Workplace MVP: Robyn Smith - Jackson Healthcare
Robyn Smith, Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Jackson Healthcare, was the Workplace MVP on this episode. Robyn detailed the challenges Jackson Healthcare has faced throughout the pandemic and those that are ongoing, and the steps her company took to support the mental and physical well-being of its associates. She and host Jamie Gassmann discussed the creative solutions Jackson Healthcare has implemented, including virtual events, in-person events when they returned to the office, support for the challenges associates may be facing, the need for empathy, and much more.
The Jackson Healthcare companies provide healthcare systems, hospitals, and medical facilities of all sizes with the skilled and specialized labor and technologies they need to deliver high-quality patient care and achieve the best possible outcomes — while connecting healthcare professionals to the temporary engagements, contract assignments, and permanent placement employment opportunities they desire.
Headquartered in metro Atlanta, they’re powered by more than 1,700 associates and over 15,000 clinician providers covering all 50 U.S. states.
Their mission is to improve the delivery of patient care and the lives of everyone we touch. This includes the patients, clinicians, and healthcare executives they work with through their companies every day, as well as their communities, the nonprofit organizations they support and each associate who is part of their family.
