The last year and a half has been challenging. One of the hurdles I keep hearing from our customers are dental staffing issues. Employees quit, were laid off, or moved to another state. And as many other businesses these days, they are having a hard time hiring new employees.
According to an ADA poll, a third of dental practices were hiring dental assistants and a quarter were hiring dental hygienists.
As the dental world gets back on its feet, it’s important that you spend some time on team building to avoid high turnover rates. A lot of businesses are hiring now and according to SmallBizGenius, 79 percent of workers say company culture is a crucial factor.
With that in mind, we came up with some fun ideas to build up your team and help them connect in a non-work environment. When work gets stressful, those moments together will help your team push forward, and not give up on one another.
There are so many fun activities at various prices you can do as a team. The more team building activities you do together, the better you will work together and the better culture your business will have, leading to a more experienced team. Every business does better when there is harmony amongst all the players. Regardless of what you decide to do, do it together and make sure you split up into random groups so that everyone has a chance to socialize instead of hanging out with the person they usually talk to. Relationships are at the core of everyday life, and that is no less true for your work relationships.
