OD Staff Employment Increases 5.8% in Past Year

Employment of non–OD staff by independent practice ODs increased 5.8% during the year ending June 2012. This shows a rebound from a sluggish hiring environment in 2010, when optometric staffs increased by just 1.8%. 39% of practices added one or more staff members during the past year, while just 11% decreased their staff.

Larger practices (nine or more staff members with an estimated $1 million+ annual gross revenue) were more likely to add staff during the past year.
