A little more than a year ago, Julian Francisco owned a small IT business. But after learning about CHG’s culture and talking to one of Foundation Medical Staffing‘s top recruiters, he took a leap of faith and applied for a job at CHG. He hasn’t looked back.
“This is the most impactful and greatest experience I have ever had with a company,” says Julian, who is now a recruitment coordinator for Foundation Medical Staffing. “In just one year, I have grown so much as an individual — and it is solely related the opportunities that CHG provides.”
Here, Julian shares some insight on working here and the impact it has had on his life:
How did you hear about CHG, and what made you want to apply?
I heard a lot about the culture and found out there was an opening. I reached out to my friend, Jordan Belt, a top recruiter at Foundation Medical Staffing, and he encouraged me to apply. After some research and prayer, I was convinced that this could be an amazing opportunity.
What can you tell me about your first day?
Honestly, it was a little overwhelming. I remember being cold and nervous, trying to take in this foreign information and terminology about the dialysis industry and our sales process. It was an unfamiliar field but everyone was very encouraging and helpful. My co-workers were very inviting, and I recall feeling confident that this was going to be a great place to work.
What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy working with people. I get to play a special part in people’s personal and professional lives. I feel a great sense of responsibility that through these relationships, I also get to be a part of helping communities in need.
How has working at CHG compared to your other work experience?
Although there are some similarities in the day-to-day work, CHG has been an experience unlike any other. I have never worked in a place that has such commitment to personal growth. I also am humbled to work alongside my fellow co-workers. At every level, relationships are valued and honored. It is really a blessing.
What has been your most memorable experience so far?
It is hard to choose just one! There are fun things like ping pong tournaments and turkey bowling, but out of everything, I really enjoyed going to the regional food bank with my office during United Way Week. Experiencing my whole office taking time to sort portions of fresh produce for families in need in our community — and our company paying us and supporting us to be there — has really set the stage for how dedicated to people we are as a company.
How have you seen CHG’s core value of Putting People First in action?
From our corporate leadership team down through my direct sales manager and co-workers, I have seen a genuine dedication to this core value. Whether it is helping me develop a new routine for success or supporting me when I have to take care of my family, I know that I am valued as a person.
Do you have any advice for new CHG employees?
Humbly commit yourselves to the techniques, skills and resources that your leadership and team provide. It works. By remaining teachable and working hard, you can join in the success of an amazing company.
Anything else you want to share?
I am so very thankful for my position here. When I joined CHG, I was coming out of a rough financial season. Working for CHG has helped me grow in character and create a stable foundation for my wife Sheila and daughter Selah.
