Roth Staffing Companies Recognized for Workplace Practices and Culture

Roth Staffing Companies, parent company of Ultimate Staffing Services and Ledgent Finance & Accounting, has been honored with a 2018 When Work Works Award for exemplary workplace practices in branches located in Portland, OR and across the nation. This is the organization’s sixth consecutive year on the list.

As part of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) When Work Works Project, the award recognizes employers of all sizes across the country that are excelling at offering innovative work-life balance and flexibility initiatives. The award evaluated employee well-being, engagement, opportunities for learning, workplace culture, opportunities for advancement, and satisfaction with earnings and benefits, among other metrics. Two-thirds of an organization’s winning score is based on a survey of its employees.

“These organizations developed HR policies and programs to support and maintain this environment, and they are reaping the benefits with increased retention, productivity, and overall success for their investment,” said Lisa Horn SHRM vice president, Congressional Affairs.

“In an industry known for long hours and little flexibility, these work balance initiatives are particularly important for our coworkers,” said Market Manager Dana Joseph. “I couldn’t be any prouder to represent a company that not only champions these initiatives, but that is also continually looking for ways to improve employee engagement even further.”

Roth Staffing offers a 9/80 flex scheduled (one of the first staffing firms to ever offer such an option), as well as flexible start options, paid parental leave, and paid volunteer hours.

Roth Staffing has also recently been recognized by Fortune magazine as one of the Best Workplaces for Small & Medium Businesses and was listed as the #1 small/medium company in the Best Workplaces for Women list. Roth Staffing has also been recognized as a top workplace for diversity and parents, and was recognized by the Portland Business Journal as one of the Healthiest Employers of Oregon.

Additional information about the When Work Works Award and the When Work Works initiative is available online. Winning organizations for 2018 are available through an interactive map that lists winning organizations by state and a list of winners by name.
