PrideStaff Houston (Northwest) Field Associate, Jermaine Rogers, Named National Temporary Employee of the Year

February 24, 2023

To recognize his hard work, positive attitude, and indomitable spirit, PrideStaff, a nationally franchised staffing organization, is pleased to name Jermaine Rogers its National Temporary Employee of the Year. Presented at PrideStaff’s Annual Conference, an in-person, three-day event held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, this award was given to the most outstanding field associate working on assignment through PrideStaff between August 1, 2021 and July 31, 2022.

After his first assignment for PrideStaff Houston (Northwest) ended in March of 2022, Jermaine struggled to find work and eventually became homeless. However, even though he was sleeping in his car and working odd jobs to survive, Jermaine diligently stayed in touch with the Houston (Northwest) team while he earned his Class A CDL. Jermaine’s determination to succeed, despite challenging circumstances, led Branch Manager, Amanda Hatch to connect him with a full-time direct hire job as an over-the-road driver.

“Jermaine’s determination to get back on his feet and his trust in PrideStaff to help him is truly inspiring,” said Troyer. “Although he faced extreme hardships, he remained positive and focused on taking the next steps in his life. Our team was unaware of the extent of his struggle until he shared his story much later, and we are humbled by his belief in us. Jermaine never lost faith that PrideStaff (Northwest) could help him find work—and we’re thrilled with the success he’s enjoying due to the opportunity we were able to present to him.”

“Trust the process takes on a whole new meaning when applied to Jermaine,” continued Troyer. He’s been tremendously successful as an over-the-road driver—which is no surprise since he’s determined to get the job done. Jermaine’s story serves as an important reminder that hard work and trust in PrideStaff’s proven processes can lead to a rewarding career and a brighter future.”

When interviewed, Jermaine expressed his gratitude for the team at PrideStaff. “I remember the day PrideStaff called to tell me about the job offer, like it was yesterday. I was living in my Honda Civic and barely making enough money to get a hotel room so I could provide a safe environment for my son when I picked him up on weekends,” stated Rogers. “I kept in touch with the PrideStaff Houston (Northwest) office every day because I knew they could help me put my new CDL to work. Sure enough, they called and said they had a great job for me—and they were right. Thanks to PrideStaff, I’m now employed with an amazing company with excellent benefits. I’m so thankful I can provide the quality of life that my son deserves and work toward a better future for both of us!”

“Jermaine is proof that the work we do every day changes lives,” said PrideStaff Co-CEO, Tammi Heaton. “Even during his toughest times, he stayed positive and continued to work with the Houston Northwest office to launch his career in truck driving. He is one of the most steadfast, professional individuals I’ve ever met, a true brand ambassador who embodies PrideStaff’s values. By giving his best effort each day, Jermaine has proven to be a real asset whose attitude and work ethic have yielded great results for our client. It’s my honor to present such a remarkable individual with this award; he’s a true inspiration and a shining example of how hard work, a winning attitude, and the right staffing partner create lasting success—and improve lives.”
