October 16th is National Boss’s Day!

In honor of National Boss’s Day, we are expressing our gratitude and appreciation for our Netsmart bosses and other supervisors in our organization. At Netsmart, we are surrounded by dedicated leaders who encourage collaboration, teamwork and motivate us to strive for a better future together. They are leaders and teachers.

While this year has brought countless challenges, our bosses and leaders have employed new ways to stay connected, fostering communication and encouraging us to rely on our Netsmart family. Our managers and superiors have supported associates across multiple office locations in Overland Park, Springfield, Louisville, San Jose, Great River and now for some an unfamiliar territory, the home office. Our bosses have gone above and beyond this year to transform our individual skills, offer additional guidance, encouragement and help us do what somedays might seem difficult—grow in a time of change.

Day after day, Netsmart proves to be one of the best companies to work for and this foundation of excellence starts with our leaders and mentors. Netsmart leaders help us take risks, create meaningful relationships with clients, live our values and develop a passion for what we do. When our hard work comes together, our mantra, people matter, becomes more than words—it becomes reality for the Netsmart family.

Our appreciation extends to our managers and supervisors today and every day. TODAY is your DAY! We can’t think of a better possible time to celebrate our bosses, as National Boss’s Day falls right after CONNECTIONS2020 and the start of a new quarter! All our Netsmart bosses demonstrate hard work and dedication that is deserving of ongoing celebration.

Once a year isn’t enough to express our gratitude for all the great work our Netsmart leaders do. Thank you to all our managers, supervisors and other leaders for everything you do for Netsmart and for us! We appreciate each of you and wish you the best National Boss’s Day!

Sharing Reflections As We Say Farewell to Our First Group of Virtual FUTURES

As we continue to navigate the uncertainty 2020 brings, we’re grateful we had the opportunity to spend the summer with 39 Netsmart FUTURES. While the experience differed from years past, it still offered each student the opportunity to join meaningful projects, gain real world experience and apply the knowledge they’ve learned in the classroom.

Preparing students for the next step in their careers is just one of the many positive outcomes of this program. Watch the video below, as eight 2020 FUTURES share about their six weeks with Netsmart during the first ever virtual internship program

Guiding Our FUTURES Forward

The FUTURES program is built to “develop innovators and dreamers for the Netsmart of tomorrow.” Interns are called FUTURES because they are the future of Netsmart. FUTURES are given a project to work on throughout the summer, followed by a chance to “strut” what they’ve learned before the program ends. The goal is to allow students to grow their passion within Netsmart, learn new professional and leadership skills and collaborate among each other.

Over the years, the FUTURES program has almost doubled in size and includes students in areas of consulting, marketing, HR, finance and engineering. We spoke with previous FUTURES who are now Netsmart associates to share about their experiences and what they would recommend to those who are joining the program for the first time.

Generosity Unmasked

As many of us continue to work virtually from the safety of our homes, many individuals do not have that option. Many of our friends, family and peers are working at the forefront of COVID-19. Without proper personal protective equipment (PPE), people with jobs deemed “essential,” especially in the medical field, are potentially exposed to the virus just by going into work every day. Not to mention the shortage of PPE in many places, therefore not everyone has access to necessary face masks, shields and other protective gear.

With this shortage in mind, Netsmart associate Nicole Slaughter gathered supplies and took matters into her own hands. Slaughter and her husband worked to support frontline employees who are courageously serving our communities during this difficult time.

The Power of Kindness Amid a Pandemic 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has recently changed many elements of our daily life, and that includes the lives of those living in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. These individuals often rely on visitors to keep them company, and due to recent circumstances, many facilities are discouraging or suspending non-medically necessary visits.

But even with new standards in place, many organizations are going above and beyond to make their residents feel loved and supported.

Hear from two Netsmart associates as they share their mothers’ unique experiences in their respective assisted living facilities.
