Imagine your office manager comes to you today and says they are giving their two-week notice. Do you have a game plan? What if one of your physicians says they plan on retiring in six months? What happens when one of your shareholders or partners pulls out? Most reading this would say, “I don’t have a plan. What do I do now?” Well, you are not alone. Many medical practices have not started succession planning. Our best piece of advice is to start now.
Succession planning is all about having Plan B in your back pocket to replace those personnel in important positions that your practice cannot afford to lose without a backup.
When you start succession planning, you are setting your company up for success. At Zetter HealthCare, we identify the needs of your company and help you recognize your current employee’s potential. We teach you how to set up plans to improve your employees’ skills to prepare them to move up in the practice. More often than not, you are less likely to lose your most valuable employees to other companies when they are on your succession plan.
If you do not have a succession plan, start today. Zetter HealthCare can walk you through all of your options and come up with a game plan in the case that an important person decides to leave your practice. Contact Zetter HealthCare online or call us at (717) 691-6768.
