Top 5 Employee Benefits Infographic

When trying to attract the best talent to your organization, it is important to step back and consider which employee benefits your future new hires could benefit from the most and which might help your opportunity stand out from others. In the Dental, Eye Care, and Medical industries, competition for qualified upper level leadership professionals and administrators is often high among practices, so putting together a comprehensive and attractive benefits package, paired with a competitive salary, is a great way to make sure you’re attracting the very best candidates out there.

Our recruiters at Practice Management Connections speak directly with hundreds of candidates, hiring managers, and practice owners every month. In all of those conversations, several employee benefits have risen to the top as the most commonly requested among candidates when evaluating opportunities. We took an informal poll among our recruiters and have compiled a “Top 5” list for each of the industries we cover, noting which employee benefits are most likely to sway a candidate’s decision to say “yes” or “no” to an opportunity:
