Relode believes in making the healthcare process work better for everyone, and we think a significant portion of that comes from empowering nurses and other healthcare professionals with the tools they need to lead a healthy lifestyle.

We think you all rock at your jobs and are so grateful for the long hours and hard work you put in day in and day out to care for others.

We want you to know how awesome you are and to feel excited about the work you do.

Isn’t it crazy that nearly half (49.8%) of responding nurses are thinking about leaving their profession due to feeling overworked and disrespected by their co-workers?

Let’s work together to change that. Let’s have long-lasting, healthy, and rewarding careers.

Let’s stare burnout in the face and fight against it...

Clarify expectations with yourself & your supervisors
Analyze your work, have a few conversations with your supervisors and clarify what is expected of you. Then do the hard work of self-evaluating, figure out what you actually expect from your work and take the time to align your own expectations with your supervisors and colleagues.

Set healthy boundaries
Think through the past couple of weeks and make a note of any work you’ve allowed yourself to take on that falls outside of your job description. Stop doing those things and explain to your   supervisors and colleagues why you’ve stopped doing them.

Create outside rhythms
Start with one event or regular rhythm that you can create outside of the work day each week. Make it something you love doing and look forward to. Don’t sacrifice it or stop making time for it: Prioritize your fun.

 
   

   

Schedule rest
Rest seems simple, but it makes all the difference. Make intentional plans for downtime every day, create a space to refill your tank. In the same vein, do your best not to overload the rest, keep it simple.



Relode, peer for peer, empowers you to be at your best. Allow yourself the space to breathe and to care for yourself, because caring for people is what you do. You should never be the exception.

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-02.png

Becoming an agent at Relode is easier than signing up for a Facebook account. We designed it to be as simple as possible so you can start connecting your friends and community to awesome jobs all around the country.

Here is what you need to become an agent at Relode:

An Email Address

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-22.png

Simply said, we just need a way to communicate with you! You can sign-up through Facebook, LinkedIn or via email. And as you refer candidates and get moving in the platform, we will stay connected with you through your inbox.
 

Regular Access to a Computer or Smartphone

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-23.png

You can’t refer people without a device -- so at the very
basic level you’ll need some way to connect to the internet on a semi-regular basis.

 

A Few Friends

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-24.png

Whether you have friends through LinkedIn or a personal connection, you have to know some people and be willing to share with them new job opportunities.

 

A Little Motivation

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-25.png

Our sales aren’t automatic -- we don’t search through your connections for you and automatically send emails on your behalf. Our system does require you to ask around, send some emails and connect your people to some awesome jobs.


What it doesn’t take

Money

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-29.png

At Relode, it costs zero dollars to get started. You never pay a fee - agents never spend money to make money! After you make your first referral and your candidate gets hired, we’ll set you up on our payroll so you can receive your referral reward. It’s as simple as that.

Tons of Time

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-27.png

At the end of the day, you get what you put into it. You could make this a part-time job, or you could refer one person and make a little extra cash. Either way, you get to pick how much time you spend on it.

A Healthcare Background

BecomeAnAgentAtRelode_blogassets-31.png

It wouldn’t hurt to have a little knowledge about the healthcare world, but you most certainly don’t need it to be a successful agent. All you really need are a few friends in healthcare and a basic understanding of the internet.

Recruiting/Sales Experience

You don’t need a sales or recruiting background. You just need a willingness to connect your friends with awesome jobs. The more you help your community succeed, the better!


We really want to make it easy for you! Being an agent is simple, there are no fees or obligations, and your info is safe with us. If you have any questions about the process feel free to reach out, otherwise you can sign up here to get started and join the fastest growing community of healthcare professionals.

What Does the Nurse Shortage Tell Us About Job and Salary Trends?

What Does the Nurse Shortage Tell Us About Job and Salary Trends?

Getting screamed at by a patient, washing off vomit from your favorite scrubs, and working two double shifts back-to-back—all in a day’s work if you’re nurse. While most nurses admit that they didn’t enter the healthcare profession for the money, it helps to feel as if you’re being paid fairly and compensated for all you put up with.

