10 HR Tools For Medical Practices That'll Make Life 10x Easier

Y’know, HR has moved from a backend administration role to a frontline strategic function. We’re realizing that people are our most valuable assets. Attracting — and just as importantly, hanging on to — the right employees is essential to the success of your practice!

So what’s an HR pro to do? Why is HR important?

Seems like a lot of things have changed in the past decade. Everything is employee-focused: there are happy Fridays, free snacks and beverages, the possibility to work from home, etc.

Why is that?

Turnovers are ridiculously expensive! Studies say that that every time a business replaces a salaried employee, it costs 6 to 9 months’ salary on average. For a manager making $60,000 a year, that's $30,000 to $45,000 in recruiting and training expenses.

What now, when we know that?

Invest in HR! Make sure your business plans will be met. We know how much HR managers are important and we decided to give you a list of 10 must-have HR tools that will make their day easier.

So, let’s begin!

Built-in Training

Your employees join your company culture the second they walk into the office or log on to start working. Providing them with an HR tool that can integrate them into the team from day one can play a huge impact and start things off on the right foot.

With ‘My Assignments,’ ‘Courses’, and ‘Learning Tracks’ all in one place — keep your training and compliance up-to-date… always!

In addition to helping create a safe and secure work environment, criminal record checks can also produce other important benefits, such as:

  • Identifying potentially risky hires
  • Helping safeguard your organization’s reputation
  • Protecting organizational assets
  • ostering trust among current employees
