Discover the Inspiring Story Behind Converdia: From Dream to Thriving Success

Meet Brian Rahman: Our Founder, President, and Owner

At the heart of Converdia’s journey is Brian Rahman, a visionary whose passion for healthcare staffing transformed a dream into a thriving reality. Rahman’s journey began as a hospital administrator across North Dakota, Minnesota, and Colorado. During this time, he recognized a critical need for staffing in healthcare facilities, particularly in the Midwest. Driven by a desire to address this challenge, he contemplated starting his own staffing agency—a notion initially met with skepticism but supported by those who believed in his vision.

Fast forward over 30 years, Rahman’s dream has materialized into Converdia, a name inspired by his alma mater, Concordia College, where his passion for hospital administration was ignited. From the beginning, Rahman instilled a mission and core values that he envisioned would define Converdia. The mission: “To build bridges between healthcare professionals and facilities to positively impact communities in need,” particularly focusing on rural America where the need is greatest. Today, Converdia is licensed in 21 states and counting, steadfast in its core values of “Trust, Integrity, Service, and Relationships.” These values are prominently displayed within the company, serving as daily reminders and guiding principles that have remained unwavering since the company’s inception.

What Makes Converdia Unique

Converdia distinguishes itself from other healthcare staffing agencies through its unwavering mission, core values, and vibrant workplace culture. The company started as a small family business with just six employees, including Brian, his wife, and two sons. This familial foundation promotes a unique commitment and unified leadership that resonates throughout the organization. Brian’s motto, “work hard, play hard,” ensures that the workplace is not only productive but also fun.

When expanding his team, Rahman seeks individuals who embody Converdia’s core values, emphasizing hard work, attention to detail, dedication to excellent service, and outstanding customer service skills. This careful selection process ensures that new hires align with Converdia’s mission and contribute positively to the company’s culture.

Beyond its familial atmosphere, Converdia is deeply committed to giving back to the community. Over the past four years, the company has participated in various initiatives such as Meals on Wheels, Earth Day garbage clean-ups, and charity benefits, reinforcing its dedication to service and community engagement.
