Roth Staffing Companies is proud to do business in Texas, one of the fastest-growing states in the union, and to be ranked #10 out of 50 Best Workplaces in Texas by Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work.  This includes the specialized business lines of Roth Staffing Companies operating in Texas:  Ultimate Staffing ServicesLedgent Finance & AccountingLedgent TechnologyAdams & Martin Group, and Ultimate Locum Tenens.

The Best Workplaces in Texas are selected based on employees’ assessment of their organizations’ culture, professional development, leadership credibility and other factors. Among more than 100,000 people surveyed at businesses operating in Texas, those at the Best Workplaces gave their companies high marks for creating warm, friendly environments where colleagues truly care about each other and their communities. The winning organizations also out-performed their peers on measures of pride, work-life balance and the fairness of their compensation.

“Although Roth Staffing Companies operates nationwide, the values of our company are particularly aligned with the values of our clients and candidates in the great state of Texas,” says Kristi Kennedy, Senior Vice President at Roth Staffing.  “With 11 branch offices located in the lone-star state, I’m so very proud of the work culture our Texas coworkers have championed.  They not only make life better for the people we serve, but they support and care for each other.  They eagerly participate in our company’s community volunteer initiatives, health challenges, and support the many recognition programs that celebrate their coworkers.”

People at the Best Workplaces in Texas were more likely to say they look forward to coming to work and that they’re willing to give extra to get the job done – traits that help Roth Staffing better serve its Ambassadors (the temporary employees who represent them) and clients.

2016 has been interesting to say the least, but you have enough time to make the most of it, and even get a head start! As the year comes to a close, don’t abandon all you’ve worked to build.

Check in on those resolutions

According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s Resolution. If you’re part of the 92% who didn’t, it’s not too late. Revisit your resolutions and fulfill them before you begin your next set!

With the holidays coming, now is your chance to get everything in order. You’re bound to have visitors and tons of new goodies. Tidy up now and donate things that you no longer use. You’ll feel less overwhelmed once the chaos dies down.

Volunteer

Plenty of organizations need attention this holiday season. Charitable giving makes a big increase during the holiday months, but that’s not always true for smaller organizations or niche causes. Collect donations and volunteer for causes that may be less popular. This is especially true for team-based volunteering. Team holiday service opportunities can be booked well before November. However you choose to volunteer, be sure to give the organization plenty of notice so they can be prepared to meet you or accept your donations. Then, carry this habit with you into the new year!

Stay active

While reports of how much weight we actually gain during the holiday season differ, it doesn’t hurt to try and remain active during this busy time. Do jumping jacks during the commercial breaks of your favorite holiday specials, push-ups in between wrapping each present, nightly walks with those you love.

Have fun

This is an exciting time! Don’t stress over parking spots or last-minute year-end to-dos (even this list).

Enjoy the season and get stoked for the new year!
