Roth Staffing Companies’ Roth Hero Helps Women Enter the Workforce and Lead Successful Careers

Roth Staffing Companies recognized coworker Megan Foley as a Roth Hero for her work in helping promote economic independence among disadvantaged women in her community.  The Roth Hero program pays tribute to some of Roth Staffing Companies’ coworkers, business customers, vendors, and Ambassadors—the temporary employees who represent Roth Staffing—who do extraordinary things in their communities every day.

A coworker with Ultimate Staffing Services (a business line of Roth Staffing Companies) in Eagan, Minnesota, Megan is well-versed in the types of things that hiring managers are looking for and how to coach candidates on presenting themselves well in interviews and on the job.

Armed with this valuable knowledge, she partnered with the international non-profit organization Dress For Success to connect women in need to professional wardrobes and career resources.  Megan first began working with the Dress for Success Twin Cities chapter as a personal shopper in the organization’s “suiting” program, helping women find the perfect head-to-toe wardrobes and make over their looks for upcoming interviews.

She then decided to use her recruiter insight to help build a training program called Professional Intelligence, which teaches participants how to achieve long-term career success.  Megan also took over as a facilitator of the Professional Women’s Group, a networking and skill-building program that cultivates professional relationships and educated working women on topics like health and wellness.

“I love being able to make a difference in the lives of these women, who are assets to our community,” says Megan.  “After working with so many hiring managers, I have solid insight into what they’re looking for, in addition to knowledge garnered throughout my own 17-year career.  It’s very rewarding being able to use this experience to help women through Dress For Success, most of whom are struggling to overcome generational poverty or traumatic life experiences and simply need a helping hand and some career guidance.  At Roth Staffing Companies, our Purpose is ‘To make life better for the people we serve,®’ and I’m passionate about fulfilling this commitment within my community as well.”

“Megan offers great insight and stories to support self-awareness, empathy, understanding, and win-win professional behavior in the workplace,” says Kate, a beneficiary of DFS Twin Cities.  “She attends every session and is committed to our success, and I’m always happy to see her in the room!”

Roth Staffing Companies proudly honored Megan as a Roth Hero for her endless support to women in need, and awarded Megan a $500 cash prize to donate to Dress For Success.  The company is still accepting nominations for everyday heroes, which can be submitted at www.rothstaffing.com/hero.
