A Word on Being Human


Her mom died.

She walked into her mom's closet and saw dozens of shoes, unopened, all from Zappos.

They were all past the return date.

She calls Zappos.

This is what they said.

"I am so sorry for your loss. We will send you a big box with the postage paid for. Fill it up with the shoes. Send it back to us. We will refund all the shoes."

This was so kind.

Then she came home the following day to a huge bouquet of flowers.

Now they are remarkable. They moved past business and into being human.

Remarkable: Doing something above average. Something that is worth someone else taking the time to {remark} about it to their friends. It goes above our job description and what is expected of us.

Human: People over profits. Leading with heart. Connection.

Being human to other humans means remembering the big picture. The real big one. That we all have one short life in this world together.

It is worth the effort to slow down and connect with other humans even when the job description doesn't force you to. (or even encourages you not to)

Good business is human.

Think back to your last month. Have you done anything {good} that is worth another person taking the time to talk about you for? Did you slow down enough to really put yourselves in someone else's shoes and care for them beyond the expectations of your job?

Nomadicare is in the business of humans.

Nomadicare is here to connect great and honest recruiters to great travelers. 

Nomadicare does take the risk for the company and only gets paid if those travelers get placed in a job. 

And Nomadicare really wants to stay in business and see all the travelers placed in jobs!

However, our goal is not about that. We are here for impact. It is why we don't take on just any company. It's why we take our time with the interviews with new recruiters and onboarding. We drip great travelers to recruiters and not overwhelm them with 10 a week. It's about quality. It's about WOW. It's about stepping up and truly being something different and better. 

Transparent. Vetted. Honest. Remarkable. Passion. Human. Empowered. -- They are all just buzzwords unless they are put into action. We are a company dedicated to the action behind the words, not just the branding. 

We want a long-term relationship with our recruiters and we want to make a difference to our travelers. We want recruiters who are dedicated to bringing joy and something unique to these brave travelers.

It's more work. It's more time. 

And it's more human.
