Quarter 2 | 2022
TOP 5: Updates from Q2
Roers is excited to announce a new Employee Assistance Program! This new platform will provide a 24/7 support program to assist employees with the questions, issues, and concerns that face us in life.
The support through Lifeworks is available to the employee, their spouse/significant other, and any children living in the household.
When going to the Lifeworks website, employees will log in using the generic company username and password provided, to access the educational materials. Employees can also set up personal (private) access to the website by clicking on “Get CareNow”.
All use of the website and any 1:1 support an employee (and others) receives is confidential and specific. Personal information is not shared with Roers.
We encourage everyone to explore this new resource! Please reach out to Lisa Aman, Payroll & Benefits Specialist if you have any questions.
2. minot fire department groundbreaking
“The project started with ground breaking. There was a nice public turn out including the mayor, council members, and a good number of fire fighters.
At the time of the ground breaking the site pad had been built up, immediately following the site utilities started , water sewer , cutting open the street to tap in .
Currently all footings have been poured, all walls have been formed with MEPs working on sleeves through the walls, We will pour entire foundation tomorrow.
I would anticipate the project will go well built into a one year schedule. Most of the schedule revolves around the difficulty of material availability, and shipping. The fire department is very excited about the project, my understanding was it was a hard fight for approval in that neighborhood and receive funding. When it was finally ready to go the pandemic hit, and shut things down on the city level. Not knowing if the funds would still be available in those unknown times .
The department heads have asked if they can walk the site on a regular basis, and have been told they are welcome to do so. We feed off of their enthusiasm. It will be a functional, aesthetically pleasing building.”

3. RPMR: Team Training fun
This quarter, we brought together the RPM team (residential and commercial) for some safety training! The team spent time taking a self-defense course here at the office, doing some team building activities and hanging out with marketing, and they also had another safety based training with our safety manager.
This was a great opportunity to get the whole team together for some literal hands-on training to help keep them safe when they are on-site at various properties.

If you attended the All Company Meeting at the end of June, you know that we recently received a little bit of information regarding the townhomes that will be going up right next to The View, Newman Faith Based Housing, and the St Paul Newman Center.
