ONE NIGHT A BEAUTIFUL WISE OWL FLEW AROUND THE WORLD UNDER A MOONLIT SKY.
The wise owl had a vision to bring owls together from different lands.
The vision to create a collaborative based on trust and relationships.
These owls bring their wisdom and talents, a common purpose to inspire change, and strong ethics.
Owls who more than anything wanted to make a difference in the world.
To provide quality health care staffing with the highest standards of performance and integrity; while maintaining a diverse culture that promotes success and happiness for employees, travelers and business partners.
What should travelers know about VENTURA Medstaff?
Quaint yet mighty Boutique Staffing Agency that is filled with HEART. Making a choice on a daily basis to make a difference for our travelers, reducing our environmental footprint, and giving back to the world. A percentage of our profits goes directly to our Foundation, Ventura Sol Works!
What is the team culture like at VENTURA Medstaff?
We’re not cookie cutters! We are proud to be diverse at Ventura, and celebrate the fact that we are nurse owned, women-owned, minority-owned and veteran-owned. Our biggest milestone in 2018 is easy? It’s the launch of our humble Company in October 😊
How does the leadership at VENTURA Medstaff define success for the employees as well as success for the travelers?
People are our greatest asset and our reputation is only as good as our people! We also strive to create a unique culture that encourages innovation; for example, our first “Ventura” mom and baby were breastfeeding at work, and picked up by a local news station who thought it was a great idea. We’ve taken that one step further and are looking to provide in-house daycare for our new moms. Success is defined by each person and we try to make it a reality.
What are the hopes for the VENTURA/Wanderly partnership in 2019? How can we continue to best support each other?
We want Wanderly to continue to help us use technology for good and expose us to new nurses to join our family. We would love to use Wanderly to help support our expanding international travel nurse department. We also would like to advertise our Foundation, Ventura Sol Works, through Wanderly to help find us some nurses who would like to go overseas to developing countries.
What myths about the travel healthcare industry would VENTURA Medstaff want to correct for someone considering taking an assignment?
You are enough. And you can do this.
What gives the team at VENTURA the feeling of purpose in the day-to-day?
We talk a lot about the Four Agreements at Ventura: be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions and always do your best. This sets our intention for our day-to-day and it’s a pretty easy mantra to follow.
What are the plans for the future of VENTURA? What is planned for 2019?
Organic growth where travelers come to us because of who we are and what we stand for. We’d like to launch Ventura Sol Works, giving our travelers an opportunity to travel overseas on our dime. And, we’d like to continue expanding to more countries internationally (Saudi Arabia, Australia and…. Soon to be the UK!)
