How to Recruit and Retain after COVID-19
Dental practices were struggling to recruit and retain quality team members before the pandemic and due to COVID-19 many colleagues have chosen to leave the profession. At the same time a new generation of socially conscious candidates have entered the market who are looking to build their careers in businesses that resonate with their values. This has created the perfect storm of a ‘candidates market’ in dentistry resulting in the scenario where your team have a choice over where they work and you not only have to align your practice to recruiting these candidates, but also making your business a place they wish to work.
In this presentation, we will help you to understand useful recruitment strategies/techniques, as well as covering how to make your practice a business that people want to work for. We will discuss robust procedures to ensure that you attract the right skills and experience, highlight what CQC inspectors are looking for in personnel files and cover the increasing importance of corporate social responsibility and employee benefits. This presentation is useful for practice managers, owners and anyone wishing to improve these aspects in their practice.
- By the end of this session you should be able to:
- Avoid potentially costly mistakes when recruiting new team members
- Understand the key pre-engagement checks
- Implement measures to improve team member retention
