According to the 20th Annual Salary and Expense Survey from Chiropractic Economics, 59% of U.S. chiropractic offices are owned and operated by a solo practitioner.
On average, solo practitioners spend 35 hours a week seeing patients. That doesn’t include all the other tasks associated with running a business. Attracting, interviewing and hiring a competent, experienced chiropractor can be time-consuming. Why not let a chiropractic staffing agency dedicated to chiropractors do the heavy lifting?
Why chiropractic owners should hire a chiropractic staffing agency
Chiropractic staffing agencies operate differently than traditional staffing or employment agencies. They specialize in finding the best chiropractors to fill positions for practice owners (clients). Most chiropractic staffing agencies are owned by a former practicing chiropractic physician. They have dedicated staff who work with clients and job-seeking chiropractors looking for work.
Reputable chiropractic staffing agencies attract the best talent. They have relationships with all the chiropractic schools. They screen for state board and malpractice claims. They validate state licenses.
Attracting, screening and placing chiropractors is all they do. Their main goal is to meet the needs of clients. A successful placement means a happy client. The goal for good agencies should be making a mutually beneficial match between the associate and the client.
