Roth Staffing Companies, one of the largest privately held staffing companies in the nation, was conferred a 2016 American Staffing Association Care Award honorable mention. This national awards program recognizes outstanding corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives—business processes that produce an overall positive effect on society—among ASA member staffing firms and associate members. This is Roth’s second Care Award from the ASA.
The award recognizes Roth Staffing’s Purpose:full charity initiative which creates opportunities for coworkers to fulfill the company’s Purpose, “To make life better for the people we serve,” by getting involved in the community via:
• A nationwide partnership with the American Heart Association and matching donations to coworkers participating in more than 40 Heart Walks across the U.S.
• Allocated donation funds for each local branch office to contribute to selected charities
• An investment of more than 10,000 workday hours spent volunteering
• The launch of (re)Purpose:full advocating environmentally social activities
“Giving back to our communities is not only a privilege, but it is the right thing to do,” said Adam Roth, CEO of Roth Staffing Companies. “Our coworkers are passionate about creating remarkable experiences for others and this extends beyond what we do day-to-day in our offices. It’s an honor to receive recognition from the American Staffing Association – it simply validates that our coworkers are truly making a difference in the lives of others.”
The ASA Care Awards honor CSR initiatives that involve employee training and professional development, community engagement, “green” business practices, philanthropy, and more. A panel of CSR experts select the honorees.
This comes as Roth’s second recognition from the ASA within the past month. In September, Roth won the ASA’s Genius Award for their 2016 Salary & Management Resource Guide. It is also the second time this year that Roth Staffing has been honored for its philanthropic efforts – FORTUNE magazine ranked Roth earlier this year on the list of the 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back.
The ASA Care Award honorees will be celebrated at Staffing World® 2016, the ASA convention and expo, Oct. 25-27, in San Diego, CA.
