Medical Solutions Named “Best Staffing Firm to Work For” in the US

Omaha, NE – March 14, 2013 – Medical Solutions announced today that it was voted 2013’s “Best Staffing Firm to Work For” in the midsize category (51-200 employees) by Staffing Industry Analysts, the global advisor on contingent work.

Staffing Industry Analysts’ president, Barry Asin, said, “This award is a testament to each company’s ability to establish and encourage positive business culture as measured by an anonymous survey of their own employees.”

Christy Johnston, Medical Solutions’ chief people officer, said, “We are passionate about creating an exceptional work environment that attracts and retains exceptional partners. It’s the reason we are growing at such a fast pace.” Medical Solutions is among the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies and is one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies in the Travel Nursing and Allied Health industry.

“Employees who join Medical Solutions from other staffing companies immediately notice the difference,” Johnston said. Amanda Anson, a client manager who joined Medical Solutions in 2012 from another firm said, “There’s a night and day difference in morale. People are genuinely happy to be here.”

Ross Fuhr, a career consultant who left to take a sales job in a different industry, recently returned to Medical Solutions. “I didn’t fully recognize what a special place this is to work until I left. I appreciate the open and honest communication at all levels of this organization. It is a fun place to come to work and I am proud to be part of the Medical Solutions team.”

As an example of the firm’s creative and fun workplace, Johnston cited—“Culture Club”—a voluntary forum that empowers employees to participate directly in enhancing a culture that welcomes newcomers and infuses core values into everyday life at work.

“It’s a simple philosophy, but it’s very powerful. Happier recruiters mean happier nurses, and happier nurses mean happier hospital clients,” said Craig Meier, Medical Solutions’ president. “We are committed to being the number one nurse traveler staffing agency. And our culture will take us there.”

More than 100 staffing firms participated in Staffing Industry Analysts’ annual survey. Staffing Industry Analysts announced the results of the “Best Staffing Firms to Work For” survey, sponsored by Monster, at its annual Executive Forum, Feb. 25-28 in Orlando, Fla.
