Since 1984 The Reserves Network (TRN) has been providing “Total Staffing Solutions,” through office, industrial, professional and technical staffing services. The company began as a single office executive recruiting firm in Cleveland, Ohio, and today places nearly 20,000 employees in temporary, temporary-to-hire and direct hire positions. With more than 40 operating locations in the Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast, TRN still calls Northeast Ohio home. It's eight area offices, and all field offices, are backed by the company’s Service & Support Center, located in Fairview Park. TRN has received multiple honors for sales growth and management excellence. The company is a 14-time winner of the Weatherhead 100 Award for fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio; a 12-time recipient of the NorthCoast 99 Award, honoring best companies to work for in Northeast Ohio; a ten-time NEO Success Award winner, recognizing top-performing companies in Northeast Ohio; named a 2013 Best Employer in Ohio by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM); and has been named to The Cleveland Plain Dealer's list of Top Workplaces in Northeast Ohio four straight years.
Each year The Reserves Network celebrates National Staffing Employee Week. A Week, which was founded by the American Staffing Association to pay tribute to the nation's temporary employees. As part of the celebration, the company selects “National Staffing Employee Stars” from each of its office and on-site locations. Nominees are honored with a certificate and monetary prize.
The Reserves Network takes part in the annual ‘Harvest for Hunger' Food Drive Campaign. In 2012 the company collected nearly a half a ton of food and household products. The items were collected throughout the month of April at TRN's seven Northeast Ohio office locations, as well as its corporate headquarters in Fairview Park. The amount of food gathered translated into 725 nutritious meals for hungry families throughout the area.
The Reserves Network added some new mascots in 2012. Three Sulcata tortoises joined the company's Service & Support Center in Fairview Park this past May. The tortoises were purchased by CFO Nick Stallard. Te, Ar and En (Named after the company's abbreviated name TRN) gained celebrity status when they were featured in the Aug. 20, 2012 issue of Crain's Cleveland Business. Though palm-sized when young, Sulcatas can weigh 70 to 100 pounds and typically live for several decades.
Last September, Reserves Network staff and family members participated in the Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure. Team TRN was able to raise dontaions through their fundraising efforts as walkers and runners in the event, which raises money for breast cancer research and awareness of the disease.
It's both challenging and rewarding.
I have flexibility, adaptability to do the things I do best, and can delegate to others the things they are best at doing.
