Roeslein Named Among Best Places to Work in Saint Louis

Roeslein & Associates, Inc. has been named one of the Best Places to Work (BPTW) in St. Louis by the Saint Louis Business Journal. This is the second time the company has achieved this award.

Over 250+ companies competed for this award and only 85 were recognized as a BPTW. This achievement is based on surveys completed by employees about their experiences with their company. Each company is evaluated and measured on communication, management structure, benefits, teamwork and several other factors important to employee satisfaction.

Human Resources Director, Sarah Davidson commented, “2018 was a great year for our employee-owners; by focusing on our core values, we have been able to perpetuate our family-oriented and employee-ownership culture. As we continue to grow, it’s of the upmost importance that we maintain this culture and continue to be an employer people are proud to work for.”

Roeslein & Associates saw its workforce increase by an astonishing 52% in 2018. This amount of growth was achieved organically by adding 58 new positions along with the acquisition of Pride Conveyance Systems and Roeslein Poland, formerly known as MCS Technology. Together, these acquisitions welcomed 160 new employees into the Roeslein family.

As the company continues to grow, it keeps its ethos – Be Happy, Remain Humble, Stay Hungry – at the center of its focus. Roeslein ensures its employees and their families have a competitive and generous benefits package; including employee-ownership (ESOP) / retirement plan and above average match, profit sharing, 75-90% coverage of health insurance, extra holidays, early releases, a wellness program, tuition reimbursements, gift matching, business casual atmosphere, and more.

“Roeslein is like no other company I’ve worked for. Not only does it offer outstanding benefits, but Roeslein’s executives know employees by name, they take time to reach out to those who are traveling and ask them how everything is going, and they show immense compassion by always contacting employees who have fallen on difficult times. Roeslein’s executives truly care about its employees and in today’s workforce, that can be hard to come by,” said Meranda Ory, Roeslein’s Sales & Marketing Manager.

Over the last several years Roeslein has taken many strides towards achieving its vision of becoming a global leader in delivering offsite construction solutions to its clients. President & COO Brian Sneed commented, “Our achievements have allowed us to increase our workforce, diversify our customer base, grow our geographic reach, and increase our product offerings. These are huge accomplishments for any company. The true accomplishment here is that with each of these growth initiatives, came new opportunities to ensure that our employees were taken care of. In 2019 we are strategically positioned to implement a talent development program to guarantee our employees can grow in their positions and allow us to continue to hire within as our company continues to grow allowing us to continue meeting the demands of our clients.”

Carrying this momentum forward, Roeslein forecasts to add at least 50 new employees amongst its seven locations this year. This rate of growth is on trend for Roeslein who, since 2010, has more than quadrupled its workforce and averaged an employee growth rate of 24% year over year with four of these years exceeding 30%.
