3 keys to retaining, hiring dental talent, per Sage Dental exec

David Tripp, senior vice president and chief human resources officer at Sage Dental, connected with Forbes in an Aug. 8 article to give advice on how DSOs can engage, hire and retain dental talent.

Three pieces of advice from Mr. Tripp:

1. Keep in touch with qualified candidates. Maintaining consistent personal engagement keeps the candidate interested. Get to know who they are, their expectations and their approach to patient care.

2. Use financial incentives for current and potential employees. Sometimes, a sign-on bonus can be a candidate's deciding factor when considering their offers. Employee referral programs can aid recruitment by rewarding staff for referring new team members who maintain employment for a certain amount of time. Employee rewards programs can create a more enjoyable work environment while increasing socialization and driving internal communications among the team.

3. Create a positive work environment. Consider establishing an intranet page to give the team an internal space to communicate. The page can be a place for employees to share community information, such as volunteer opportunities or events.
