Q: Greg - I heard there are some recent changes made regarding Compact Licenses and a lot of the information I am getting is conflicting! Can you help me make sense of what is going on?
Convergence Medical Staffing is FIVE YEARS OLD this month! WOW… just like the old adage, “time flies when you’re having fun”, we cannot believe that five years has passed already. Having built and sold a very successful Medical Travel company in the not too distant past, the Convergence Management team felt positioned to get our new “baby” up and running quickly. After a whirlwind set-up of office space, technology, and software selections, hiring of office staff began – with many of our former colleagues asking to join the new team.
Once we were ready to start making placements, it was only a short time before we were then qualified to become Joint Commission Certified. After Certification our client base started to build solidly and our cadre of travelers were exposed to more opportunities in more states. To date, we have client facilities in all 50 states, an extremely high retention rate with our travelers, and high satisfaction rates (100%) with both clients and travelers.
We have been deliberate with providing exceptional benefits and continue to add to them yearly. Currently we offer paid major medical effective day one of employment, dental, short and long term disability, an IRA account, group life insurance, additional life insurance for our travelers and their family, six bonus programs, up to $2k and our newest addition, a Paid Time Off program.
Not only had it been fulfilling to see the tremendous growth of the organization, but to see that our efforts and hard work have paid off for hundreds of travel healthcare professionals, many who are still employed with our company. WE are all practically family!
I’ve been asked what our secret is for attracting and keeping our travelers. The answer is simple- “We’re honest and upfront, we care too much about their careers and safety, and we are available to our travelers 24/7. On top of that, we pay and reward them well with incredible benefits and individual attention.” Who wouldn’t stay?
Thank you to each and every one of our travelers! It’s you who deserve the credit for our wild success, with your exceptional representation of our brand. It’s because of your actions that we all get to live our company motto: “YOUR unique talent, OUR distinctive approach, ONE singular path”!
