Since 2006, LRS Healthcare has placed traveling healthcare professionals in assignments and locations that help unlock their true potential while providing the best patient care possible. However, all of this wouldn’t be possible without our internal employees working behind the scenes to find our travelers the job of their dreams. With the high demand that the healthcare industry continuously experiences, our doors are always open for newcomers.
Along with the tremendous growth that we have experienced at LRS, this prompts the question, “Why work at LRS”? This article highlights our top-ranked reasons from our current internal employees and the key elements of our company culture.
Setting Employees Up for Success
From onboarding and training to “getting on the floor”, LRS has created a company culture that sets our employees up for success. Whether you’ve worked in the healthcare industry before or if it’s brand new to you, we all know how nerve-racking it can be to start at a new company. We make it our priority to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible with the help of our amazing talent acquisition and development teams.
These teams are dedicated to providing each new team member with the training, resources, and informational sessions that dive deep into the various areas we specialize in. Doing so is critical, as we want our recent hires to feel confident in their role and feel like industry experts when it comes time to run solo.
Besides our well-planned training program, something that we pride ourselves on is our benefits. We want our employees to know that we care about their overall well-being and that includes professional, mental, and physical. We provide our employees with comprehensive benefit plans that work for our employees’ individual needs. A well-rounded benefits package includes competitive pay, medical, dental, and vision insurance, a 401k plan, monthly snack allowance, a wellness discount, flexible work schedules, professional development opportunities, and more!
Exceeding Expectations for Employee Engagement and Recognition
Although we are passionate about what we do here at LRS, everything isn’t about work. Employee engagement is at the top of the list when it comes to creating an enviable company culture and maintaining our high employee retention rate. We always take the time to celebrate our individual and company success stories.
Not only is this a great way to recognize each other’s achievements, but it’s a great way to up participation and become acquainted outside of the office walls. Our marketing team and engagement committee work hard to plan inclusive company events that bring people together. Weekly food trucks in the summer, milestone events to celebrate meeting goals, company volleyball tournaments, and more!
Bonusly, a digital peer-to-peer recognition platform, is also a fan favorite here! Every month, employees show their appreciation to their coworkers by giving away points as kudos, which can be saved and later redeemed for gift cards, prizes, donations, and more! When employees need to step away from their desks, our break room is the hot spot for socializing, playing games, and enjoying your favorite snack.
To keep a positive culture and stay lighthearted, we praise and recognize our employees for their achievements while sticking to our “small town” feel. What we mean by this is having the ability to walk into each other’s offices (open door policy), ask for help, bounce ideas off each other from our desks, and even set up a time to meet with our leadership team. Essentially, we appreciate the value and diversity everyone contributes and foster an environment where people will accomplish their goals.
A Company That Cares
Most importantly, our employees love the endless opportunities to make a difference in the healthcare industry and the communities we serve. To our recruiters, it’s not just about placing as many travelers as possible. It’s about doing what’s right to make a positive impact on our healthcare system, starting with improving the quality of life for healthcare professionals. Each relationship our recruiters form with their travelers is special. You could even think of them as career coaches, ready to provide support when needed.
Outside of our office, LRS empowers our employees to make a difference. We make it a priority to leave a positive impact on our community by giving back in any way that we can. We do this by hosting various drives, organizing volunteer opportunities for employees, financially supporting local causes, and so on! Have a cause that you care about? Let us know! We are always open to new ideas on how we can make an impact, whether that’s big or small.
Ready for a challenge? LRS has endless opportunities to grow as a professional. We want our employees to explore their careers and build new skills and are willing to provide the tools to do so. Your voice is equally as important as your neighbor’s. Curious about something? Ask a question! Want to take a stab at a new role? Talk to your manager! Have an idea of how we can improve a process? Share it with us!
In fact, we have various committees and programs that wouldn’t exist without those that brought their ideas to the table. For example, our Mentorship Program, Internship Program, Emerging Professionals Program, and Engagement and Wellness Committees, all provide a great way to get involved internally.
