You may think hiring a new chiropractic associate in your practice is as easy as putting up an ad on Indeed, Facebook, or your local chiropractic association website.
The truth is that the marketplace has changed. There are now five opportunities available for every chiropractic associate on the market today. Not only is the landscape competitive, but finding the ideal associate that will help you grow with your practice is a whole other story. You need a comprehensive plan to find your next ideal chiropractic associate to be competitive.
Smart chiropractic owners are now using a chiropractic recruiting firm, like Chiro Match Makers, to streamline their process and ensure they find the ideal associates for growth tier practice.
1. Why do chiropractors choose to hire associates with a recruiting specialist?
While most chiropractors are doing a great job of attracting patients, they are falling short in retaining new chiropractic assistants and associates.
With over 60% of new chiropractic assistants and associates quitting their jobs within the first eighteen months or less, practice owners must be doing everything they can to hire the right people and keep the right people on the team.
There is nothing that hurts the growth of a practice more than staff turnover. When an associate doctor leaves a practice, typically, that workload falls back to the owner, putting them back into working in their business instead of on their business.
Specialized recruiting firms can help you source the best talent available and match them to your practice. From candidate sourcing to vetting and interviewing, a recruiting firm can take the burden off your practice and help streamline the process.
No chiropractors have the tools needed to competitively source candidates in today’s market. But recruiting firms often use tools such as AI candidate sourcing, behavioral assessments, and interview pre screening that help expedite the process and zero in on your next ideal team member in a way that’s impossible for independent practice to do themselves.
2. Chiropractic recruiting specialists easily search and find qualified associates and assistants that match the culture they want.
Most people like this, but finding a great chiropractic assistant or associate isn’t easy. It is usually sourcing through hundreds of applications and conducting dozens of interviews hoping for the best. Who doesn’t want a great team that works well together and stays long-term?
Most of the time, we rely on gut feeling and pressure to “fill the seat” more than we have a systematic process of interviewing to find the best candidate for the position. I mean, what chiropractors out are professional trained interviews? Not a lot, that’s for sure.
But now, there’s a better way to find the best chiropractic assistants and associates for your practice. Chiropractic recruiting companies can help chiropractors find qualified chiropractic assistants and associates that fit their practice culture. Recruiters have the systems and tools necessary to properly vet your candidates and ensure that your interviews are productive and likely to succeed, saving you time and money.
3. Chiropractic recruiting firms quantify how hiring the right chiropractic staff can save money and time in the long run.
Chiropractors know that they need to hire the right staff to keep their practice running smoothly. Hiring the wrong team can be extremely costly.
Hiring the right team member can generate seven figures for your practice over time. Hiring the wrong team member can be a six-figure mistake.
Chiropractic staff turnover can be ten times higher than the average business. So, how can chiropractors make sure they hire the right people? It starts with clearly defining the role and job description. Then using a system of sourcing and vetting candidates establishes a cultural fit with your practice. From there is about interviewing to confirm the ideal team member. The final piece of the puzzle is crafting a fair comp plan and contract for both parties. As you can see, a lot goes into hiring the ideal team member for your practice.
4. What chiropractors who use Chiro Match Makers are saying.
Everything in this article probably makes a lot of sense to you, but you may be wondering how this works in real life.
Here is some feedback from clients of Chiro Match Makers- chiropractic’s number one recruiting and staffing company.
“Simply the best. Whether you’re looking for an associate or you want to be an associate, this is the company to use. Psychological testing makes sure that there is a good match between both parties. Their goal is to create lasting, productive relationships between their clients. They genuinely want both parties to be happy and successful.
Outstanding group of human beings intent on doing it the right way. Highly recommend. You won’t regret it!” – Rod Justice
“Chiro Match Makers sets the new standard for professional placement. When the Chiropractic profession is in such high demand, and quality providers and staff are in short supply, this company will do the leg work to match you with the right people. It is too risky to waste time and money on a potential mis-hire.
What makes Chiro Match Makers unique is their complete understanding of the industry and their use of objective tools to properly place staff in a position that will most likely ensure success.” – Steven Gianopulos
