Rerun: Building an Allied Health Team

This Solo Episode features Cathy as she shares her thoughts on how to build a successful Allied Heath team. It’s a question that often excites her, as it means the business is ready to grow and flourish. 

You’ll hear as she discusses why the word “team” is preferred as opposed to “staff”, as well as the importance of investing your time in working with an HR professional to understand position descriptions and contracts. She also talks in-depth about independent contractors versus employees, including what you need to look out for – plus she covers a key piece on casual employees as well. 

Topics covered on building a team and not staff, the model of engagement for recruitment, and getting HR advice: 

  • Jeremy Streten’s helpful book The Business Legal Lifecycle (see link below), the differences between “staff” and “team”, and building a team on the admin front. 
  • A VA as an alternative, and the key differences you need to know between independent contractors and employees.  
  • Being HR smart, investing in time working with an HR professional, and investing in your leadership and management knowledge.

  • Jeremy Stratten’s BookThe Business Legal Lifestyle: How to Successfully Navigate Your Way from Start Up to Success
