Have you started the HR Handbook yet for your dental office? If so, pull it out. Your action step for today is to: Determine a system for feedback. Team members need to have a least one annual performance review. This is the time to review competencies, set new goals or standards and develop long-term objectives.
Do This Now!
- Write an individual list of tasks for each position. Ask team members to compile a list of tasks and responsibilities for their positions. Review and determine appropriate competencies, performance standards and standards of measuring.
- Write out in detail provisions for vacation, sick days, medical leave, employee benefits, continuing education benefits, life insurance, medical coverage, dental coverage, overtime, incentive plans and performance evaluations and raises. Make sure to write out a policy against drug and alcohol use, sexual harassment and internet/social media use.
