Vicki Stanley just loves finding people jobs. The owner and CEO of American Medical Personnel and New Work City Inc. runs the two companies that provide general employment services to the northeastern Ohio region. American Medical Personnel specializes in health care and provides nursing and clinical staff to hospitals, long-term care facilities and private homes throughout the region.

One of the hallmarks of American Medical Personnel is the family-friendly company outlook Stanley has designed.

For four years, Stanley employed an on-site preschool teacher until the children of her office staff were old enough to go to kindergarten.

The friendly atmosphere doesn’t stop with the office staff either. American Medical Personnel has free roadside assistance if an employee’s car breaks down on the way to a job placement. If the car can’t go at all, the company will have a driver take him or her to work. Stanley even hired a housekeeper and a massage therapist and offered their services to the company’s nurses as a reward for great work.

New Work City was founded in 2006 when Stanley’s nurses kept asking her, “Can you find my husband (or brother or friend, etc.) a job?” Having two separate companies allows Stanley to keep the health care division under the American Medical Personnel name and everything else under New Work City.

In 2007, she created the New Work City Neighborhood — a network of community members who offer easier and a more cost-effective solutions to home repairs and maintenance.

Stanley’s companies have grown gross sales in 2007 by 78.6 percent. The number of field staff employees also increased from 450 in 2006 to 750 in 2007.

In 2006, she opened the companies’ second office — and their first in Cleveland. As the number of field staff grew, she also needed to add administrative staff to help put those people to work. There were two full-time employees when Stanley founded American Medical Personnel in 1999, and now American Medical Personnel and New Work City have eight full-time staff members and six part-time job share employees.
