Why It's a Great Employer

"Rootsters," as the employees of this Sylvania, Ohio-based firm are affectionately called, use artistic expression to help clients develop "Learning Maps" to envision their future. They also draw a portrait of every new hire, showing his/her personal interests; the pictures are displayed on a "family tree" in the front lobby. When the recession hit, senior leaders told Rootsters they would pass up net income for 2009 to preserve jobs, and they sent out monthly updates and held small-group meetings to keep everyone apprised of the business situation.
