2017 Inc. 500
By Rich Smith, 08-16-2017
For the second year in a row, Atlas MedStaff has been recognized for our growth. Not only are we the Inc 500's fastest growing privately held healthcare staffing company in the country for the second year in a row, but we are also 308th fastest growing privately held company in the country. These are great accolades, but how do you write about them when it's not in our nature to talk about ourselves?
When this all started, we wanted to create an environment where hard work, mutual respect, and a deep desire to succeed drove us every day to be the absolute best we could be. It wasn't easy. There were some dark days, but that just drove us to work harder. We created a place we loved coming to every day. A place where we weren't just co-workers, we were family and cared about each other. Our flat business model meant that we all worked for the good of the nurses and hospitals, not because it could mean a promotion someday but because it was the right thing to do. Staying privately held means we don't have to report to private equity firms that only want to see a return on their investment. We control our destiny. We write our own story. We succeed or fail together, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
More important than all of that, we wouldn't be anywhere without all the Atlas nurses that are working in our partner facilities. We are NOTHING without all of you. When we say #whereyoubelong, we mean it. This recognition belongs to each and every one of you as much as it does to us. Your loyalty, hard work, and dedication to your profession are key to our success. Your passion drives us to be the absolute best we can for all of you.
Here's a breakdown of the details. All this information came directly from Inc Magazine:
• Atlas MedStaff was named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies for the second year in a row. • Atlas MedStaff ranked number 308th on the 2017 list, and 46th on the 2016 list. • We are the fastest growing healthcare staffing company in the country for the second year in a row. • We are the fastest growing company in Nebraska for the second year in a row. • Atlas MedStaff ranks as the fastest growing staffing company in Nebraska since the Inc 5000 started in 1982. • Atlas MedStaff ranks as the fifth fastest growing company in Nebraska in the history of the Inc 5000.
While all this is awesome, it doesn't change anything. We are still who we are. We still operate the same today as we did before this list was published. Greed doesn't fuel our placements. Our pay packages are still amongst the best in the industry. No one here is buying new expensive cars or outlandish houses. If anything, getting recognized like this will ground us even more. We'll make this list next year, and the year after that. And we'll still be the same company with the same morals and values.
