Episode 45: On Hiring



  • Episode 45: On Hiring 00:00


Group Practice listeners! Today I’m doing another AMA (Ask Me Anything) where I’ll be answering questions regarding hiring & onboarding.

Things to keep in mind during the hiring process:

  1. Your vision + mission for your group practice
  2. Looking for strengths that compliment rather than reflect your own
  3. Personality & your office dynamic

How to make the most of your onboarding process:

  1. Have an in-depth training period
  2. Ongoing & consistent supervision
  3. Pay for or suggest outside training

How to compete with larger groups who can offer more to their employees:

  1. Focus on the environment + culture
  2. Being able to provide time and attention larger group owners can’t
  3. Loyal & close-knit staff community
  4. Find & highlight your non-financial incentives

When should you continue hiring?

  1. Wait until clinicians are 50% full to start looking
  2. When your clinicians are about 75% full, start hiring

The show

The podcast is structured so that you get practice building tips in small doses, where an episode can be listened to (and a group practice building lesson can be learned) in a single car ride.

Episodes are structured into categories: coaching sessions where I coach a group practice owner on a specific topic, tips of the day by yours truly, real talk where you get to be a fly on the wall while an established group practice owner and I talk about the highs and lows of ownership, and trainings done by experts in the field.
