When David Lamb, associate QM coordinator at CHG in Salt Lake City, Utah, first worked for CHG, he appreciated the unique culture here, but it wasn't until he left the company to be a nurse that he realized how lucky he had been to work for a company with such an emphasis on Putting People First.
"The culture in general is honestly the best thing about CHG," David says. "The Putting People First mantra is really a great idea in theory, but it takes incredible people to implement it and live by it in order for it to come alive."
David says that as a nurse, he never experienced the same level of appreciation and sense of satisfaction he had enjoyed at CHG. And he certainly didn't enjoy the same benefits!
"The benefits offered at CHG are huge," he says. "In the time I spent working as a floor nurse, I was paying almost four times as much for inferior insurance coverage for my family. My former benefits team did a great job getting such a great package of benefits for us and constantly adjusting them to meet the needs of our company."
David didn't stay away for long, however, and is now back at CHG, pre-screening applications in the quality management department.
"I feel like I'm really part of the process of CHG's overall goal of staffing locum tenens," David says. "Working in benefits was great, because we felt like we were part of what attracted people to work for CHG, but I never really knew what the process was when it came to finding a potential provider or client and providing a service for them. I now understand what my part is in that process, and feel like I contribute to it. Besides that, I work with a great bunch of people who work so well together and support each other both professionally and personally. They're awesome!"
Read David's story in his own words!
I knew it would be difficult for me to leave CHG when the time came for me to work as a full-time nurse, and it definitely was. For about a year I worked three to four nursing jobs, sometimes simultaneously, in an effort to recreate the work/life balance that I felt while working at CHG. I loved working with the people I came in contact with, but there was always that memory in my mind of what it was like to work for CHG. The level of appreciation, caring and overall satisfaction that I felt while working at CHG simply couldn't be matched. I always kept an eye on what was going on at CHG, usually by updates on the CHG page on Facebook, and I was always happy and proud of everyone who still worked here for the accomplishments they made. When I saw a position open at CHG on the quality management team that would require the use of my nursing license, I jumped at the opportunity to apply. When I came back to CHG as a full-time employee, it felt like coming home again. I've been welcomed back by everyone, even the CEO, CFO and COO. I know that I've made the right decision with regards to my career by coming back to CHG, and I have no intention of trying to find elsewhere what I already know that I have right here.
