Dream Team

Staff is a resource – a human resource. “Human” Resources is all about the people. It is the personnel (PEOPLE) of a business organization. Let’s make HR Easy For You!!



What is “Human Resources” (HR)? It is the personnel (PEOPLE) of a business or organization. It is the department of a business or organization that deals with the hiring, administration, and training of personnel! “Human” Resources is all about the people. Does your practice have a Human Resources Department? Human Resource Management (HRM) focuses on the function of “people” within the business, ensuring best work practices are in place at all times. Doctor, are you trained in HR? Is your Office Manager trained in HR?

HR entails recruiting an employee, and you hire them. You hire them because they have a skill. You train them (you do have a training program, correct?). You give performance reviews. You train some more. With your leadership skills, you help them realize their potential by putting them in a leadership role in the practice. Is that HR for you?

Or is this HR? Constantly talking to an employee about being late every day. Is there a lot of gossiping? Is there a lot of conflict so that you must put out fires? Are you always short staffed so you have to continuously hire? Or do you have a revolving door with people leaving all the time? Is this what HR is to you?

HR is a big responsibility. HR is both of the examples above. Sometimes we don’t have all the answers. Make sure that you have the support and a team of experts that can help you find the right answers and help you feel confident in your role in HR.

Your team is your #1 asset! Doctor, you can’t do it alone (even though some days you might want to!)

Are you finding it difficult to hire the right team members? Are you stressed because you don’t have time? And you don’t have any help! So, you are the one to place the ad, read all the resumes, and then hire a warm body to fill your open position! Do you have a revolving door with lots of turnovers?

Finding and keeping the best and brightest team members is critical to your success. Often this process is rushed. Often the need is critical, and “anyone” is hired. This leads to bad hires which costs additional time and money to find the “right” fit. It doesn’t have to be this way! There is a way to build a team of employees who are willing and able to help you meet your goals!

Hiring is so extremely important. You will want to have the utmost confidence that the candidate is not only competent to assume the tasks and duties given to them but also that they possess the skills that will help you bring your practice to the next level.

Having a proven process will take the guesswork out of hiring the best candidate. a Personality Assessment will help determine how well they will work with you and how well they are suited to the position. All too often, someone is given a position without the aptitude or tools to perform.

The hiring of all positions in the dental practice is of utmost importance. Having a cohesive team that works well together is paramount to a successful practice. Kathy has developed a comprehensive system to help you hire your next team member. 3 Tiers of Hiring lets you choose what is right for you! Using the tools provided in these Tiers can accurately predict work performance and lead to increased employee productivity and retention.

Better hiring should be a high priority for you due to the financial impact and emotional stress associated with turnover.

Kathy Asted is passionate about hiring the “right” fit for your practice. Contact Kathy at or 612-518-2453 for more information.
