We Get All Four Seasons

Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Yeah, New Englanders get to enjoy all of them. There’s no need to escape to a warm place during the winter when you know that summer is just around the corner. If you think our winters are too harsh, we’ve learned to love them. We drink iced coffees only, even in the winter.

Our Sports Teams

Every other region hates us for it, but it has to be brought up. Our sports teams are the best. We’re home to the Patriots, Celtics, and Red Sox! Let the records speak for themselves!

A Blend of Rural and City Life

Whether you’re more of a city person or more of a country person, New England has something for you. Live up in rural New Hampshire with open fields, family owned farms, and dirt roads. Or, live in the heart of Boston with bright lights, speeding cards, and tiny apartments.

We’re Diverse

New England is a melting pot for many different cultures and ethnicities. When you live here, you’ll get to know people that have different backgrounds and viewpoints than you, which is a good thing. It’s boring to be around the same types of people all of the time.

The Best Seafood

You’ll never get better clam chowder or lobster rolls outside of New England. You’ll enjoy the very best seafood here. No more lobster rolls from McDonald’s!

A Great Place to Raise Kids

New England is an amazing place to raise a family. After all, we are home to some of the best school systems and universities in the world. We’re home to many communities and towns that have been voted the best place to raise children.

There’s An Activity For Every Season

During the summer, the ocean, lakes, and rivers are just a short drive away. In the fall, we enjoy fall foliage drives, hiking, and apple picking. When winter comes, we’re ready to enjoy skiing and snowboarding at some of the best ski spots in the country.

The History

This is where America was born! There are tons of historic sites to see in New England. If you drive through the area, you’ll see that the history is still in the roots, culture, and architecture of our region.

Fun Lingo

“Pahk the cah in Hahvahd yahd!” Our slang is wicked cool. Join in on the language and you’ll have some fun!

There’s Something For Everyone

New England really does have something for everyone, no matter what you’re interested in. We have diverse amounts of restaurants and food. There’s vast amount of entertainment from theatre, to art, to sports. Also, there’s community groups and jobs available for about any interest that you can think of. Anyone can find their happiness here.

If you’re thinking about moving here, you’ll be happy here. Search for the towns and areas that have the resources that will make you the happiest. If you already live here, take advantage of the greatness this region has to offer. Sometimes when you’ve lived here for so long, it’s easy to take New England’s charm for granted.

How to Retain Your Superstar Staff

Nowadays, in the healthcare industry, job turnover is higher than ever.  A study by Compdata Surveys, found the average turnover in healthcare jobs in 2017 was 20.6%, which is a frightening figure for facilities. Healthcare professionals have vast amounts of job opportunities available to them. This drives turnover and forces healthcare facilities to compete with each other to source and retain talent. So, how do you retain your superstar employees? We’ve got the answers!

Create a Positive Culture

Your employees want to work at a place that shares an interest in their own values and goals. Show your employees that you care about what they care about. Lead your staff to reaching a shared goal, and have fun with them on the journey!

Give Extra Job Benefits

Sometimes it’s the little things that matter. Bring free snacks and drinks into the office. Offer half days occasionally. These extra benefits cost little to you, and have a large payoff! Employees will come to work motivated and eager to work.

Develop Relationships With Employees

Each one of your employees has a life outside of work. Celebrate their birthdays, engagements, and other exciting events! If your employees are going through tough times personally, make sure to acknowledge that and try to accommodate their needs to the best of your ability.

Show Your Appreciation

Recognize the little accomplishments. This will inspire your staff to keep pushing to achieve your company’s big goals. People enjoy working for companies that value their employees’ hard work and dedication.

Prevent Burnout Before it Happens

Overworking your staff is not effective in the long run. Burnout prevents your staff from performing at their very best. Make sure you’re providing your staff with the opportunity to get the proper rest that they need. One way to do this is to utilize supplemental staffing services.

Be Open to Feedback

Let your employees speak from their point of view. This will be extremely helpful to you because it will let you know what’s working out, and what’s not.

With these efforts, you’ll prevent the high costs of turnover, sourcing, and hiring. Your staff goes above and beyond to give your patients a positive experience, so give them the job experience that they desire! It’s a win-win for everybody!

In the blink of an eye, 2018 has came and went. And what an eventful year it was for us at Northeast Med Staff! It’s crazy how much we’ve grown within a year! Every day we’ve been working towards perfecting our services for our nurses and for our clients.  Now, as the year is coming to an end, it’s time for us to reflect on what we’ve accomplished and set our goals for 2019.

Expansion into CT, VT, and ME

We traveled across New England, gathering feedback from all of our facilities and were able to grow our operations into Connecticut, Vermont, and Maine! In the New Year, our employees have even more opportunities and shifts to choose from.

Rewarding Our Staff

In every month of 2018, we picked out one nurse that gave it his/her all that month and rewarded them with Employee of the Month, along with some other gifts. Our employees are superstars and we like to make sure that they feel like superstars!

Our recruiter, James, and our compliance manager, Deb got CSP certified. They are now experts on the staffing industry. We’re so proud of them! 

We also hired a staffing coordinator, Breanne, and a new account manager, Stephanie. They have already contributed so much throughout their first few months here.

Internship Program

We began our very first internship program in May! We hired two marketing interns from UMass Lowell, who helped us revamp our social media. We ended up keeping them on our team, part-time throughout their semester!

These values will help guide us in our future ventures in 2019!

Walk to End Alzheimer’s

In September, we raised awareness during Alzheimer’s Month by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. It felt great to be able to give back to the community as a company! We will definitely be giving back in 2019 as well!
