Hiring strategies to get a winning remote team

The Great Resignation experienced throughout 2022 will forever be remembered as the era that reshaped the global job market. Many people either quit their jobs or started actively looking for better employment opportunities. The dental industry wasn’t spared of this phenomenon and to this day staffing issues are still rife.

SupportDDS took to try and resolve these staffing issues by employing solutions that would save dental business owners on costs while improving efficiency. The result was a unique approach to the age-old outsourcing that gave dental businesses dedicated bilingual team members who can be fully equipped,  trained and ready to tackle a wide range of tasks.

That being said SupportDDS still leaves the power of choosing your ideal team member or members in the hands of the client. This came with one problem, how to choose from such a large pool of trained professionals. In this article, we look at tips to select the right team member for your dental business.

Prioritize Customer Service  

The biggest beneficiary of a good candidate is your patients. First impressions make for a lasting impression so Look for candidates who not only have the necessary technical skills but also excel in communication and interpersonal skills. Patients value a friendly and empathetic demeanour in their dental care providers.

Emphasize Teamwork

Remote teams have one Achilles heel, they work far from your team. SupportDDS has resolved this by offering dedicated team members who work solely for you and integrate with your team. This means when looking for your next team member look for candidates who demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively with others and contribute positively to the team dynamic.

Invest in Training and Development

Provide ongoing training and development opportunities for your team to stay updated on the latest advancements in dentistry and patient care techniques. This not only enhances their skills but also shows your commitment to their professional growth.

Offer Competitive Benefits

In addition to competitive salaries, consider offering attractive benefits such as healthcare coverage, retirement plans, paid time off, and opportunities for career advancement. A comprehensive benefits package can help attract and retain top talent.

Focus on Cultural Fit

Hiring individuals who align with your practice's values and culture is essential for fostering a positive work environment. Look for candidates who share your commitment to providing high-quality patient care and maintaining a positive and supportive workplace culture.

Offer Unique Perks

Consider offering unique perks or incentives to attract top talent. This could include flexible work hours, opportunities for continuing education or advanced training, wellness programs, or employee recognition initiatives.

Seek Referrals

Encourage your current employees to refer qualified candidates to your practice. Employee referrals can be a valuable source of top talent and often result in hires who are a good fit for your practice culture.

Provide Opportunities for Growth

Demonstrate to potential candidates that your practice is committed to their long-term career growth and development. Offer opportunities for advancement within the practice, such as leadership roles or specialized training programs.

Promote Your Practice Brand

Showcase what makes your dental practice unique and attractive to potential employees. Highlight your practice's commitment to patient care, community involvement, and employee satisfaction through your website, social media channels, and recruitment materials.
