September 15, 2016

Rx relief, a leading pharmacy recruiting and placement firm, is pleased to announce that employee Brenda Riser was named the 2017 National Staffing Employee of the Year All-Star, health care sector, by the American Staffing Association (ASA).

The annual celebration honors the contributions of the more than three million temporary and contract employees who work for U.S. staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions companies during an average week.

“I am so proud to have Brenda receive such an amazing award,” says Carl Franklin, R. PH., Executive Vice President, Rx relief. “Brenda achieved this distinction because she is a dedicated healthcare professional who strives to provide the best care to her patients and the best service to her clients each time she enters the setting.

“Brenda is always finding ways to enhance her knowledge and skill, and she uses those enhancements to continue to grow in the profession,” continues Franklin. “Brenda is a model for all healthcare professionals.”

“I feel deeply honored not only to be nominated for, but to also receive such an accolade,” states Riser. “It is with tremendous support that I have the opportunity to grow my skills and knowledge, in order to make a difference in my patients’ lives.

“The entire staff at Rx relief is an extended family for me, and I believe they have facilitated my success in both my personal and career growth,” continues Riser. “I am grateful for the association, agency, and clients that allow me a wonderful, flexible, and challenging work environment in which to perform my duties, grow professionally, and achieve personal happiness. It is a high honor to be recognized for the work I love.”
