has come to mean many things. At Roth Staffing Companies, “engagement” is defined as a coworker who is “passionate, highly productive, and fully committed in all aspects of their role.” Roth Staffing’s philosophy has been to focus first on creating a great workplace that inspires and motivates its coworkers. Roth Staffing’s belief is that you cannot have passionate clients or Ambassadors without engaged coworkers.
“This all ties back in to our culture,” said Ben Roth, Founder & CEO of Roth Staffing, “From the beginning, we set out to be the best company to work for; a place where our coworkers could do good things for others and always do the right thing. The key to enlivening these philosophies is our company Values, Purpose, and Promise which together provide a platform for making life better for the people we serve and creating remarkable experiences.” Ben Roth founded Roth Staffing in 1994 and is named on SIA’s “Staffing 100” list as one of the Most Influential People in Staffing as well as a former recipient of Ernst & Young’s “Entrepreneur of the Year.”
“It’s an honor to receive not just one, but all of the industry’s highest accolades,” added Ben. “Being recognized as the best in any single area in a $100 billion industry is a wonderful achievement. Being awarded as the best from each of the perspectives of our coworkers, temporary employees and our customers is amazing! It doesn’t happen by accident. Great companies are the result of passionate people sharing in a very clear vision with depth and meaning that enables all of us to be the very best at what we do, and working hard to align all elements that influence the journey. And obviously, you never fully arrive as best-in-class companies continually strive to keep improving.”
