Roscoe Family Picnic 2018: Over Too Soon

Roscoe Family Picnic 2018: Over Too Soon

We came, we ate, we conquered the marble run and then we ate some more, at the always delicious, always entertaining Roscoe annual family picnic at National Grove South on a perfect Chicago summer day.

Roscoe children of all ages welcomed our new clown "Strawberri" at the June 23 event. Strawberri's face painting and balloon making skills were in high demand.

"She had a very long line, from the time she arrived to the time she left," said Human Resources Team Leader Theresa Faulkner. "Everyone loved her."

Team Work & Taquitos

We also introduced a tricky new team-building exercise at this year's event, with the addition of the highly competitive marble game in which six-person teams competed to get a marble through three pieces of track into a cup. It was an exercise in cooperation and patience, but like all of our games, it was well rewarded.

If you're looking for an alternative to the big national uniform providers, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you don't want in a work uniform provider.

Missing uniforms, chronic billing issues and spotty customer service practices drive customers away from their national providers on a regular basis.

But it's one thing to know you're getting unacceptable service and another to figure out how to make sure it doesn't happen again. How do you know your next provider won't leave you pulling your hair out over the same sloppy practices?



Roscoe Earns National Safety Recognition

Roscoe Recertifies for OSHA's SHARP Program

At Roscoe, safety is part of everything we do, from the work uniforms we provide to our customers, to the practices we follow in our own facilities. It's built into our culture.

So when we had the opportunity to take our safety program up to an even higher level, we were all in in.

As a result, Roscoe is now one of only 34 companies in Illinois to have received the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) certification, a voluntary program designed to improve workplace safety practices by providing free guidance from OSHA safety consultants and honoring those companies that take the extra step of undergoing a thorough evaluation of their safety practices.
