Omaha, NE (PRWEB) May 14, 2008
Omaha, NE - Healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions (http://www. medicalsolutions. com) is proud to be named the winner of the Best Places to Work in Omaha (http://www. omahachamber. org/news/NewsDetail. aspx? StoryID=11291) by The Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, one of the top honors for an Omaha business. Employees throughout Omaha voted on the best companies to work for and Medical Solutions topped the list of companies with 50-250 local employees in just its first year entering the competition.
President and CEO Scott Anderson is pleased the hard work of the company is being recognized, but is more proud of the team that has been built at Medical Solutions. "We are excited Medical Solutions is a company employees are happy to work for, but more importantly we are truly appreciative of each and every individual that makes up the Medical Solutions team. This award is really about them," Anderson said.
One the fastest growing companies in the healthcare staffing industry, Medical Solutions is a company built on the philosophy that when employees are treated well, financial success will follow. For Medical Solutions, treating employees well means putting them in the best position to succeed. They do this by giving the individuals the room to learn and grow and the resources they need to thrive. Anderson and co-owner Dale Williams believe empowering employees to be their best is what makes Medical Solutions a great place to work; whether it is providing an in-office concierge to handle life's little chores or a relaxing break room, equipped with an Xbox, foosball table and pinball machine, where the employees can unwind.
Aline Quick, a Travel Nurse Recruiter at Medical Solutions agrees, "I consider it a privilege to work for such a great company, always willing to show appreciation toward their employees. I know I am valued and supported, allowing me to use my abilities to grow and advance within the company."
Another major factor towards Medical Solutions' success in building a great company is their ability to find and hire great employees. Medical Solutions uses a careful hiring process to identify top talent with qualities and attitudes that match their core values of being passionate, intelligent, inspiring and honest communicators. By placing an emphasis on referrals and personally interviewing every prospective employee, Anderson and Williams make sure each new hire will be a great fit to the Medical Solutions family. Not only does this process create a great team environment, but also builds loyalty and consistency as evidenced by very little staff turnover.
In addition to putting employees in a position to succeed, the company plans numerous events for the staff that are not only fun, but also promote team building. Guided by the company Fun Force, with events ranging from paintball to riverboat rides, Medical Solutions has crafted a culture of fun and inspiration. The company's success is due to a motivated staff working to make sure they meet the highest standards and help make Medical Solutions more than just another healthcare staffing company. "Medical Solutions empowers their employees in a positive way to be passionate, respectful and excited about what they do each day. It's truly an honor to be a part of this team," states Christy Johnston, Medical Solutions Team Manager.
Medical Solutions has learned that an environment of recognition, appreciation and empowerment with its staff translates to quality relationships with its traveling healthcare professionals and client hospitals. With the need for traveling nurses on the rise it is important the company makes the nurses' transitions to a new career as comfortable as possible. The great teamwork at the company eliminates the worry for the travelers and hospital staffing professionals, allowing them to focus solely on providing patients with excellent care.
The combination of quality employees and a servant leadership model is a large part of why Medical Solutions is the fifth fastest growing company in Nebraska. Medical Solutions grew more than 60 percent last year and is on track to continue that growth well into the future. The company, which was first formed in 1997 has grown to employ 102 people in its corporate office and is currently ranked No. 625 on the list of Inc. 5,000's fastest growing companies in 2007. Looking to improve on that rank in 2008 with revenues just shy of $50 million for the year, Medical Solution's future is bright.
"As excited as I am to be a part of what this company is right now, I'm even more excited about our future. Every employee at Medical Solutions plays a vital role in where we'll be tomorrow, and the fact that everyone buys into that idea is inspiring," said Steve Seitner, Medical Solutions Team Manager.
