Ultimate Staffing Implements “Haiti and Vacation” Program

Ultimate Staffing Services is giving its employees the opportunity to cash in one Vacation Day and have the cash equivalent donated to the Haiti earthquake relief efforts.

Ultimate Staffing Services is one of the largest staffing companies in the nation and has a reputation for its unique business culture. The creative donation opportunity for its coworkers falls right in line with fulfilling the Company’s Purpose: “To make life better for the people we serve.”®

“We couldn’t ask our coworkers to donate money when we know they’ve already felt the financial effects of the economic climate these past two years,” said Ben Roth, Founder & CEO, “but we have an organization of passionate, caring people who wanted a means to make a difference in Haiti.”

Ultimate Staffing, a division of Roth Staffing Companies, L.P., is already making a corporate donation of $20,000 to the American Red Cross earmarked for the Haiti earthquake. The company will convert each donated vacation day to cash and add it to the total corporate donation that is expected to exceed $100,000.

The program is elective and anonymous. In an internal memo to all coworkers, Roth stated: “We know there are many people in need in this country but the magnitude and severity of the situation in Haiti pulls on the heart strings of all of us. I hope you join me in the belief that this is what our company stands for…always trying to do the right and good thing for others.”

Employees of the company are sharing the idea with their business customers throughout the nation as an innovative way to provide a donation opportunity for employees. Ultimate Staffing used a portion of the converted cash equivalent to cover the employee’s tax requirements. Participating Ultimate Staffing employees are also entitled to claim the charitable deduction on their income tax return.
