While reflecting on this topic, I think of British businesswoman and activist, Anita Roddick, and the passion she brought to her work. Anita said, “To succeed, you have to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality.” It is this statement that guides one of our core values at Netsmart, to be passionate about what you do.
I spent the vast majority of my career recruiting in the financial services space. I enjoyed my work; however, never really had a true passion for it until getting into healthcare. When I was approached with the idea of joining Netsmart as Head of Talent Acquisition, what led me here was the passion I share with the company in supporting mental health, behavioral health, home care, hospice and long-term care. Knowing the work my team does has a direct impact on improving the lives of individuals and patients in these communities is what motivates me every day.
I love seeing this passion throughout our entire company. It feels like we have the best of both worlds when it comes to having a performance-driven culture with a non-profit feel. It is the connection to our causes that builds a bond with our associates and the work they do. No matter your job function, everything we do together makes a difference to so many people across the United States. If you’re missing this passion in your work, I invite you to take a look at the opportunities at Netsmart.
