Many doctors and office managers struggle to find and hire the right employees. From interviewing strategies to prescreening for computer literacy, the process of hiring seems to become more difficult all the time. It is for this reason that we have come together, utilizing our experiences and the experiences of others in our field, to demonstrate and to simplify the art of finding that right fit for your office.
For the health and success of your practice, you must have a high quality and motivated staff. Someone not suited to your practice can create a negative impression among your patients and cause the morale of your staff to decline. With today's tight health care labor market and competition from hospitals and other professions that offer higher salaries with more benefits, finding the right employee is even more difficult. Also the cost of employee turnover can be thousands of dollars in lost revenue plus a cost of energy and time it takes to replace and train a new employee.
Hiring an associate can be a daunting task. As an owner of a podiatry practice, you would like to continue to grow and make more money, while at the same time not spending more time away from your home and family. In addition, you don’t want to go through the pain of finding a new doctor. So, before hiring an associate, make sure you have everything in order so you truly can have more time and money.
