Active Foot Clinic Podiatry

Active Foot Clinic Podiatry has been dedicated to providing quality podiatry services to regional clinics in the Riverina (south-western New South Wales) for 13 years. Now boasting a growing team of 19 employees with a range of skills and backgrounds, Active Foot Clinic Podiatry are now continuing to expand their services throughout the Riverina and other areas of New South Wales.

High Turnover

Active Foot Clinic Podiatry were experiencing a period of high staff turnover. A major issue was that they needed to put a lot of training into employees. The turnover was extremely costly and time consuming. Growth was stifled, not only because of the lost management time, but also due to the lack of experience in existing staff to assist expansion.

This challenge led Active Foot Clinic Podiatry to search for a solution.

There were a number of features of Mind Insurance that attracted Active Foot Clinic Podiatry to use the platform, but what appealed the most was the use of assessments and tools that have been proven under empirical scrutiny to have real human benefits.

Improved patient outcomes

Implementation

In conjunction with workshops from Mind Insurance CEO and founder Mel Neil, all 19 employees including the executive team at Active Foot Clinic Podiatry are using the platform, and it has been worked into their staff onboarding process to help people integrate into the company more quickly.

Since its implementation the platform has been found to be helping with processes across the entire business.

“Having everyone in the organisation aligned and pushing together makes a huge difference. To be aware of the team's subjective wellbeing can help us to know when to tweak and when to push-forward.”

Benefits & Impact On Workflow

The biggest benefit that Active Foot Clinic Podiatry has seen is the personal development of their employees. Their staff are now in a position to take on management roles, and Active Foot Clinic Podiatry have been able to utilise this to expand their business using their employees rather than being completely reliant on the owners.

Since implementing the platform into their business the only staff changes that have been experienced has been people who really did not share the same values as the rest of the team and organisation.

Aside from incorporating the platform into Active Foot Clinic Podiatry’s staff onboarding process, they have also experienced more efficient recruitment processes as the owners, and management teams, have been more aware of finding people who are the right fit for the business.

All of these factors have been found to have significantly improved their workflow.

“We were more a top down organisation, now we have a whole staff pushing forward.”

Human & Business Benefits

“I have seen companies put into attempts to address worker welfare, only to spend a lot of money and achieve only placebo results. This is a platform that addresses people on an individual level, bonds them with each other and the goals and values of the business. The platform is absolutely worthwhile. The security of knowing you have a contented, productive workforce gives not only peace of mind, but the confidence to push the team further to achieve even more. What I love most about the product is that it is about personal development, and yet it brings so many benefits to the business as well.”
