If there’s anything we advocate in our approach to company culture, it’s the concept of “work hard, play hard.” Here’s how it looked to be part of the Consilium team in Q3 2017:
Fourth of July
Each year, we celebrate the Fourth of July with a company potluck (with barbecue provided by Consilium) and informal patriotic attire, during which time we all look a bit like Captain America for the day.
Representing Consilium From California to Louisiana
We had quite the number of jet-setters this summer: during Q3, we sent representatives to San Diego, San Antonio, and New Orleans to represent Consilium at annual conventions that included the NACHC Community Health Institute, Psych Congress, and AAFP Family Medicine Experience.
(Even better, we acquired this stunning portrait of Vice President of National Accounts Hamilton Doty and Regional Vice President of Client Sales Billy Bowden. This might just end up on our Christmas cards.)
Q3 WIN Celebrations
Consilium holds a monthly WIN meeting to recognize individual, team, and company milestones, of which there were many this quarter!

Kicking Labor Day Weekend Off Right
After a record-breaking month in August, company partners announced a surprise early release on Friday, September 1st, to jump-start the Labor Day weekend. To keep productivity—and towers of empty pizza boxes—high, we also were treated to a company-wide pizza party for lunch on Thursday afternoon (rumors abound of team eating contests, but our lips are sealed).
Business Casual Attire—What NOT to Do
We embrace a business casual dress code at Consilium. In a nutshell, that means sharp enough to present as professionals and casual enough that we don’t feel like we’re attending an 8-5 Easter Sunday service. On Fridays, however, we get to wear jeans—just make sure not to emulate director of recruiting Ricky “Two-Shoes” Moses:
National Locum Tenens Week
August 14-18, 2017, marked the first ever National Locum Tenens Week, which recognizes the contributions of temporary healthcare providers across the nation. For our participation in the event, we took to the streets of downtown Dallas to interview passerby on their knowledge of locum tenens.
Locum Tenens Week, Day 1: What IS Locum Tenens, Anyway?
Never heard of locum tenens? You aren’t alone!
Locum Tenens Week, Day 3: “Wait, What Did You Say?”
It’s “locum tenens” as you’ve never heard it before (seriously, they pulled out all the phonetic stops).
Locum Tenens Week, Day 5: The Future of Locum Tenens
(Disclaimer: contrary to what our entertaining volunteer Grant thinks, locum tenens has absolutely nothing to do with alcoholic beverages.)
Women in Leadership
Consilium embraces a company commitment to invest in the personal and professional growth of each team member. In Q3, that included a presentation by founding partner and regional vice president Amy Gentile, who spoke on her journey to Consilium, some of the realities of being a woman in business, and how the company helps support Consilium women as they seek to advance in their careers.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which caused unprecedented destruction right down I-45, Consilium Cares was able to gather four large boxes (plus one small box stuffed full of baby supplies) of donation items from Consilium team members. A huge “thank you” goes out to everyone who pitched in to help, on behalf of your Consilium Cares team!
