Georgia Tech is using the power of business, technology, & innovation to build a sustainable future
This video highlights the people behind the Center for Business Strategies for Sustainability and some of the Center’s work to help students, faculty, companies, and other organizations collectively use the power of business, technology, and innovation to build a sustainable future. Designed to be a connecting point and catalyst — a hub for business-focused sustainability activities — the Center, launched in 2013, creates opportunities for student education, faculty research, and the efforts of companies and other organizations.

The Center helps students arm themselves with what it will take to engage, learn, lead, and thrive in a world of increasingly rapid change, resource constraints, and global climate change. It helps businesses and other organizations connect with and invest in what it takes to succeed in a world where sustainability is an increasingly important factor for success. And it supports faculty research efforts by attracting top talent and creating more ways to engage with industry leaders and other to explore the most critical, high impact topics and then supporting their efforts.

Georgia Tech is a place where ideas converge and leaders emerge. Where technologies and solutions are created today to solve the problems of tomorrow. For students, faculty, and organizations alike, the Scheller College of Business offers opportunities to discover and develop their role in solving these problems.

The Center for Business Strategies for Sustainability was made possible through the generosity of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, with additional support from the Kendeda Fund.

Online Business Technology Helps with Healthcare Staffing

hospital staffingThe medical healthcare staffing solutions field has branched out considerably in the past century. There have been hospitals and doctors since the Ancient Greeks but doctors are no longer the jack-of-all-trades they were like in the past. There are neurologists, dermatologists, radiologists, cardiologists, and many, many more types of doctor today. But it’s not just doctors that have branched out; actual medical facilities have changed and branched out from simple hospitals. There are physical therapy facilities, dentist’s offices, family clinics, and more. A hospital might have a number of facilities like these as a part of their building, but independent offices and facilities can be found all over. Regardless of whether it’s a hospital or an independent facility, they all require qualified, experienced staff in order to run smoothly and efficiently while providing the medical service the general public needs.

Finding the proper staff for a medical facility can be an arduous task depending on how the facility goes about its search. It certainly doesn’t hurt to search locally using local papers and such, but unless the facility is located in or near a big city, the required expertise might not be available in the local area. Setting up a website can greatly help extend the reach of a search, but for the best results, a medical facility looking for staff should look into using a staffing agency such as http://www.katondirect.com. The Medical Staffing Network is an experienced agency that has decades of experience in finding medical facilities the staff they need to properly function. Both hospitals and independent medical offices can greatly benefit from the experience and connections a staffing agency can provide, especially when it comes to highly skilled fields like anesthesiology. It’s certainly not a requirement to use such a service, but not using one is a great way to deprive a medical facility of an access point to experienced, qualified employees.
