Episode 88: Why You Don’t Need a Human Resources Director in Your Clinic

Every office we’ve worked with that has an Human Resources professional on staff, we’ve noticed a culture of fear among the staff. The overwhelming majority of these offices are mom and pop offices. In this podcast, Brian strives to bring these truths to light on how to confront them in his usual no-nonsense and honest fashion.


  • When an HR professional is present, no one is comfortable. Get the fear in your office out of the way – the overwhelming majority of owners are good, trustworthy people. 
  • The information needed to have effective and legitimate HR policies is available to you, or have someone on retainer to consult when you absolutely need this information. 
  • Attend conferences such as PPS and CSM, take good notes, and study and you will get the information that you need.
  • Have a systematic and consistent onboarding program, as well as a compliance officer.
  • You have to know how to handle employees who aren’t aligning with group morale or company culture. This starts with being honesty and clear communication.  
  • There has to be accountability and consequences for insubordination.
  • you can not manage over disagreement, you can not manage when someone doesn’t have the shared reality that they are apart of a team.
  • Have solid systems of acknowledgement and validation. Your staff meetings should be 50% acknowledgment, 50% enhancement and professionalism training. You owe it to your staff to ensure they are growing personally and professionally.
