Roth Staffing Companies Receives Fifth When Work Works Award in Oregon

Roth Staffing Companies, parent company of Ultimate Staffing and Ledgent Finance & Accounting, has been honored with a 2017 When Work Works Award for its exemplary workplace practices surrounding flexibility, in its Oregon locations and across the nation. Both of Roth’s Portland branches, Ultimate Staffing and Ledgent Finance & Accounting, have been recognized alongside 12 other Oregon companies for their commitment to creating a balanced workplace. This is Roth’s fifth consecutive win for the When Work Works award.

The prestigious When Work Works Award is part of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) When Work Works project, a national initiative that helps employers become more successful by transforming the way they view and adopt effective and flexible workplaces.

The award recognizes employers of all sizes across the country that are excelling at offering a variety of top-rated employee initiatives such as work-life fit policies, flexible scheduling and transition to parenthood programs. The award goes beyond work-life programs and includes initiatives that address the additional evidence-based aspects of effective workplaces, such as opportunities for learning, a culture of respect and trust, and job autonomy.

In applying for the award, Roth was evaluated on factors associated with employee health, well-being and engagement: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work-life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities for advancement.

“These winners have reinvented their workplaces in ways that benefit business and employees alike and are reaping the benefits in terms of employee job satisfaction and retention,” said Cassidy Solis, senior advisor, workplace flexibility, at SHRM.

The award is earned after a rigorous assessment that emphasizes the real-life experiences of employees and incorporates national benchmarks of employer practices from the National Study of Employers and the employee experiences from the National Study of the Changing Workforce. Two-thirds of an organization’s winning score is based on a survey of its employees.

Roth is renowned for its award-winning practices and culture, both in and outside the staffing industry. Roth has been recognized as having “an unreal number of awards,” the organization was recently recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as a 2017 “Best Staffing Firm to Work For” for the seventh consecutive year, and as a 2017 “Best Staffing Firm to Temp For” for the fourth time.

Over the past year, Roth has been ranked by Fortune on six best workplaces lists including the #1 Best Workplace for Consulting and Professional Services and the #11 Best Medium Workplace (its second appearance on the list), and Fortune Best Workplace lists for TexasRecent Grads, Giving Back, and Best Workplaces for Women.

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.