Relode Founder/CEO Matt Tant on Disrupting the Healthcare Staffing Industry

Relode Founder & CEO Matt Tant

Relode Founder & CEO Matt Tant

Relode founder and CEO Matt Tant was recently featured on the Recovery Unscripted podcast, a production that's powered by Foundations Recovery Network, at their Innovation in Recovery Conference in San Diego last month.

During the interview, Matt represented Relode, sharing the lessons he learned about the healthcare field from his football career. By utilizing that knowledge and setting goals for himself, he's been able to disrupt the healthcare staffing industry by creating a place for recruiters and marketers to effectively use their professional networks.

Matt shared that his career in the recruiting industry was something that fell into his lap unintentionally. Noticing that the recruiting field lacked innovation, he developed his own method of finding talent and became eager to share it with others. In that same way, he shared with podcast listeners how Relode chooses clinical-based recruiting to help healthcare providers hire the best people for clinical positions.

Friends Helping Friends: A Relode Agent Success Story

"My grandparents always asked me what I wanted to do," says Julie Garcia, RN, a labor and delivery nurse in California, "and I always knew that I wanted to help people or animals. It just happened that nursing worked out!"

We caught up with Julie, a Relode Agent who first learned about Relode through Facebook, to find out more about her agent experience, get her pointers on the process and to find out how she's enjoyed fulfillment in helping a friend find his perfect job. 

How did you know that your candidate would be a good fit for this job?

I knew William — the candidate I referred for the job — for years because I used to work with him on an ambulance, and we would transport patients between hospitals during our shifts. We only worked together for a few years but became friends and would often stay in touch through Facebook. When I signed up as a Relode agent and viewed the jobs, I knew that he would be a great fit for the RN:ED position in San Jose, CA, because of his work experience. So, I reached out to him over Facebook and shared the job with him. From there, he applied, started the interview process and was hired within the month. I was so happy for him when he got the job because I knew the hours would be good fit for him.

What do you think of Relode compared to traditional hiring?

I was really excited when I heard about Relode because it puts the hiring process in the hands of healthcare professionals who know the best candidates. I knew William was the perfect fit for this job, and to have the ability and power to advocate for him was great. Additionally, as a healthcare professional, it’s very easy to grow a large network of friends and colleagues over the years and know what hospitals are looking for in candidates. Because I know my friends, healthcare as an industry and qualifications of the job, Relode just makes sense to use as a healthcare professional because it puts everything in one place. I’m literally getting paid to refer my network.

With traditional hiring or recruiting companies, the recruiters get the money, not the healthcare professionals. A lot of times they’ll ask me if I know anyone else for the job, but they get paid for my referral. With Relode, I get to use my network, and I get to have access to hundreds of jobs, but this time, I get paid. It’s a win-win for everybody. There are jobs on Relode for everybody, which is awesome because the odds of knowing someone to fill one of the positions are great. I also have never seen a company that cares so much about everyone’s experience. Relode takes the time to understand its agents, candidates and clients and to make the perfect match. It’s a team effort!

How was the process?

The process was super easy. I actually couldn’t believe how easy it was. Relode gave me the tools to communicate over Facebook, and it was so easy to do. Additionally, I was able to get his resume and make suggestions for what he could do to change it because I had worked with him and knew he was missing some information that would help him stand out. It was easy to upload William’s resume on Relode and create his profile. It took less than 5 minutes. Additionally, one of the Account Executives reached out immediately and kept in touch through email and phone calls during the entire process. It really felt like we were a team working towards one goal.

What tips and tricks would you offer other Relode Agents? 

The thing I did — and how I was able to get the second hire — was I posted it on our local nursing Facebook group. Facebook is a wonderful tool to reach out to your family and friends and help others out in particular jobs. I phrased it as, “I’m working with a hospital and I will help review your resume for this job.” 

How did you establish a relationship with your Account Executive? 

The relationship went really well. The Account Executive reached out to me via Relode and emailed, and we got communicating about the role and expectations. The Account Executives were quick to answer every question and communicate effectively. I felt like I was a part of the team.  

Do you have any advice for new Relode Agents to help with the onboarding process? 

I would recommend knowing what jobs are located in your area. It’s initially overwhelming because there are a lot of positions in the Relode platform, but familiarizing yourself with the positions will help a lot when sharing with friends!

When you're ready to help your friend(s) land his or her dream job, find out how to become a Relode Agent (it's free!), and then get starting leveraging your network.
