With dental professionals in short supply and high demand, attracting candidates is critical to your practice running smoothly and getting back to business. Making sure your job description resonates with potential candidates in the current climate is paramount.
So much has changed since offices shut down and reopened during the pandemic that job descriptions need to change, too. Aside from the usual – qualifications, experience level, days/hours, and compensation – there is a new standard (or there should be anyway) that includes addressing the safety, operations, culture and values of a practice group.
The transparency and ability to communicate your office culture to a potential employee cannot be understated or undervalued these days.
We all know that this is the #1 concern right now for dental professionals. Your ability to communicate new measures is key in breeding confidence and winning over potential candidates.
During Shut Down:
DentalPost’s polling data shows that not all practices are equal when it comes to employee offerings. If your office culture and benefits stand out, now is the time to toot your own horn.
Did you / do you…
Trust is the most important quality job seekers are looking for in an employer right now. Even if you didn’t do all the right things during the Covid-19 shutdown, showing that you learned and grew from the experience is almost as good as having done it right the first time. You get points for learning, growing and being willing to continue to get better. Together, you can work out the details, but it starts with trust.
