Fortune Names Roth Staffing Companies a Best Workplace for Giving Back

Roth Staffing Companies is ranked a second consecutive year by Fortune Magazine on the list of Best Workplaces for Giving Back based on survey research from Great Place to Work.  Through its dedicated community giving programs, Roth is making a positive impact and empowers its coworkers to do the same.

Roth Staffing Companies ranked #24 on the list, its second consecutive appearance. The list is based on more than 350,000 surveys of employees across a range of industries, as well as their organizations’ charitable programs and giving. These leading workplaces go above and beyond to develop endeavors in giving back that ensure all team members feel they’re making a difference in the world. As a result, people at winning workplaces report more pride in their employers and feeling deeper meaning in their day-to-day work.

“Our company’s purpose is ‘To make life better for the people we serve,’” says Adam Roth, CEO of Roth Staffing Companies.  “With that core philosophy at the heart of all we do, it’s not surprising that the people who choose to join our organization are passionate about doing good things for others.  I am so very proud of the work our coworkers do both in and out of the office.  It’s an honor to create opportunities that allow our coworkers to do what they do best – change lives.”

Community Giving programs are an integral component in making Roth a great place to work, and a direct reflection of the company’s core philosophies, which is all about making life better for job seekers and local business customers.

This award recognition arrives just as Roth Staffing announces its 2017 Purpose:full charity initiative. Roth’s annual program carves out opportunities for individual coworkers, local branch teams, and companywide national partnerships. This year, the organization will invest nearly $1 Million to fund Purpose:full’s community giving programs.  As a company, coworkers across the nation participate in American Heart Association ‘Heart Walks,’ more than $50,000 are allocated for individual branches to donate to local non-profit organizations of their choice. Each Roth coworker is allotted, and encouraged, to use 24 workday hours each year to volunteer, and as a whole, Roth coworkers will volunteer 10,000 hours to the organizations of their choosing.

Roth’s work in the community also enhances the wellbeing and effectiveness of its team. Great Place to Work’s research found that employees who are strongly connected to their organization’s positive influence on the community report 4 to 11 times the productivity, commitment, brand ambassadorship and overall work experience as their peers.

“The Best Workplaces for Giving Back are accomplishing something greater than the sum of their contributions to worthy causes. They also offer employees a sense they’re part of something bigger that’s making a difference in the world,” said Chinwe Onyeagoro, president of Great Place to Work.

Roth has been ranked by Fortune on five additional best workplaces list over the past year including the #11 Best Medium Workplace (its second appearance on the list), and Best Workplace lists for TexasRecent Grads, Consulting and Professional Services, and Best Workplaces for Women.

Fortune is not the only organization to recognize Roth’s renowned workplace culture. The organization was named one of Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in North America, and was recognized by the Stevie Awards for Great Employers as Employer of the Year. This is in addition to their sixth win from Staffing Industry Analysts for “Best Staffing Firms to Work For,” and third time being named a “Best Staffing Firm to Temp For.” Additionally, Roth Staffing Companies was recognized with the When Work Works award for its innovation in creating a flexible workplace.

About The Best Workplaces for Giving Back

The Best Workplaces for Giving Back were determined by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work based on feedback from more than 357,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified organizations. Employees completed anonymous Trust Index© surveys, answering detailed questionnaires that include questions about how proud they are of their impact on the community, the difference they feel they make and whether their work has special meaning. Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95 percent confidence level and a margin of error of 5 percent or less.

To select the list, Great Place to Work considered organizations’ policies regarding paid time off for volunteering and the extent to which they contribute generously to community and charitable causes through corporate donations and employee fund-matching programs. Final rankings were based primarily on employees’ feedback on more than 50 survey questions, with a special emphasis on their connection to the organization’s community impact. Rankings reward companies where not only the majority of employees are proud of their community involvement, but these experiences are widely shared within the organization regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role or other personal characteristics. Results also take into account the complexity of the employee population and performance relative to peers.
