How do I complete the Employment tab of a Caregiver profile?

The Employment tab houses information about the Caregiver's employment with your staffing company.

  • Note the email address and phone number in the upper right corner. You'll see these on every tab of the Caregiver's profile and you can click on either icon to send an email to this Caregiver or a text (if you use our mass texting integration).
Location Settings: the Employed In region is the Caregiver's home region; the region you were filtered to when you clicked New Caregiver. To edit this Caregiver's profile in the future, you must filter to the Employed In region.
  • If you have multiple regions, and want to fully utilize your caregiver database, you'll add regions to the Works in field. When you enter a Shift, BlueSky searches for Caregivers who can work that shift that have the same Degree, Specialty, category, availability, and Region as the Facility. If your Caregiver isn't in that region, they won't be included in the candidate search.
  • To add a region, click the blue Add button next to Works in:

  • Click on the Region drop down menu, click on one of your other regions, and click OK. In the image below, note the two regions listed in Works in. This means that Kate Bennett will be included in candidate searches for open jobs in these two regions.

the options you see here are the type of jobs this Caregiver is willing to work. You selected a Default Category when you configured your Company Setup. This default option is displayed in the Category field. You can add other categories by checking the boxes next to Traveler and Permanent Placement. In the image below, note that the Default Category is Per Diem, and that Permanent Placement is checked:

  • When Shifts or Permanent Placements are entered in either of the regions that Kate Works in, and she has the matching Degree, Specialty, and Availability, she will be included in the candidate search.
Employment Status: the options in this list tell BlueSky what kind of employee this caregiver is:

  • Seek Employment with this Firm: a W2 employee.
  • Work through: a subcontractor, but not a 1099. This is a caregiver that is a W2 employee of another agency.
  • 1099: a self employed subcontractor, usually a physician.
  • Converted to Hospital System: this caregiver accepted a perm placement position or their contract was bought out by a facility and they are now an employee of that facility.
  • If you select either Work through or 1099 and you run payroll and invoicing, you will need to open up the SC (SubContractor) Payroll and run a separate payroll.
Caregiver #/NPI/Payroll ID: these are employee ID numbers, either internal or payroll ID numbers. An NPI (National Provider Identifier) is usually assigned to physicians.
