What you can learn from her: When Hollingsworth made the decision to increase her professional and support staff by more than a third over the past year, she hired in pairs to make the onboarding process more efficient. “It also provided each new employee with a buddy to bounce ideas off and learn the practice with,” she explains. “And if a new hire hadn’t worked out, we wouldn’t have wasted time and energy on training.”
