How THMED Staff Supports Childhood Cancer Research

How will we cure childhood cancer? One Cup at a Time!

In 2016, THMED partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to make a difference for childhood cancer.  Alex’s Lemonade Days is an annual event, hosted the second weekend of June, in which thousands of supporters nationwide host lemonade stands to help fight childhood cancer. This event has raised more than $15 Million for pediatric cancer. THMED was honored to be a part of the national effort to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation host three successful events during the weekend of June 10 – 12.

Friday, June 10th: Raising Cane’s, located at 7955 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75063, joined the team and contributed 15% of sales to the THMED ALSF Fundraiser for any customer who mentioned Lemonade Days when ordering.  THMED was able to spread the news to the community and other tenants in our corporate building raising a total of $139.14. The Raising Canes family was also fundamental in hosting the events during Lemonade Days, as they donated over 10 gallons of lemonade to THMED to use for lemonade stands.

We hosted our first official Lemonade Stand and raised $799.63 in just three hours! Thank you to the team at Kendra Scott for contributing 20% of all sales to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Saturday, June 11th: What goes better with lemonade then a juicy hamburger? THMED and Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburger partnered together to hold a successful lemonade stand through the rain and the scorching sun raising over $764.80 We were blown away by the generosity of both the Chip’s staff and the patrons who spent the time to not only donate, but learn more about ALSF and the staggering statistics of childhood cancer.

3 Ways to Help Fund Childhood Cancer Research this Month

3 Ways to Help Fund Childhood Cancer Research this Month

THMED is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research. Our goal is raise $8,000 this year to fund a full month of research.

Every year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. That’s about 700 new kids affected every day. And yet, childhood cancer is vastly and consistently underfunded. Less than 5% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year.

Kids with cancer don’t have time to wait. Your donation will go to research seeking lifesaving treatment. The money you give has the potential to make a huge difference for these kids and their families. Please join THMED in the fight to end childhood cancer!

We have three events coming up and we need YOUR HELP to make them great!

  1. Friday, June 10th (5PM-8PM)Our ALSF committee will be holding a lemonade stand at Kendra Scott at The Plaza at Preston Center in Dallas, TX. Kendra Scott has graciously volunteered to donate 20% of all profits from 5PM – 8PM to fight childhood cancer. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a purchase anyway, you may contact May Usman via email at May.Usman@medestar.com on how you can purchase without being present.
  2. Friday , June 10th ALL DAY  – Raising Cane’s located at 7955 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving, TX will be donating 15% of the day’s profits to the THMED Fundraiser for any purchase made. PLEASE TAKE YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS to the MacArthur Raising Cane’s this FRIDAY and remember you MUST mention “Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.”
  3. Saturday, June 11th (11:30A-3PM) at Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers located at 4530 Lovers Lane, Dallas, TX. We will be hosting a lemonade stand, collecting donations, and educating patrons of Alex’s story and the mission of ALSF!

Employee Appreciation Event: Byron Nelson 2016

Employee Appreciation Event: Byron Nelson 2016

The THMED permanent division finished April 2016 with the most success since its inception.  To honor the diligence and teamwork that helped achieve this goal, THMED sponsored a day out of the office at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

THMED employees attended the AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament, one of the longest-running active tournaments on the PGA tour. Held annually at the Four Seasons Resort Dallas at Las Colinas, the AT&T Byron Nelson is a highly anticipated event in the Dallas area.  Golf fans are able to follow the pros through the course while also enjoying the various attractions like evening concerts.  THMED employees enjoyed a chance to spend time together to celebrate their successful growth as a team.

This day out is one of the many ways we like to reward our employees. At THMED, our mission is “Centered on Finding People who Care.” A great month means more physicians placed in new communities who can provide care to patients. We know it takes a huge effort from our employees to recruit in such challenging times, but their dedication and focus shines through. Look out for more updates on great employee appreciation events happening this month and throughout the year.

4 Reasons to Join THMED

4 Reasons to Join THMED

As THMED continues to experience exponential growth, our need for great employees has risen also. A major component of the company’s ability to attract and retain top talent in our industry is because of what we offer our employees.  THMED is a company with great stability, continuous trainings and personal employee development programs, great company culture and a top notch executive team who work side by side with their employees.

Consider these four reasons to join THMED:

  1. Stability: THMED, LLC was named to the Dallas 100TM as one of the fastest-growing companies in Dallas by the Caruth Institute at SMU Cox School of Business in 2014 and 2015. In September of 2013, we moved our Dallas location to accommodate the company’s already rapid growth and are currently under construction to expand again, in preparation for the surge of new employees coming to THMED.
  2. Employee Development: It is not uncommon here to be looking for an open conference room only to find them occupied for employee development meetings and training sessions. We consistently strive to feed our staff with industry knowledge through employee presentations, one-on-one trainings, group sessions and setting achievable personal development goals.
  3. Our Executive Leadership: Our Executive team is made up of individuals that have a deep understanding of the healthcare staffing industry through their numerous years of experience in the field. They are not off-site in some big skyscraper somewhere just overseeing production numbers, the executives at THMED work side by side with their employees, creating a very close family-like team atmosphere. They not only want THMED as a company to excel, they genuinely want each of the employees to be as successful as they themselves are.
  4. Our Company Culture: We believe a vital part of our organization’s success is the company culture that we foster. We encourage our employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance by providing a great PTO benefit program and several paid holidays throughout the year. We have frequent company gatherings and events to help facilitate colleague relationships and our team building mentality. We offer a business casual work environment that promotes personal and professional growth in a fun, competitive atmosphere.

