During week 2, the main focus was getting settled into our work flow, our groups and meeting team members. Engineering learned more details about their specific group project that they will complete for the summer and were assigned their roles. Consulting was shown more about the billing and clinical cycles. Then cloud computing worked with a microcomputer called the Raspberry Pi that was set up to work with their network testing. All in all, the three of us from our separate groups learned a lot about our individual teams but we are still working on learning the ropes. But we’ve also discovered our greatest asset, the Keurig machines. Continue reading FUTURES Week 2: Settling In and Setting up!
To welcome the 28 new Futures, in true Netsmart fashion, we attended an 80s themed skate party at the nearby Skate City. Although none of the Futures were born in that era, we all busted out our most bodacious outfits. Some of the most outrageous outfits included MC Hammer pants, neon leggings, and even a dudical He-Man costume. All of the Futures, their mentors, managers, and even the executives attended to give us a gnarly welcome.
Happy Thanksgiving from Team Netsmart!
Are you up for a challenge? Every year we see posts on social media outlets about what people are thankful for during the holiday season. This season WE challenge you to express your gratitude with words AND live by them! #ntst #blog #gotgratitude
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving from Team Netsmart!
I think the thing that struck me the most is how sad it is that there were so many people there. The fact that there are that many people that have been impacted by suicide is heartbreaking…and some of those folks were impacted multiple times. Except for the high winds, it was a very beautiful day and the walk around the park was very serene. A nice time for reflection. Continue reading A nice time for reflection… Out of the Darkness Walk KC!
Phew…. What a week! 59 candidates, 27 Netsmartians, 226 interviews, and an enormous amount of coffee later this week has been our biggest group of onsite visits for college students to date…. And we could not have been more proud of the talent that came on site to get to know us better. Continue reading Campus Recruiting Update: Interview Marathons
It’s a cause connected week here in Overland Park. I wanted to take a moment to highlight three events happening locally. Each offers a unique opportunity for us to connect with the cause we serve. Our show of support is essential in the campaign to make a difference, most importantly it let’s those who are directly impacted know that we are here in the pursuit of health, wellness and recovery for all. – Tom Herzog, Netsmart COO Continue reading Cause Connected in Kansas City!
This happened on Friday July 25th when NTST had the Royals party porch rented out for our event. Early in the game, the Indians Carlos Santana hit a homerun that landed right in front of me. Beside me covering her face is my wife, Anni, and Margy Foody (Insight team) is to my left. Mike Jones is also visible to my right next to my wife. Anyway, I missed catching the ball but was able to retrieve it. As I held it up in celebration, the NTST team and other fans collectively yelled, “THROW IT BACK! THROW I BACK!”. In the spirit of team, I obliged and threw it back. I am really happy it didn’t hit Omar Infante on the infield…but it came close! Shortly thereafter my phone started blowing up with Facebook messages of the video, texts, and calls from friends and other NTST team members who couldn’t make the game. All in all, it made for a great story at a really fun event. Looking forward to the next one!

A street reporter spends the vast majority of his time talking about endings. Sure, the language is active – live, breaking, happening now – but he’s really telling you about outcomes. The outcome of an angry ongoing conflict is a headline-grabbing murder. A devastating fire might be the end result of a careless smoker dozing-off one too many times with a red-tipped cigarette dangling from her lips. The crumpled remains of a sports car littering a residential street at two in the morning represent the culmination of a night of drinking combined with youthful hubris. For 23 years, prior to coming to Netsmart, I reported on endings for news radio stations in San Francisco, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Continue reading Upstream
As a senior in college, my thoughts are constantly on my future career and my looming graduation date. I could easily let myself overthink and worry about this future. Not to mention the fact that being a college student nowadays means that I am repeatedly told about the “horror story” that is the current job market and how competitive my résumé needs to be in order to land that dream job. All of these thoughts lead to one stressed out individual. However, my mind is put to ease when I think about my past internship with Netsmart and my ongoing one this year. My experience gives me confidence in my ability to be successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case for every internship out there. It takes a special kind of company to be willing to invest in the blooming workforce in a way that creates a lasting impact. Netsmart has given me this opportunity to grow through the Futures program. It was and is my job to take these opportunities and make the most of them.
One of the most distinguished attributes about working at Netsmart is that everyone genuinely enjoys working together, and collectively everyone has a great time. This is an especially evident in the Futures program. Since the beginning of this one-of a-kind experience, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the other Futures and having the opportunity to work closely with each person.
