September 20th ColoVMA Fall Convention-Practice Management Workshop

Embassy Suites, Loveland, CO

Retaining and Attracting Quality Veterinary Team Members

You read on social threads and in journals about the shortage of trained, qualified veterinary team members, but what are the reasons? We understand the need because managers are continually on the look-out for loyal veterinary team members. Now, let’s define solutions! National and local statistics point to demand, and during the workshop we dive deep into these numbers. Is attrition due to salary, or are there other reasons people leave the practice and the industry? Together we will explore team attrition and retention. Plus offer suggestions in attracting team members for the long haul. Join us for an interactive workshop, designed to be thought provoking, full of tangible resources and FUN! For those registering, there will be reading materials and an anonymous survey to customize discussion in team turnover and retention for the attendees.
