PPR Healthcare Staffing Introduces Travel Advisory Board
Jacksonville Beach, Florida, May 21, 2008—PPR Healthcare Staffing continues to innovate within the growing healthcare staffing marketplace with the introduction of the Traveler Advisory Board (TAB). The TAB is a forum to gather real-world, real-time market data regarding anything from client facilities to what travel companies are doing right or wrong in the eyes of nurse and allied health professionals. The goal of the initiative is to identify areas where PPR can improve and therefore become more competitive.
"The TAB serves as a collective voice for travelers, their needs, wants, and concerns," said Dwight Cooper, CEO of PPR Healthcare Staffing. "The TAB provides the opportunity to have open conversations and interactions with travelers where they can be the eyes and ears of PPR in the healthcare industry."
Examples of topics to be discussed with the TAB include market trends, compensation and service offerings, lead sources, new PPR programs, recurring assignment issues or problems, and expectations of traveling healthcare professionals.
PPR's inaugural TAB includes 12 members serving a one year term; eight from nursing and four from allied health. PPR recruiters nominate travelers to be members of the TAB according to a selection criteria that include they must have traveled with PPR for at least one assignment and must currently be on a travel assignment (could be with a competitor). Ten meetings will be held each year including a PPR sponsored annual board meeting to be held in North Florida. TAB Members include RNs: Regan Fields, Carrie Winters, Jill Kleiner, Kayla Butler, Kim Taylor, and Sara Momberg; and from allied health: Stephanie Shafer, PT, Patricia Perkins, PT, Ellee Ancheim, OT, and Whitney Hayes, SLP.
