Giving Staffing a Good Name
December 30th, 2011
A Great Honor!
It has, by far, been a great honor to be associated with all of you. Since we began in 1989, we have been hearing great things (see below) about Stambush. 2011 is no exception:
Stambush has the best people
Stambush is the most reliable
Stambush is the best
Stambush is so fast sending credentials
Thank you for keeping us strong and making us stronger. On top of this feedback, I have been to many of the facilities you all provide services to, and I am always touched by the adversity your clients face and try to overcome with your help. You have to be a special person to do the work you all do, especially in the high quality manner in which you do it. I understand that many of you do not think about the help you are giving because you are too busy, so please let this article remind you just how special you and your contributions are. Everybody needs help in this world, and because of you the world is a better place. On behalf of all of your patients and their families, I would like to say thank you! Again, it is a great honor to be in the same organization/family as you.
Chiropractor/Physical Therapist Says, "PT Isn't Brain Surgery, It's Common Sense."
On the LinkedIn American Physical Therapy Association Discussion Board, a PT student named Moyo asked what everybody’s thoughts about her traveling right out of school were. Quickly, several PTs and I said she should get some experience in a permanent setting with good mentors and a variety of patients before she began traveling. As usual, the "professionals" (I use that term loosely) were pimping, talking about how they would love to hire her. Well, I am used to that nonsense. After all, those people are paid to recruit licensed people. However, about two weeks ago, the following post appeared in response to Moyo:
Daniel Jacobazzi, DC, PT - Moyo, being a traveling PT is a good thing and, regardless of your clinical experience, you'll be fine ... (sic) PT isn't brain surgery, it's common sense. Good luck to you and have fun!
Well my initial thought was to go to his resume on LinkedIn, learn all I could and then blast his logic and maybe him too. Shortly thereafter I realized he was really summing up the attitude of the agencies that hire inexperienced new graduates, so I shot back with the following:
I disagree with Daniel, but he is saying what all the inexperienced new graduate hiring staffing agencies seem to be promoting. "PT isn't brain surgery, it's common sense. Good luck to you and have fun!"
Interestingly, no agencies that hire new grads have publicly responded to Daniel’s post or my post. In law, we would call that a “silent admission,” but personally I call that smart because they don’t want this issue to get big. They want it to go away, but it will not go away as long as we are around, no matter how many private emails those agencies send me.
Do the Right Thing
That's what it takes to be a hero, a little gem of innocence inside you that makes you want to believe that there still exists a right and wrong, that decency will somehow triumph in the end.
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.
―William J. H. Boetcker
Net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the high road to pride, self esteem, and personal satisfaction.
It takes less time to do things right than to explain why you did it wrong.
―Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
―W. Clement Stone
