Better Placements. Better Retention. The Right Workforce

Contact Us

Better Placements.

We have an intentional screening process that aims to find the right fit for your openings. We seek only high-quality candidates who are ready for work and have met the expectations that YOU have set. We save you time and resources when we send you quality over quantity.

Better Retention.

We recruit strong talent, address barriers, and coach them all the way through their time with us. Since we launched, over 50% of the temps that we have placed with a partner company are either still working today or have been hired on permanently.

Our Process


We understand the employment markets in our area. We understand the barriers faced by low-income employees, and what keeps people out of the job market. We also understand what it really means to have high turnover and poor employee engagement in a business.


We find top candidates through a number of means, including direct recruiting, referrals from our existing and past employee network, and partnering with nonprofits serving people with barriers throughout the city, such as CityLink Center.


We get to know you. We don’t view you as a client – we view you as a partner. We want our temp employees to add value to your business, and ultimately become permanent employees with growth opportunities. We actively seek partnerships that are the right fit.


Our core model is 90 day temp to hire. We bring in temps for you to interview and select, then after 90 days they come on permanently as your employee.

Job Coaching

Throughout the temp period, we will coach our employees weekly to help them work through the pressures and challenges of employment. We support them as they grow in their role and ultimately work towards becoming your permanent employee.

What Our Clients Say

MANE, Inc. continues to work with Roots because we feel they best align with our values for creating a great place to work with a welcoming and inclusive environment.  Roots takes the time to stay in contact with their employees to coach them, advocate for them, and set them up for success for the duration of their placement, and it shows in the long-term retention of their candidates.  Roots consistently offers us the best customer service and adapts to our changing needs quickly and efficiently, and MANE appreciates the extra work they put in to support their candidates and our business.

MANE, Inc.

Working with Roots Staffing has been a tremendously positive experience. Their team members always work swiftly to respond to our company’s requests, and their consistent and clear communication is nothing short of exceptional. More than that, the heart that this company has for people is astounding. This team continuously goes above and beyond, not only for the companies they support, but also for the employees that they serve. Nehemiah Manufacturing Company is blessed to call Roots Staffing our partner.

Nehemiah Manufacturing

Our organization worked with several different staffing companies throughout the years prior to developing a partnership with Roots. In our experience, the other staffing agencies we partnered with left our clients feeling frustrated with the unorganized onboarding process, disconnected from the people they were speaking with, and confused about their next steps. Roots was willing to be flexible and offer on-site onboarding to our agency, and they worked with us to develop an onboarding process that met both of our needs from an administrative perspective, and met the needs of the client. I highly recommend them to any organization/business in need of their staffing services!
