July 23, 2023 – The New Portrait Of Leadership: Mike Vitek Of ShiftKey On Which Legacy Ideas About Leadership Need To Be Discarded, And Which New Approaches To Leadership Should Be Embraced. An interview with Karen Mangia.

We are living in the Renaissance of Work. Just like great artists know that an empty canvas can become anything, great leaders know that an entire organization — and the people inside it — can become anything, too. Master Artists and Mastering the Art of Leadership draw from the same source: creation. In this series, we’ll meet masters who are creating the future of work and painting a portrait of lasting leadership. As part of this series, we had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Vitek.

Mike Vitek, CEO of ShiftKey, believes in building and empowering teams to scale, innovate and lead. With 20+ years of experience in technology, recruitment, healthcare, revenue and team management, Vitek is committed to investing in people, teams and ideas to make a real impact.

In his current role as CEO of ShiftKey, Vitek’s vision is to leverage technology to transform how healthcare leaders and licensed professionals show up to work, equipping facilities with the data, insights and network to power strategic, scalable workforce decisions.

In his previous role as chief revenue officer, Vitek led a rapidly growing team of more than 125 people to identify and connect facilities with the right talent to meet unique patient needs in the moment and expand access to quality, affordable care. As a result, facilities have posted more than 50 million hours of shifts on ShiftKey, interacting with hundreds of thousands of licensed professionals looking for flexible work.

Vitek is also deeply committed to family and the Dallas community, serving as a member of the Dallas Mavericks’ Advisory Council to drive philanthropic efforts and hold leaders and businesses accountable to contribute and invest in local communities to make them better.
