For One Staffing Company, Giving Back to the Community Boosts Employee Morale
From Recruiter - November 16, 2016

In the staffing industry boomtown of Omaha, Nebraska, millennial leaders, competitive professionals, and an award-winning company culture have propelled Fusion Medical Staffing beyond many of its competitors.

Fusion, which has experienced a 333 percent growth rate since 2012, nabbed the No. 1216 spot on the Inc. 5000 list ofthe fastest-growing private companies in America. It alsocharted as one of Omahas best places to work in 2016according to the Omaha World-Herald and was named both Best Staffing Company to Temp For (across all industries) and No. 1 Travel Company by the therapist-specific social networkTherapist Centric.

Remaining engaged with their employees and promoting positivity throughout the broader community helps President Sam Wageman and Chief Operating Office Scott Wehner preserve Fusions central goals: enhancing the careers of its staff members and fulfilling the needs of its clients.

Millennial Leaders with Passion and Know-How

Wageman attributes his companys continual and rapid growth to the fact that he and his employees never allow themselvesto become content. In 2009, Wageman and Wehner started Fusion in a basement in Nebraska, creating a business that aims to positively contribute to the health careindustry.

Maintaining effective communication within the growing organization remains a top priority for these millennial leaders.

Scott [Wehner] and I have offices, but it just doesnt feel right if I am not up roaming and engaging with each person several times a day, Wageman says. It gets me fired up, and most importantly, it gets [the employees] fired up.

By staying in the middle of it all, both founders are able to uphold an open-door policy.

Each employee knows they can come to Scott [Wehner] or myself for anything, whether it is a question, concern, or idea, Wageman says.

Celebrating Wins

At the end of 2012, Fusion had fewer than 20 employees. Today, as the company approaches its seventh anniversary, more than 130 employees work at Fusion, and the company continues to hire in the Omaha area. Growth has been so rapid it necessitated a recent build-out and a move into new office digs.

Fusions staff remains dedicated to finding top talent and committed to matching that talent with the best career opportunities possible. Wageman credits the people within the company as one of Fusions founding elements of prosperity: They love what they do, and [they] work so hard.
