The lace-free, water-resistant alternative is making waves throughout the healthcare industry — and for good reason. Some say the lightweight and practical sneaker feels like a “snug hug,” even after miles on the job.

Here’s How RTG Medical Celebrated Being Named One of the “Best Places to Work in Omaha” for the Third Year in a Row

"BPTW-1

RTG Medical has been voted Best Places to Work in Omaha by Baird Holm and the Omaha Chamber of Commerce for the third year in a row! To be considered for this award, employees answer survey questions regarding RTG’s work environment, culture, management, and opportunities for professional growth. Winning this award for the third year in a row represents how each employee values the culture that makes RTG one of the “Best Places to Work in Omaha”.

So, how did the company celebrate such a big award? With a field trip, of course. Employees kicked off the day by chartering to the awards luncheon in Omaha, then enjoyed an afternoon of games and mingling at Lucky Bucket Brewery! If you haven’t been to the brewery yet, we highly recommend it for group outings.

"BPTW-22

What makes RTG such a fun and unique place to work? Let some of our employees tell you!

Shelby Cameron, Senior Recruiter, says, “I feel RTG Medical is the best place to work because of the atmosphere. I enjoy all of the fun events RTG is able to offer year round and the energy RTG employees bring to the work place every day which gets me excited to come into work. I also enjoy how tight knit RTG is. I have a home away from home and I love that about my work!”

"BPTW-49

Others describe RTG as a company that genuinely cares and values its employees to encourage them to work hard and create an environment that is positive. They love being rewarded for the hard work with fun outings, delicious food, and prizes.

"BPTW-33/

Emily Kimmell, Credentialing Specialist, says, “I love working here because of the collaborative environment. There is cooperation and shared goals all revolving around helping each other grow in the professional lives. Everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to work toward our goals. The culture here at RTG is something that really drives a positive work environment.”

"BPTW-37

TJ Butler, Senior Recruiter, describes RTG as the best because he’s never worked at a place that genuinely puts people first.

“From the top down, RTG Medical understands the significance of its people, and that culture reflects on how we treat our traveling medical professionals.  I feel like we are one big family at RTG Medical. That culture and mindset makes it natural to carry it over to how we treat our Travelers.  Personally, I treat each and every Traveler I come across as a teammate/family member and not just a number because that’s how we are treated internally at RTG Medical.  I’ve been around the block a time or two but RTG Medical truly is a special place to be apart of.  When you hear people talking about the grass being greener on the other side, the other side is RTG Medical, and I can’t imagine a place where the grass could possibly be greener!”

"BPTW-9

RTG is proud to be named one of the Best Places To Work in Omaha for the third year in a row. We are thankful to be a part of a community that recognizes companies that are trying to build a better workplace and work to create cultures that put their employees first.

A special thank you to our amazing photographer, Elliot Janssen, for capturing the day of RTG celebrating its employees!

RTG Medical’s Nurses Week Campaign Receives Marketing Award for Second Year in a Row

AMA Pinnacles Award

The months and weeks leading up to the second week of May in the medical staffing industry every year consists of a lot of strategizing, planning, deadlines, and acquiring hundreds of addresses. All of this is done with one goal in mind to show just how much we appreciate the medical travelers on our staff.

RTG Medical is proud to announce that their agency, Iridian Group, a full-service marketing agency headquartered in Omaha, won a Platinum Award in the Large Business Category for their work on RTG’s Nurses Week Promotion at the American Marketing Association Omaha’s Pinnacle Awards Ceremony. RTG previously took home the Silver Award in 2016 for the same promotion for the care package Theme campaign so that traveling nurses would have resources to keep them healthy while on the go. We also added a social campaign where people could nominate their favorite nurse.

After a nomination and application process, the AMA Pinnacle Awards use marketing leaders throughout different communities all across the country to review and rate each category.

Veronica Barrientos, RTG Medical’s Marketing & Brand Ambassador said, “It truly is an honor to be selected as an AMA Omaha Pinnacles award recipient for the second year in a row. A lot of hard work and thought by numerous people go into the gifts we send to our travelers!”

RTG Medical and Iridian Group also took home a Gold award this year for the RTG Culture Video, which you can check out here!

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 9.43.22 AM

RTG Medical has once again been selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Omaha for the second year in a row. The Best Places to Work in Omaha initiative recognizes workplaces that foster a culture of employee engagement within the Greater Omaha area.

Jeremy Guenthner, COO and co-owner of RTG Medical, said, “There is always a level of satisfaction in ‘recognition;, but every now and again you get the satisfaction of “validation”. We didn’t set out to win an award, we set out to grow a business within a market opportunity… and maybe have a little fun along the way. This award validates that with great people focused on doing the right things, rather than the things they have a right to do, genuine successes can be had and known. Being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Omaha is a great honor. We believe in this community, we invest in this community, and we are very much proud to be a part of this community. Thank you, Baird Holm, the Greater Omaha Chamber, and especially thank you to our employees… this truly is an honor.”

“Whether creating, collaborating or just building community, superior organizations deserve applause. The Best Places to Work in Omaha initiative celebrates organizations that have mastered the art of employee engagement, demonstrating what it takes to build and nurture successful teams. We celebrate everyone who participated in the process this year and look forward to learning from the list of winners,” said David G. Brown, President and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
