Note: We asked Dan Mau, one of our senior Nordic consultants, to weigh in on what he feels are key steps that the most effective (i.e., the “best”) consultants do before the end of a contract. This post is his thoughtful and helpful response. In true Nordic transparency, Dan is writing here as if you, the reader, are a Nordic consultant. In case you aren’t (yet) a Nordic consultant, we’ll offer some color commentary to fill in the gaps. Enjoy!
Right now, there's a lot of uncertainty about what the new presidential administration will change or attempt to change in the healthcare industry. We could spend lots of time speculating, but for now, let's talk about what's not going to change.
At Nordic, we place a high value on supporting the communities in which we live and work through volunteerism and charitable giving. Over the past year, we’ve developed a corporate social responsibility committee with the goal of responsible and charitable giving under the focus of preventative health to include the following pillars: hunger, education, and empowerment. In the true spirit of our maxim “Grow. Teach,” we recently hosted a number of events in the home office to raise awareness about Nordic’s culture of philanthropy.
In late October, Nordic welcomed Chief Client Officer Mark Costanza to the team. After Mark joined the Nordic delegation at last week’s CHIME Fall Forum, we asked him to share a few key takeaways from the event.
Nordic Senior Consultant Blake Sollenberger recently joined us in the home office to share the story of a successful experience he had with a client implementing Epic’s Single Billing Office (SBO) module.
Last week, Nordic announced a minority recapitalization with investment from Silversmith Capital Partners. In the video portion of that announcment, Nordic CEO Bruce Cerullo talked about some of the things we plan to do with that investment, but for those of you considering working for Nordic, you may wonder what this investment might mean for you. To add some color commentary, we asked Nordic's chief consulting officer, Vivek Swaminathan, to answer five questions about the investment.
After No. 8 Wisconsin’s football team’s overtime loss to No. 2 Ohio State this weekend, Madison sports talk radio was abuzz with the reasons behind the loss. One of the radio personalities spent a fair amount of time explaining Wisconsin’s main challenge.
Maybe it struck you as Labor Day hit–“It’s almost fall, and we haven’t accomplished all that we set out to do in 2016!” If that’s you, we want to move you a little closer to realizing your goals by pointing out a number of highly sought after skill sets that we’ll have available soon. Maybe that’s just the motivation you need to finish the year strong.
Last week, Nordic hosted our fifth annual Open House at our home office in Madison. Even though Mother Nature didn’t cooperate, we brought our own sunshine. For those of you who weathered the storm, here’s a video and some photos to relive the fun. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s a recap of what you missed.
We’ve already offered some tips on where to start your day in Madison with a coffee or a morning run. Now let’s talk about unwinding at the end of a long day. If this September isn’t your first time in Madison, you’ve probably tasted or heard about Wisconsin's unofficial state drink, the brandy old fashioned. While we love this classic, we hope you’ll enjoy some of our other local favorites. We recruited a few Nordic team members to share their preferred potent potables from around town.
