    Denny was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was a very involved manager who had a passion for his role and also took a personal interest in my success as well as the others in which he worked with. His enthusiasm was contagious and he always had a positive attitude. Denny was also the most creative thinker in which I have had the pleasure to work with. His ideas were brilliant and he was always coming up with new ways to improve our operations and business systems. Denny is the kind of person who will be successful in any situation he involves himself with.

    I highly recommend Denny Sher and know he is a tremendous organizational asset. I worked with Denny at MedStaff when he was VP of Travel Nursing and I was VP of HR. He is a skilled sales development leader who came up through the ranks and knows how to provide strategic direction and motivate his staff. Denny is trusted by his clients because he listens to their needs and is resourceful and creative in getting their needs meet. His sustained success can be attributed to his natural ability to connect with people across organizational hierarchy and build long term business partnerships. I am confident that Denny's skills and experience contribute to the growth and success of any company he serves.

    Insight Workforce Solutions | October 2013 - Current

    Our team partners with hiring entities to provide a managed service platform that saves money and adds operational efficiencies/support to the administration. Our current focus is school districts and the non-certified personnel. The financial savings are significant and the result is more qualified professionals in the classroom. We will soon work in concert with school districts and the medical community to provide savings and a safer/healthier environment for students. Our goal is to facilitate a change in the school healthcare program from reactive care into a patient centered medical home. We work with ACOs to provide the "triple aim" of less cost, more satisfaction and better overall health through preventative care. When fully implemented we provide: Faster access to emergency patient assessment and care plan Elimination of communication errors at hand off (where 70% of sentinel events occur in the ED) Preventative screenings Emergency and ongoing mental support Better overall safety and healthcare for children in a financially prudent manner.
