In this episode, I talk with Katie Vernoy of Evolve to Thrive about how to identify your group practices needs and how to identify a recruiting strategy. Some of the takeaways were:
  • Be a BOSS (be BOLD, OBJECTIVE, SELECTIVE, and STRATEGIC about your hiring process). I love this acronym!
  • Have a recruiting strategy that is organized, clear, and as automated and non-time consuming as possible. Listen to the podcast to learn more about the steps she recommends:
  1. Job description
  2. Job posting
  3. Phone/video screen (be sure to show the *warts of the job-aka be transparent about your needs, don’t be overly-flexible)
  4. In person interview
  5. Group interview
 This episode is jam-packed with useful tidbits from Katie, and you’re sure to leave with a broader understanding of how to effectively and efficiently recruit new therapists and administrative staff. Take a listen!
