HR for Health Feature Spotlight: New Hire Onboarding

HR for Health
Posted by HR for Health on September 28, 2021

If you manage a Dental, Optometry, or Veterinary practice, your days are busy enough without new hire HR issues. A disorganized onboarding process not only costs practices precious time and money, but it can get promising new hires off on the wrong foot. Research shows that high turnover rates cost the healthcare industry millions, and that 75% of the reasons team members quit are preventable.

A single missing I-9 can cost you between $500 and $5,000 for a first offense.


Our New Hire Checklist: Easy for New Employees & Easy for Managers

Minimizing productivity drains, human resources mishaps, and other new hire blind spots starts with a powerful onboarding tool. A comprehensive, cloud-based new hire checklist simplifies the onboarding process, reducing time spent and mistakes made when onboarding your new employees. It’s easy to imagine the immediate benefits of implementing such tools especially when it's integrated with a human resources platform. You can automate required documents, simplify payroll, access on-demand HR support, and more with HR for Health software.

Why Our New Hire Checklist Rocks

The HR for Health new hire checklist is easy to use, and takes the mundane parts of onboarding, speeding them up so you and your team can get back to doing what you do best.

Even if you and your employees are all-star organizers who never forget tasks or misplace documents, there's no reason to work harder than you have to. Without onboarding technology in place, you place a heavy burden on yourself and your team to handle everything manually and rely on memory to get things done.

The risks associated with incomplete or incorrect new hire documents are uncomfortably high — fines, penalties, and legal fees can get very expensive. For example, a single missing I-9 can cost you between $500 and $5,000 for a first offense.

Why Dentists, Optometrists, and Veterinarians Need a New Hire Checklist

A new hire checklist will revolutionize your level of confidence in managing your team like a pro. In addition, it will give you peace of mind on those busy days when you don't have time to think about onboarding tasks or remind a new employee of everything they need to do. Here are just a few of the benefits of automating your onboarding process with a new hire checklist.

Here's How to Automate Your New Hire Onboarding Process

Stay Healthcare HR Compliant

No need to keep track of compliance on your own. Our new hire checklist lets you know what location-specific documents you need and updates your checklist when regulations change. Whether you're a dentist, an optometrist, a veterinarian, or other healthcare practice, compliance is critical and our new hire checklists are tailored to your specific industry needs.

Get Organized and Save Paper

Say goodbye to stacks of tedious onboarding documents and revitalize your storage system. Our new hire checklist provides the online HR support you need all while eliminating the need for physical signatures and auto-sends documents straight to new employees. Office Managers can stay more organized and get more done.

Manage Your Entire Healthcare Workforce

Professionals like Dentists, Optometrists, and Veterinarians already have high demands on their time. A new hire checklist can help you manage both employees and independent contractors like hygienists by making sure the right people receive the right documents in a timely fashion.

Standardize Your New Hire Onboarding

Never worry about your team members having different levels of knowledge about your practice. Standardize expectations from the start, share the same details with everyone, and make sure all employees' information is documented in the same secure digital location.

Customize Your New Hire Onboarding

Our new hire onboarding checklist is customizable. Add any documents that are important to your unique practice and retrieve them anytime from any device, whether you run several locations or just one.

How to Automate Onboarding

Depending on your state, there are 12-18 documents required for your dental, optometry, or veterinary practice to legally onboard a new  hire. Non-disclosure agreements, I-9 forms, direct deposit forms, and more can quickly clog up your practice's filing system and make it harder to find things. This complicates tax time and may even set you up for a stressful HR audit down the line.

With a new hire checklist, you save countless hours on meticulous tasks that become automatic. As a result, practices can quickly reap a huge return on their investment with a better performing workforce and no risk of compliance issues. When your hygienists and employees are focused, unencumbered by details that draw their attention away from primary job functions, both your patients and your team can thrive effortlessly.
