If you could have dinner with any one person, living or dead, who would it be and why? Ellen Degeneres because she is amazing, funny and full of positive energy. I love people like her.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and how would you use it? I would want to have constant positive energy and to be able to give it to others! I am a pretty happy person, so I want to share that with others.

What was the best concert experience you’ve had and why? Tiebreaker between Home Free and Garth Brooks. I just love music in general– all genres pretty much!

Name something on your “bucket list” and why? I would love to go to New York City at Christmas time to see the trees on Rockefeller Plaza all lit up. 

If your house was burning and you could only save one item, what would it be and why? Besides anyone in my family, I would save my journaling bible because it is special to me.

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 Helping Hands: Bring Your Child To Work Day 2019

RTG Medical celebrated Bring Your Child to Work Day on April 25th by inviting our employee’s children in kindergarten through third grade to spend a morning at work. Twenty-seven children piled into the lunchroom for a day filled with exciting activities ranging from coloring, playing minute to win it games, reading books and making donations for the local humane societies. At RTG our family is a priority so it is important for us to host events for the whole family. Take a look at RTG’s Bring Your Child to Work 2019:

Our day began by taking a tour around the office to see where their parents work, hangout, and even workout. We took a pit stop in the gym to do morning stretches to wake our bodies up and get them ready for the day. We raced down to the conference room to start our next activity, musical masterpiece. Children raced to the beats of Disney songs trying to complete their project before the music stopped and they had to find a new seat.

After our coloring games we returned to the gym to compete against each other in minute to win it games. The first challenge was the cookie face where the children had one minute to get the cookie from their forehead into their mouth without using their hands. The second challenge was the ice cream cone drop. They had one minute to drop as many mini marshmallows into their partner’s ice cream cone. Cleaning up the mess at the end was their favorite part.

My Post

After our snack, we cooled off with a good book called Can I Be Your Dog by Troy Cummings. This must read showed the children what it is like to homeless dog that no one wanted to adopt. The children learned how they too could help a homeless animal by adopting, volunteering, and donating to their local humane society.

A mission of RTG’s giving program is to support the Nebraska Humane Society and the Dodge County Humane Society. With this mission, we reached out in ways RTG could help after the flood hit Fremont and caused many animals to be placed in the shelter. “RTG’s Helping Hands” found a way to help those animals by making toys and treats to be donated. Children made a toy rattle for the playful kitties and a tasty pumpkin, oat, and peanut butter treat for the pups.

A special thank you to our volunteers for helping make this day such a success. Stay tuned for RTG’s next family outing at Werner Park.
