You’ve worked hard, spent the years, and finally graduated with your chiropractic degree. You made it, and you’re ready to open your practice. But there’s a problem.
While you understand the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic, you’ve never run your own practice. And, your eight years of education and graduate school did not teach you how to open or maintain a business- never mind how to source, vet, interview, and hire the ideal team members for your practice.
There is a solution. A chiropractic staffing agency, like Chiro Match Makers, can help you find the right talent and team you need to start and scale your practice. Hiring the right team members is challenging. And hiring someone who understands your business and can help you serve your patients best by caring for the business side of your clinic is even more challenging.
After reading this article, you will understand how a chiropractic staffing agency like Chiro Match Makers will help you find the ideal team for your chiropractic practice.
Help With Chiropractic Recruiting and Hiring
A chiropractic staffing agency will help you recruit, hire, and train excellent chiropractor Associate DC’s and Chiropractic Assistants. When looking for new team members, you typically cannot just expect the good ones to come to you by falling out of the sky. You need to recruit them actively.
A staffing agency knows where to find great CA and DC candidates. Furthermore, good candidates come to us to find a job. Our agency is a go-between that connects world-class staff with world-class practices.
We will help you with each step of the hiring process. We’ll find the best candidates with our sourcing and vet, interview, and walk you through the hiring process to save you time and money. In short, we make a significant burden off you so you can staff your practice quickly and focus on what you do best; practicing chiropractic.
Filling Chiropractic Staff Vacancies Quickly
Recent studies reveal that it takes over 40 days on average to fill an open position. This time frame is correct if you’re looking for a new Chiropractic Assistant. However, if you’re looking to hire a new Associate Doctor, it can take up to 120 days. This time doesn’t take into account the time to train an individual once they’ve started the job.
We will connect you with qualified candidates quickly so you can get to the business of training them and caring for patients again.
Taking too long to fill critical positions can really hurt your office. You will struggle with patient attraction, retention, and reactivation if you aren’t fully staffed. Being short-staffed can have a profoundly negative effect on your practice, and you may even eventually lose patients.
Chiro Match Makers can help you fill those critical positions as quickly as possible to avert a disaster.
Chiropractic Practice Scalability
Every chiropractic practice has its busy and slow seasons. We can help you recognize the right time to hire based on your busy times and help you scale up your team.
Having adequate staff ultimately saves you a lot of money. You do not overwork and burn out your current team when you have sufficient staffing. You also don’t have to pay anyone overtime when you have enough staff to do the jobs needed to grow your practice.
The Ability to Meet Goals
Every practice has a goal and a mission. You initially have the goal of helping patients. But you also need to make a living, which means you will have a financial output goal.
An open position will slow down the business, which affects your bottom line. A staffing agency will help you close the gaps in your staffing by filling your positions as quickly as possible. This, in turn, lets you meet your financial goals to achieve and exceed your financial projections.
Questions to Ask Yourself When Hiring
As you think about adding to your team, you must answer some critical questions before starting.
First and foremost, how many team members do you need? And then, which position do you hire first? Many chiropractic practices have now incorporated a front office CA, back office CA, and practice manager/COO.
Regarding who to hire, you should start with ensuring that your front desk is adequately staffed to maximize your patient experience and flow. A great Chiropractic Assistant can greet guests, answer phones, and interact well with your patients.
You should have the end goal of having a full-time office staff for whom you can provide top-quality benefits and a higher quality of life. In today’s competitive hiring environment, having robust benefits and perks can help you stand out from the crowd and attract top talent.
