Ensure your employees stick with you by giving them what they desire most.
Regardless of industry, top-notch employees are in high demand. When you find a quality staff member—whether that employee is a tech or therapist—you want to hang on to him or her. But retaining high-quality team members is tricky, and if you fail to do so, your business certainly will suffer.
Nowadays, there’s a ton of talk about developing the most attractive benefit packages—that is, what can employers offer to retain their best and brightest? Sure, fair salaries, ample vacation time, and solid medical benefits are smart plays, but the true secret to employee retention has nothing to do with paychecks or health plans. I’m talking about growth opportunities.
How do you continually open pathways for growth within your business? How do you ensure your employees are always challenged and growing professionally? Check out my two-minute video to learn why growth potential is the key to employee retention and how you can execute a professional growth strategy within your practice.

Before automating his practice using systems and grade-A staff, Jamey was working 60-plus hours a week, missing his kids’ events, and worrying about pulling in enough money to make ends meet. The stress kept building, which caused his confidence to plummet.
