IT Dept Honored As Stevie® Award Winner in 2017 American Business Awards

Roth Staffing Companies has won a Bronze Stevie® Award for Information Technology Department of the Year in the 15th Annual American Business Awards today.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

The Roth IT department was recognized among dozens of other tech teams across all industries, receiving bronze-level recognition for their phenomenal work in 2016. This department of 12 serves the entirety of the Roth organization, including its 650+ coworkers and more than 40,000 Ambassadors across all six of its business lines:  Ultimate Staffing Services (the 11th largest office/admin staffing company in the U.S.), Ledgent Finance & AccountingAdams & Martin GroupLedgent TechnologyAbout Talent, and Ultimate Locum Tenens.

As a department, their recognized accomplishments throughout 2016 include:

  • Expediting processes and eliminating more than 10,000,000 pieces of paper with a custom Electronic On-Boarding process
  • Improving and expanding Roth’s award-winning Expedite Timeclock system
  • Revamping Roth’s internal training, development, and resource platform, RothU, redesigning and implementing new programs

“We’re very honored and excited to receive the Stevie Award for IT Department of the year,” says Lead Developer Bardia Moshrefnoory. “I feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team that aspires to make life better and create remarkable experiences every day.”

The team also boasts an unheard of tenure at an average of 7 years (the average tenure for a tech professional is about 2 years), and one of the highest coworker engagement rates in the Roth organization.

This comes as one of many Stevie recognitions in Roth’s history. Over the past year, Roth was recognized by the Stevie Awards for Great Employers as Employer of the Year and People-Focused CEO of the Year. At the 2016 American Business Awards, Roth was honored with three Stevies® for Company of the Year, Marketing Department of the Year, and HR Team of the Year.
