162: Creating an Effective Onboarding Process
You had a vacancy in your team.
After months of searching, it looks like you may have finally found just the right fit.
Uh oh…now what?
If you’re like most dentists, the typical routine involves having the new employee “shadow” the departing team member or another member of your team, until they “get it.” In fact, this is exactly how I brought on new employees for years.
Bad News: this is NOT an effective method of training.
But don’t beat yourself up- most dentists that I speak to admit that they do not have an effective training and onboarding process for their new hires.
