Leadership for recruitment and retention
Recruitment and retention has never been more important, with over 50% of veterinary practices reporting a shortfall of staff in 2017. The profession is struggling to meet the need. This session will define veterinary leadership and why it matters for recruitment and retention. We will examine what type of leadership is, and isn’t, needed in today’s practice to attract and connect with potential team members; build a positive reputation; and progress autonomy, mastery and purpose for the team, ensuring individual career satisfaction and movement towards the common business purpose.

- Appreciate the core elements of effective short, medium and long-term recruitment and retention
- Reflect on the positive and negative effect of leadership behaviours on recruitment and retention
