Hiring is Like Datingby Dr. Ron Arndt
Hear me out!
Most Dental CEOs view dental staff recruiting as a process of quickly convincing an experienced candidate to accept a job offer. That’s just not true. Recruiting is more about attraction and charm. It’s like dating! Yes, it’s been years since I’ve courted anyone (I’ve been married for 38 years to my beautiful bride, Trish). However, recruiting is all about attraction!
In today’s labor markets, our focus must be on attracting the kind of staff we want to work with us. Begin by creating a fun, fair, and rewarding work environment, so that anyone who visits you – candidate, vendor, or patient – walks away thinking “Wow, that dental office would be a great place for [me, my cousin, my sister, etc.] to work.”
Don’t just work on finding the perfect hygienist. Work on making your office the perfect place for a terrific hygienist to work at!
