Things to keep in mind during the hiring process:

  1. Your vision + mission for your group practice

  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
