Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Workforce Crisis- Retaining Staff utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

The veterinary industry is facing a workforce crisis. Retaining and growing staff has never been more important. Employees are our most valuable assets, but do they know this? With the Great Resignation upon us, now is the time to change our focus to retention and talent management. If you don’t help them grow, you will watch them go

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • discuss multiple reasons to implement employee retention strategies
  • explain the significance of the “Great Resignation”
  • outline reasons that employees choose to leave and ways to proactively prevent turnover
  • utilize one or all of the employment retention strategies discussed to have a better outcome with staff retention
