Omaha, NE (PRWEB) June 26, 2009 -- Healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions has landed on the Best Places to Work in Omaha list for the second straight year. The list is sponsored by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and Baird Holm LLP and is considered one of the top honors for an Omaha business. Employees throughout Omaha voted on the best companies to work for and Medical Solutions was among the top 5 companies with 50-250 local employees.
Scott Anderson, President and CEO of Medical Solutions was excited the company has been recognized both years they've taken part in the survey. "We are honored to be included on this list for the second straight year," Anderson said. "We strive to foster a culture where employees enjoy working and feel appreciated. It's because of our great employees that we're able to achieve awards such as this."
As 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, Wii, ping pong table, foosball table and pinball machine, where the employees can unwind.
"Medical Solutions has a fresh and vibrant culture that values our employees. Especially when times are tough, we try to amplify the laughs and fun and focus on letting our people know how much they are appreciated," noted Christy Johnston, the company's Chief People Officer. "We have always felt that if you put your people first, the business will follow and we're a true testament of that."
Johnston's position as the Chief People Officer was created with input from the result of the employees' feedback from last year's Best Places to Work in Omaha survey. As CPO, she oversees the development and management of the company's people programs including hiring, training, development, recognition, appreciation and benefits to support and preserve the company's employee-centric culture.
In addition to encouraging employee input, 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.
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. The great teamwork at the company eliminates unneeded stress for the travelers and the hospital staffing professionals they work with, allowing them to focus solely on providing quality patient care.
The combination of quality employees and a servant leadership model is a large part of why Medical Solutions is the fastest growing company in Nebraska and one of the fastest growing private healthcare staffing firms in the country. Last year alone, Medical Solutions grew more than 43 percent with revenue of over $43 million. The company, which was first formed in 1997, recently moved its corporate headquarters to another location in Omaha effectively doubling its office space to accommodate the growth and is currently ranked No. 472 on the list of Inc. 500's fastest growing companies in 2008.
