Roth Staffing Companies Chooses Wounded Veteran as Roth Hero of the Week

Bill Moses, a former Ambassador of the St. Louis, Missouri branch of Ultimate Staffing Services (a business line of Roth Staffing Companies) is Roth Staffing’s latest Roth Hero of the Week.  Bill is a veteran of the United States Air Force Special Operations Unit and rescued people in emergency situations during the First Gulf War.

After finishing his tour in the military, Bill became the primary caregiver for several family members struggling with chronic illnesses, ultimately relocating to St. Louis to dedicate himself to their care.  He bravely overcame some rough times including the deaths of several loved ones, and connected with Ultimate Staffing.

When Bill garnered a position with a local technology company, he dedicated himself to championing the organization’s workplace culture and developing a tight-knit family environment.  New Ambassadors (Ultimate Staffing’s temporary employees) who arrived on assignment received mentoring and special attention to ensure that they felt welcome. Bill became known for his optimistic spirit, great work ethic, and willingness to always help others.  In fact, when Bill developed a blood clot in his leg, coworkers went out of their way to take care of him.

Bill underwent five surgeries in just a few months and in the end, doctors needed to amputate his leg.  A coworker and the coworker’s wife visited Bill every day for several months to assist him with cooking and taking care of his two cats, while another coworker stopped by to do the laundry and cleaning.

The outpouring of support he received during the first stages of recovery inspired Bill to give back to others struggling with similar medical issues; he brainstormed ways to get involved with supporting veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.  He plans to implement them as soon as he is fitted for a prosthetic leg.

“I’ve been so fortunate to have been surrounded by heroes throughout my life,” says Bill Moses.  “From childhood through my time in the military, to present day, I’ve known incredible and selfless people who have inspired me to give back and pay it forward.”

As Roth Staffing’s latest Roth Hero of the Week, Bill receives a $1,000 cash prize and joins a league of extraordinary customers, coworkers, and Ambassadors who are doing great things in their communities.  The Roth Heroes program aims to recognize these everyday heroes as part of its 20th Anniversary celebration.  Roth Staffing is honoring one Roth Hero every week during its 20 Weeks of Celebration leading up to the organization’s Platinum Anniversary, and is still accepting Roth Heroes nominations.  To nominate a hero or to learn more about the program, please visit www.rothstaffing.com/hero.