2016 is already a milestone year for the entire THMED team. We are looking for top notch talent with a desire to improve their work and home life, while doing something that makes a big difference in communities throughout the country. Interested in joining us or know someone that may be?

Selling Lemons for a Good Cause

Selling Lemons for a Good Cause

Every year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. That’s about 700 new kids affected every day. THMED is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to make a difference for childhood cancer. Donate, share and/or spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Make every cup count, one cup at a time.

When Alex, who was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her first birthday, was four, she told her parents she wanted to set up a front-yard lemonade stand. Her plan: to give the money to doctors to help them find a cure. Her first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand”, held with the help of her older brother Patrick, raised an astonishing $2,000 in one day. In 2004 when Alex passed away at the age of eight—her stand and inspiration had raised more than $1 million towards finding a cure for the disease that took her life. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation was started by her parents in 2005 to continue the work that Alex began.

The ALSF committee within THMED plans community outreach events for our employees and all donations are sent to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.  Between March 14th and April 14th, THMED employees are selling paper lemons to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Buy a lemon and write a note of gratitude to one of your co-workers, have your kids decorate it, or write an inspirational quote – the options are endless!  “We hope this is a cause we can all get behind, and there will be more opportunities throughout the year to support the Foundation,” says Korey Adams, Resources Director for THMED.

Kids with cancer don’t have time to wait. Your donation will go to research seeking lifesaving treatment. The money you give has the potential to make a huge difference for these kids and their families. Please join THMED in the fight to end childhood cancer!

Using Team Building Exercises to Benefit Company Culture

Using Team Building Exercises to Benefit Company Culture

Small companies are very team oriented and communicate with each other throughout the day. For larger, corporate companies it can be difficult to stay in contact with each and every member of the company. To make your staff come together and build a bond that is beneficial to the company as a whole, team building exercises and day-outings are a fun way to meet each other and connect on a different level.

THMED brought their California office to Texas to join the Dallas team. With five divisions (Fidelis Partners, Medestar, Allied Staffing Network, THMED Exec and myCVConnection) and two office locations (Aliso Viejo, CA and Dallas, TX) it can be hard to meet and connect with every individual. To break the barrier we traveled to Maggiano’s in NorthPark mall to attend a murder mystery luncheon. We started off by having 10 different teams formed from all of our divisions. Each team was assigned a color and task to create a team name and theme. The results were fun and a great way to show everyone’s creative side! As we dined on the delicious Italian cuisine actors played out a scenario that we had to solve. Was the murderer a cast member or one of our own? We explored the room we were in by interrogating other teammates, players on other teams and the actors. There were many theories being thrown around the room that made everyone laugh and communicate with others that they have never even met before. After deliberation, a few teams chose the right murderer and a few were far off, but in the end it was a great team building exercise.

Team building doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. There are many ways to have your company come together and get to know one another. Try hosting a BBQ with DIY games, attending a sporting event or even a movie showing in the office with popcorn and snacks. Having a positive and uplifting company culture is an asset that improves the services and products of every company. If employees are excited to work every day with their co-workers they are more likely to produce quality and efficient work. Try an exercise with your company and see how well it brings your team together.

THMED prides itself on having a fantastic company culture. We have a “culture committee” that discusses ways to continuously keep our company exciting and growing on a personal and professional level. In 2015 we attended speed races, horse races, rodeos, sporting events, BBQ’s, and lake houses… just to name a few! We also went out into the communities and gave back as a team by partnering with food banks and shelters, as well as in-house volunteer projects and drives. We believe that keeping a constant focus on our mission and values creates a strong bond between every employee. THMED is proud of the relationships that have developed in the past and are excited for the future. Find out more about a career at THMED here.

THMED Staff Helps Local Communities in Need

THMED Staff Helps Local Communities in Need

In December, THMED employees took a day to volunteer locally in their communities.

On #GivingTuesday, our Dallas office volunteered at the North Texas Food Bank.  The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, providing access to more than 170,000 meals each day for hungry children, seniors and families. Throughout the month of December, we collected canned food in the office, and then spent a day sorting, boxing and bagging food at NTFB.

Our California office volunteered at the Orange County United Way assembling home essentials for families in need as they get back on their feet and move into their own homes. We sorted donations of home essential items and arranged them in baskets for each family.

Both events were a great experience and opportunity to give back to our communities. We hope to continue our efforts to support the North Texas Food Bank and Orange County United Way
