When you truly believe that your people are your greatest asset, you invest in them accordingly. But how can job seekers tell how a company treats team members before accepting the offer? While we can’t beam you in for a spectral journey through your prospective Consilium career (think “Star-Trek-meets-Ghost-of-Christmas-Future”), we can shed a little light on our approach to maintaining a fun, productive, and supportive work environment.
Here’s how it looked to be part of the Consilium team in Q2 2017:
Consilium Cares—Working for the Greater Good
Increasingly, job seekers want their workplace to offer a means of making a positive impact on the world around them. At Consilium, we work to strengthen our community through the work of Consilium Cares, our company philanthropy program.
On April 22, Consilium Cares again participated in the Red Balloon Run and Ride benefit for Children’s Health. The Run and Ride offers 5K options for people of all ages and fitness levels, with alternatives that include a family-friendly “fun run” and walking and cycling events.
On June 10th, we also continued our volunteer partnership with the North Texas Food Bank. During our shift, Consilium Cares volunteers helped bag more than 10,000 (!) meals for senior citizens in the Dallas area.
Administrative Professionals’ Day
April 26th was National Administrative Professionals’ Day, a great opportunity to show our appreciation for Megan, whose selflessness, customer service skills, and professionalism are second to none. On top of her normal work duties, Megan always manages to give a warm, genuine welcome to every person who steps foot into our lobby.
One of Consilium’s most popular social events is the annual excursion to a Texas Rangers game. This year, we attended the Rangers’ final game on May 13th against the Oakland Athletics (and certainly as a result of our patronage, the Rangers won 6-5—you’re welcome, guys!).
Wear Blue Day
Men’s Health Week, an initiative designed to increase awareness of health issues affecting men and boys, was held on June 12-18th this year. Consilium joined in by participating in the international #WearBlueDay on Friday, June 16th.
Kudos to our Operations team, which won the company-wide “#ShowUsYourBlue” contest this year—way to go Ops!
Each month, we hold a WIN meeting to recognize and celebrate individual, team, and company milestones. Standard awards include recognition of standout team member performance in client sales, recruiting, account management, and operations.
Congratulations to our three team members who earned promotions this quarter:
- Sarah Chapman—Risk, Privileging, and Quality Assurance Manager
- Tamara Ratigan—Operations Manager
- Matt Tate—Senior Client Sales Consultant, Primary Care North
National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day
June 6th is National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day, and boy did our recruiting consultants deserve the shout-out! It is due in large part to the efforts of our recruiters that Consilium is projecting a year-over-year growth rate of 43% for 2017.
