Travel nurses donate 2,000+ toys for Toys for Tots - Atlas All Access 138 - travel nurse podcast
We love the Toys for Tots program. It's easy to get behind an organization where the entire goal is to spread Christmas Joy to a child.
And unlike some organizations, you know that 100 percent of that toy you donate will go to a kid in need. Since it's run by the Marines, your donations go directly back to the kids, not operating costs.
This year, our traveling healthcare pros helped make our fifth annual Toys for Tots drive better than ever. We collected more than 2,000 toys that will go directly to the kids.
And YOU helped so much. You sent in toys, ordered mountains of gifts, and even contributed cash that we spent for more toys to add to the growing piles.
It's an amazing feeling to see the Marines show up to collect the toys and realize they should have brought a bigger truck. And then watch them take multiple trips to haul all those toys away.
Thank you for helping to spread some Christmas cheer and joy during a very rough year. Merry Christmas.
Travel nurse agency working from home; what's it like? - Atlas All Access 137 - travel nurse podcast
How do you take an entire company, effectively close down an office, and begin company-wide work-from-home policies overnight?
We discuss the hidden benefits working from home brings to our team, and how it allows us the flexibility to communicate with our travelers around their covid-era schedules.
We may miss the office and those random coffee chats -- and it's hard to replace those in-person activities -- but there's a lot to be said about the freedom of working from home, or traveling the country with your laptop handy, as many traveling healthcare professionals can attest.
Some of the best benefits of working from home include: no commute, improved productivity, working around your schedule, keeping costs down, efficiency and health, and location independence.
Find out how your travel healthcare recruiter is still out here working for you, only now we do it fully remote from our homes or the open road.
