Many chiropractors assume several roles, especially in the early years of building their practices. However, as the practice grows, you may find you can no longer handle office responsibilities and treat patients at the same time. If hiring staff makes sense, here are some tips to help you find the right person for your practice.
As entrepreneurs, many chiropractors assume several roles, especially in the early years of building their practices. However, as the practice grows, many doctors find they can no longer be the office manager, bookkeeper, appointment scheduler, and treat patients at the same time. But where do you begin and what is the process to hire someone?
Once you've identified your staffing needs and developed appropriate job descriptions, it's time to begin the search to find a qualified individual to fill the position. Many chiropractors decide to hire patients because they have first-hand experience and a knowledge base of the chiropractic profession. Or you may also choose to hire someone who doesn't have much knowledge of chiropractic, but who has the right attitude, open-mindedness and potential.
For many individuals, the job interview can be a scary process – even if you're the one hiring. You'll want to be prepared for interviews you conduct with job applicants with appropriate questions that can help you choose the right person.
The goal of your ad is to attract attention and get qualified individuals to apply for the position. But before you advertise your open position, have a clear idea of what you want to communicate. Your first step begins with your job description and using key elements of it to create an appealing ad. Begin with a concise statement that you can expand on – depending on space and cost.
When you've decided which candidate you would like to hire, contact the person, answer any additional questions, and extend the offer. The job offer should be extended in person or over the telephone. Don't extend a job offer by leaving a message on an answering machine. It presents a less than professional image of your practice.
Writing an effective job description is essential for you, potential employees and your staff. It provides information to applicants about the position and ensures that employees understand the job responsibilities.
As a small business, hiring the right person for your chiropractic office is crucial. For many practices, an employee is expected to wear numerous hats. From greeting patients to scheduling appointments to assisting the D.C. in taking patient vitals, including weight, blood pressure and pulse, as well computer input, the right employee must be a multi-tasker and a good fit for the culture of the practice.
The day you have been dreaming about finally comes! You have been offered a position in an office that is sure to fulfill your dreams of taking care of patients, learning from a mentor and supporting you and your family. You may have been offered a position as an independent contractor or an employee. Or maybe you're the hiring D.C. who has finally found the right individual who will fit in well with other staff and who you believe patients will appreciate.
If you are a basketball fan, you know that if a player is fouled while in the act of shooting and still makes the basket, the player gets an “and one” – an attempt to add one more point to the play. So in the course of hiring a new employee, don't you want an “and one?” The “and one” in this case is a successful employee who can grow within your company and contribute for the foreseeable future.
Just before Christmas, a story appeared in our local newspaper about a shooting involving a local pastor and a handyman who worked for his church. Apparently the "man of cloth" informed his employee that his services were no longer needed. At that point, the handyman opened fire with a hand gun and gunfire was then returned by the pastor. Although no one was killed, the handyman was critically injured and it would not be a surprise if lawsuits are filed by both parties.
