Nurses – whether they work in a hospital or office setting – are dedicated beyond reproach. They are tireless advocates for their patients and work hard to keep patient-centered care at the forefront – all while juggling many different roles involved with being such a visible member of a healthcare team.
The professional community celebrates National Nurses Week each year on May 6-12 to honor their hard work. It’s our hope at Supplemental Health Care, however, to make nurses feel celebrated not just this week but each day of their careers.
As one of the leaders in healthcare staffing, we are committed to creating a culture that highlights and rewards the significant accomplishments and vital roles our employees play each day. To that end, we’re pleased to offer “Our Rewards” – a points-based recognition program that allows our talent to choose from a wide variety of gifts and merchandise.
Along with “Our Rewards” efforts, we also celebrate with a special theme for the year – this year its #betterperks – highlighting the selfless nature of nurses and that they are driven by the fulfillment and gratification that comes from making a difference in people’s lives. This year’s theme can be seen in a special video in support of nurses and in recognition of National Nurses Week. To view, please go to: Nurses Week 2015.
It’s just another way that Supplemental Health Care emphasizes the special role nurses play in our lives. We are honored that they are a part of our family, and we want to make sure their time and commitment does not go unnoticed.
Being a nurse is a challenging undertaking, and it takes a special personality to succeed in the profession. We realize this, and we constantly are evaluating our company culture to ensure we recognize the work nurses do and the contributions they make not only to Supplemental Health Care but also to make lives better for patients.
How fitting is it that the conclusion of National Nurses Week falls each year on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12. She is credited as the forerunner to professional nursing and dedicated herself to serving others. It’s a trait, I’m sure you’ll agree, that all nurses today embody, as well.
Please join me in honoring our nurses – not just during this special week of celebration, but each and every day.
