Office Managers: How to Get a Raise in 2018
“If I haven’t been offered a raise in two years, is it because I am mediocre?”
Everyone needs money to pay their bills and plan for the future and retirement, yet many people barely make it paycheck to paycheck. The question always comes up at some point: “How do I get a raise?” If you’re doing an adequate job and are there forty hours a week working, that should be enough to get an annual raise. Right? Wrong.
In case you haven’t noticed, the world of business has changed and the world of dental business is certainly changing with it. The dental office manager of today must have management skills along with the ability to utilize newer technology to keep a practice in the black.
Let’s look at the basics first:
Do you arrive to work on time, ready to hit the ground running?
Are you part of the office drama?
Are you contributing to production?
Show how your productivity is helping the practice grow. Ask the dentist(s) to meet monthly and review things that worked and constructively mention things that can improve. Offer solutions to solve the issues that you have observed. As a practice owner, receiving valuable input for the practice is impressive and shows you have a “buy in” attitude about the practice business solvency. If your excellent work and dedication help the practice to grow and prosper, you have paid for your wage increase.
Are you a “lone wolf” or part of the team?
These are the basics to getting a raise. Other skills that dentist CEOs look for include someone who can communicate beyond the office into the world of website design, writing content, blogging, SEO (search engine optimization) and multi-level marketing through social media.
