The first step in hiring for any position in your practice is to write a job description. When composing a job description, you should describe:
- The purpose and responsibilities of the position,
- The daily and periodic duties of the position,
- Lines of authority, and
- The specific qualifications needed.
A well-written job description is more than an advertising tool. It also can:
- Help determine salary and benefits,
- Serve as the basis for performance reviews and appraisals,
- Help employees understand their role within the practice, and
- Identify areas for staff training.
