Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Medical Solutions, a leading national healthcare staffing company that places Travel Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, placed third in the second annual Staffing Industry Analyst’s 2012 Best Staffing Firms to Work For among firms with 51 to 200 employees. Staffing Industry Analysts revealed the winners at last week’s 21st annual Staffing Industry Executive Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This was the first time Medical Solutions has taken part in the Staffing Industry Analyst’s survey which included over 140 different staffing companies from various industries. Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, Neb.-based firm, conducted the research and rankings for Staffing Industry Analysts, which included internal employees.
Staffing Industry Analysts, the global advisor on contingent work, announced the results of the Best Staffing Firm to Work for survey at its annual Executive Forum. More than 17,000 staffing firm employees participated. “This is an exhaustive survey we undertook in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, with the goal to understand how employees of staffing companies felt about the firms they work for,” stated Jon Osborne, VP of Research, at Staffing Industry Analysts. "A new feature this year, we also surveyed temporary employees who were placed by these staffing firms,” continued Osborne.
At Medical Solutions, success is a direct result of putting employees first and treating them well. The company constantly offers training and sends employees to workshops and conferences to help improve their skills within their range of duties. The environment at the company is comprised of empowering, recognizing and appreciating its employees helps create and maintain strong relationships with its client hospitals and traveling healthcare professionals. The staff also takes part in many monthly outings and events which have included going to the movies, bowling and other team building activities. Employees are also invited to enjoy various amenities such as a fully stocked kitchen for a quick lunch or challenge one another to friendly games of pool, foosball and pinball. Empowering their employees to be the best is a big part as to why the company is regarded as a great place to work.
“With any company, the people make it a great place to work and we are fortunate to have wonderful, caring, fun people,” said Craig Meier, Senior Vice President. “So many friendships and business relationships are solidified simply because we all are here to help each other succeed and have fun doing it! This award represents every single person at Medical Solutions. Being recognized because of our employee’s feedback is a great indicator that we’ve created a work environment that leads to happiness and career success… and we couldn’t be more proud!”
The nationwide survey involved a 40-question survey that measured 10 key employee engagement categories. The results and subsequent rankings are based entirely on employee feedback, and winners are chosen based on the highest overall composite score.
“Medical Solutions is thrilled to be recognized as a 2012 Best Staffing Firm to Work For,” said Christy Johnston, Chief People Officer. “From the beginning, we have focused on creating a positive culture where our people feel valued and recognized for their efforts. We truly believe that by setting the example and use of our servant leadership style supports a work environment where people want to provide the best experience for our customers, both inside and outside our walls. Our company is where it is today, first and foremost because of our extraordinary people!”
