A Large multi-specialty group (MSG) had been dealing with low productivity and low worker satisfaction for many years. Employee turnover had become a huge problem for this organization. With low productivity and low worker satisfaction, patient care had become a major concern for the MSG physicians.
Employee retention was a difficult task for the office manager. The office was open seven days a week and often didnï¿½t close until late in the evening. All employees had to make sure they were able to accommodate the schedule by committing to work at least one evening a week in addition to working weekends. With more than ten Physicians at any given time and at least five Physician Assistants, the environment was very fast paced. The current staff was unable to efficiently handle the high volume practice.
The office manager, after running continuous ads and conducting numerous interviews without success, called Davis-Smith for a professional solution. After an onsite consultation, Davis-Smith healthcare human resource experts utilized multifaceted solutions for their unique staffing needs.
Davis-Smith recruited candidates who were specifically able to work nights and weekends.
Candidates presented possessed multiple skills including clinical and front office skills needed to perform tasks that were required.
All candidates were screened for their experience in performing quality customer service to patients, especially during times when the office was extremely busy.
Candidates were background checked, referenced and drug screened.
Due to the quality candidates provided by Davis-Smith, MSG hired many of them permanently. The smooth transition during this process was created by continuous communication between all parties.
Davis-Smith's long-term solutions allowed management and physicians to focus on patient care and business efficiencies rather than employee search, selection and retention.
