Does the pressure of filling an open job position have you sweating bullets? Matching a candidate’s skills and abilities to a particular role is no easy feat, but my hiring process strategy can help you shed some of the stress.

Physical therapists have a process for just about everything—except hiring. And not having a comprehensive hiring process can be costly for your practice—not only in terms of money, but also with respect to morale. After all, there’s a lot of pressure to fill an open position with exactly the right person—especially if you’ve just lost a really great employee.

That’s why I developed my own five-step hiring process. Here’s how it goes:

  1. Post your ad.
  2. Conduct a phone interview.
  3. Hold an in-person interview.
  4. Complete a work interview.
  5. Start training.

This industry-tested process is the reason I was able to hire the majority of my amazing employees—without spiking my blood pressure. For a more detailed description of each step, check out my two-minute video.

Jamey has been a PT business owner himself since 1998, so he has plenty of experience in dealing with the challenges that every owner faces: generating more new patients, overseeing financials, managing staff, and handling the stress of juggling many different roles.

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. Nowadays, Jamey uses his 13-plus years of PT experience and vast business knowledge to provide one-of-kind courses that show practitioners how to double patient volume and increase take-home pay by 50%—all in less than six months.
