Hiring the Ideal Team: Part 4

#4 Keys to Hiring the Best People

Do not be afraid to ask a candidate what their professional goals are and where they see themselves in 2-3 years. This will aide you in deciding if this aligns with your company’s goals and what you have available in a position within your practice. For instance, if you have a chair side technician interviewing for an assistant position and you ask where they see themselves, professionally in 2-3 years and they answer, ‘As an Office Manager’, it’s important that you are aware of these desires ahead of time. This allows for clarity if and when something like this may be available or to allow you to state that this is not the direction you see being available within that time frame. The goal is to hire individuals that align with the needs and desires of the practice and will fit into the goals of the possible team member, as well.

Remember, when you're offering someone a job, they're not just coming on board to help you and your organization. It's on you to make sure you create an environment where each of your employees can achieve their own goals as well, and the only way to do that is to make sure everyone's on the same page from the very beginning: that's Job One, Day One. So it's key that you understand each candidate's personal and professional goals and make sure they align with your company's goals... and yours!
