An excellent example of a value-driven staffing firm is when a consultant places their loyalty and respect in the company they work with. Senior healthcare IT consultant Matt Perdue can testify to the power of these values at HealthTECH Resources, Inc. (HTR). Matt has worked with HTR for the last 20 years.
In fact, Matt started his IT career working closely with the President/CEO of HealthTECH Resources (HTR), Larry Hodge, in the mid 90’s. To this day, he primarily works with HTR: “I’d rather go through HTR than anybody else. They always take great care of me and are always concerned about my well-being and happiness on the assignment.” If you’re a healthcare IT consultant, you know there is no higher praise for a recruiting company than that.
IT Consultant with 20 years of experience with HealthTECH Resources
Matt has stayed with HTR all these years because they keep current with their systems. He appreciates the online payment portal and electronic payments. Other companies he’s worked with are still using paper checks and FedEx. Matt recognizes what a waste of time and money this outdated system is.“HealthTECH Resources, Inc. is better than anybody else out there.”
Being treated like a human being and not a commodity is another important aspect of HTR’s relationship with Matt. “They treat you like a professional and expect you to behave like one. I work to make my manager/client look good, and that has led to many repeat performances.”
“I’ve worked for placement firms that are no longer in business. They treated IT, consultants like they were ‘a dime a dozen’, and I believe that is what led to their demise. They weren’t supportive. They were disrespectful toward consultants in written communications to the client.” He voiced his disapproval to one such firm and three years later, no surprise to Matt, they were out of business.
HealthTECH exhibits loyalty to their IT Consultants
When asked what he finds most rewarding about working in health IT, Matt describes the challenge of “getting the machines to do what I want them to do. It can be frustrating at times, but it sure is nice when it happens for the client and me. I also enjoy meeting people and finding out what their needs are. I like knowing that I can make their lives easier by coming up with a system they enjoy using!”
When talking to other IT consultants on the road, Matt always encourages them to reach out to HTR. He says, “HealthTECH is better than anybody else out there.” Matt should know. He’s been around since the beginning of HTR. HealthTECH has exhibited the same loyalty and commitment to Matt as he has to them.
