The latest episode of Trending Today airing on Fox Business Saturday, July 31 12:30 pm EST features innovators filling needs and niches in different industries from the traveling healthcare profession and vacation rentals to collegiate competitive gaming and humanitarian work.
The latest episode comes to you from the 21 st Annual Golden Trailer Awards , held at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville, Tennessee honoring the best movie previews and the creative professionals who make them. Known as the "Oscars" of the movie trailer industry, the event is a fitting venue to highlight award-winning companies featured on Trending Today.
Learn how Triage Staffing , based in Omaha, Nebraska , is disrupting the traveling healthcare staffing and credentialing market with its straightforward approach to recruitment and a partnership with the technology company Kamana Health . "We don't spin a fantasy of what folks are going to expect on contracts just to put a square peg in a round hole. That's not who we are. We are candid, upfront, honest straight-shooters about sharing information about the assignments they are going to take," says John Maaske , founder, and CEO of Triage Staffing.
The 15-year-old company places nurses, cardiopulmonary professionals, radiology professionals, and medical lab professionals in 13-week assignments. Triage Staffing provides global solutions in partnership with Kamana Health by offering a digital wallet. This safe, secure digital platform holds all pertinent information a traveling healthcare professional needs to find and secure a job. "The paperwork associated with our careers is a time suck. In the travel healthcare space, it's very speed-to-market. This remote data exchange has to happen fast if you are going to be successful as a travel healthcare professional," says Trey Modica , Co-founder of Kamana Health.
A new way of learning brings competitive gaming to the college campus of East Tennessee State University , which recently launched an Esports program . As part of the National Association of Esports Conference, ETSU students compete with universities across the country. "Having that experience for students and being forward-thinking and being on the cutting edge is how we see our role in higher education," says Karen King , PH.D., Senior Vice Provost for Information Technology Services. The ETSU Esports program has a 32-foot video wall and two dedicated training facilities on campus that train students as production assistants, camera operators, graphic designers, sponsorship coordinators, and other roles to support the gaming team. The program also offers scholarships.
