Human Resources

Simplify the complexities of managing people.

Let’s Get Started Contact BSM 

Your practice success has never depended more on your employees.

The success of a health care practice or ambulatory surgery center is driven primarily by its employees. They ultimately determine how well a facility functions and services its patients. However, the complexities of the health care business often leave little time to properly focus on the important "people aspects" of running an organization — the hiring, training, and administration of personnel. 

With that in mind, we created a series of programs, tools, and resources to help organizations build a more streamlined and effective employee management framework. Developed by our consultants who have real-world experience running health care facilities, our service packages address common staff management challenges frequently found in ophthalmology, dermatology, plastic surgery, and aesthetic medicine practices, as well as ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to ensure the "people aspect" does not get lost in the daily shuffle.

Leadership development

HR can only be effectively managed and administered by a qualified, supported leadership team. However, some leaders never received formalized training or leadership development. Our consultants help you design a development plan that will demonstrate your commitment to your leadership team, providing improvements in communication, project management, and effective leadership.

EMployee Wage Scale

Fair and competitive compensation is an essential factor in attracting and retaining talent. Still, it can be challenging to know how the practices' employee wages compare to others in the marketplace. This program evaluates the job title, tenure, and hourly wages for our eye care and aesthetic clients, including optical and ASC employees.

Employee Handbook

Employee handbooks memorialize practice policies, set expectations on topics such as cellphone use and dress code, and serve as a tangible management tool when addressing aberrant employee behavior. Our BSM Connection members enjoy access to an employee handbook template. But if you are looking for personalized support, our consultants can also help you review, update, or create new policies and procedures that align with current market trends.
