Fidelity On Call Proud To Be a Sponsor of the 2023 Knox County Fair

We are always excited to support our local communities. The Knox County Fair of 2023 might be one of our new favorites. We are a sponsor this year, and helping to bring a rising, young musician to open for Sawyer Brown and Scotty McCreery, Josiah Siska did not disappoint. Not only did he sound great on stage but was so kind and personable allowing Kellie S the opportunity to meet with him backstage and snap a few photos.

Thank you Knox County Fair board for reaching out and allowing Fidelity On Call, Ltd. to help sponsor and bring Josiah to the Knox County Fair Grounds. We enjoyed seeing so many of our employees enjoy the music, fair food and drinks and a night filled with great music.

Travel Healthcare Payroll, why is it so complex?

Since Fidelity On Call’s inception in 1994, we have operated on a bi-weekly payroll system. At first, the
system was easy. An employee went to a facility, documented their time ticket, had it verified by the
facility, turned it into the Payroll Department and they were paid. Fast forward to today and things have
gotten a lot more complicated.

Why? Because we now work with numerous facilities that dictate their own documentation and, at some of these facilities, we work through VMS/MSP which put yet another layer into the documentation process.

We, as their supplier, must implement the payroll standards that they require of our team in order to
properly bill the facility or VMS and, in turn, pay our team member.

This process must be as transparent and easy as possible but there are so many layers.

For the past 29 years, we have used paper timecards. But, after much research, we have found a better
way which we believe will be easier for our team members. We can never eliminate some of the layers
(so the facility and/or VMS reporting still has to be done), but we can attempt to make your reporting
process easier for our payroll reporting and with the LightWork system this is possible.

You will have a website link on your phone (bookmark it).

You will “punch in” and “punch out” at the start and end of your shifts along with breaks. Review your punches at the end of each shift.

It will be necessary to email the payroll email with any errors and boom – it’s done.

No more calls from us that we did not receive your emailed timecard.

No more tracking people down because we cannot read the writing.

This is a WIN for everyone!

Kellie Short Illinois ESGR Bosslift

When our recruiters hire a member of the Guard and Reserve they recognize that they are essential to the strength of our Nation and the well-being of our communities. We are proud to say that we have Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine veterans all working for us along with our “weekend warriors” who are part of the National Guard.

During her time at Fidelity On Call, Kellie Short, Sr Recruitment Specialist and General Sales Manager, has hired and worked with many members of the military. Fidelity On Call and Kellie have been recognized for the exemplary job done in working with our military travelers who need to take and coordinate their leave when duty calls.

Because of her commitment to these nurses, Kellie was nominated by LTC Jason Burnett and Elizabeth Burnett to take part in the Illinois ESGR Bosslift.

When she received the notice that she was selected she was told to report at the air base on Airport Road in Peoria. She would be flying in a Chinook helicopter!

Kellie was prepared when the day came. After touring the base, she donned her ear mufflers and took off for a ride that had her touring over Peoria and the Illinois River. It was a very special experience and one that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

Congratulations, Kellie!
