CHG is sometimes referred to as a “big, happy family.” For some employees, however, that phrase rings very true — they work each day with their family, whether it be a spouse, sibling, son, daughter, mother or father. Get to know our real-life CHG families in this series of weekly stories, We Are Family!
We Are Family: The Duffy Duo
Though siblings Jessica Ziemer and Kevin Duffy, both CompHealth allied health staffing employees, may not have to share the family car anymore, they still share the same route to the office in Grand Rapids, Mich., where they work.
“When there’s a traffic jam, we call each other to take alternate routes,” Kevin, recruiter for the occupational therapy team, says.
Calls as they commute aren’t the only ones the siblings exchange, however. Kevin, who has worked at CHG for one-and-a-half years, joined the company after Jessica told him to check out the CompHealth booth at the Grand Valley State University career fair in Allendale, Mich.
“I enjoy working in a fun environment with flexible schedules,” Kevin expresses. “CompHealth helps me receive the tools to be successful.”
Jessica, provider representative for the physical therapy team, has worked at CHG for six years and says she heard about the company from employee Britt Campbell’s husband, who worked with her mom.
“The best thing about CompHealth is the people, both the providers that I work with and the people in the office. I have met some of my best friends working here, and it’s almost like a family,” Jessica shares.
Both Jessica and Kevin enjoy each other’s companionship at the office.
“At one point my sister also worked here, so all the siblings working together was lots of fun. I am very close with my family, so seeing my brother every day is great,” Jessica says. “My little brother is always coming over to my desk looking for change for the vending machine.”
Kevin notes, “It is nice having your big sister around at work because she has always has great advice.”
At the end of a long work week, Kevin and Jessica always make sure to take a break together, too.
“Kevin and I go to happy hour together after a long week, and Kevin brings “das boot” with him: a reward from his manager for a record recruiting week. It’s great to be able to bounce ideas off of each other, too. We bring different perspectives — my experiences and Kevin’s fresh ideas.”
