Conexus MedStaff has been recognized with an honorable mention in this year’s American Staffing Association Care Awards for its Conexus Connects initiative. This biennial award, hosted by the American Staffing Association (ASA), recognizes outstanding social responsibility initiatives within the staffing and recruiting industry.
Moving to a new country can be an overwhelming process for international healthcare professionals. In addition to the challenges of adjusting to a new culture and way of life, they must also navigate differences within the U.S. healthcare system. With this overarching theme, Conexus Connects strives to help our employees establish and connect with a support system while celebrating and giving back to the U.S. communities served, as well as the communities that many of our healthcare professionals fondly call home. For example, this year we partnered with the Elijeko Foundation and National Blood Service in Ghana to provide Basic Life Support (BLS) / Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training free of cost for current and aspiring healthcare professionals.
While it is a priority to support organizations that focus on the health and well-being of individuals, we also empower each of our team members to give back to their community in a way that is valuable to them. Conexus MedStaff’s Community Giving Day initiative encourages employees to volunteer in their local community with a cause special to them. Our CEO Andrew Moreton recently completed the UK's national Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the three highest peaks of England, Scotland and Wales in 24 hours, to raise money for the Melanoma Fund - a charity he is passionate about.
“All across the country, staffing and recruiting companies are giving back to people, communities, and causes in ways that are changing lives and improving society,” said Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at ASA. “Through their innovative and compassionate programs, our Care Award honorees exemplify some of the best examples of the positive societal impact that businesses can make when they embrace social responsibility as a key priority and company value.”
Conexus MedStaff is passionate about changing lives and solving healthcare staffing challenges. Committed to going the extra mile for our healthcare professionals, we make it a priority to always support and develop their career and growth. While our initiatives are part of our day-to-day service, we are proud to continue expanding offerings and areas of support for our healthcare professionals. We continually look for opportunities to support and embrace the spirit of Conexus MedStaff across the globe.
