Free Tools to Retain Staff and Attract New Talent

Veterinary practices everywhere are asking what they can do to retain staff and attract talent. In response, we created our Veterinary Staffing & Employee Retention Kit that addresses four big issues that impact staffing and retention.

A recent LifeLearn survey of 100+ veterinary professionals revealed what you probably already know from experience. The majority (42.2%) said staffing and employee retention is their number one practice challenge. Because of increased workloads and exhaustion due to staffing and employee retention issues, stress and burnout unsurprisingly ranked second (20.5%), and poor team morale ranked third (18.1%). 

Naturally, the two latter issues further cause staffing and employee retention challenges, creating a vicious cycle that ultimately undermines the overall sustainability of the veterinary environment. 

“Yes, I’m aware of all this. I’m in it. The question is, what can I do about staffing and employee retention, and can you help?” 

That’s certainly the important question now being asked by busy, understaffed, and exhausted veterinary teams everywhere: “What can I do about it? 

Given the scope of the issue and how long problems have gone on, we certainly can’t provide all information to help practice owners, operators, and management address all factors affecting staffing and employee retention. Yet we can help practices with four big factors currently impacting staffing and employee retention. 

Moreover, we can help with specific, research-backed information (further supported with free, downloadable, practical tools and resources) to help practices make decisions, serve staff in an evidential way, and make tangible improvements to staffing and employee retention. 

It’s all in our free Veterinary Staffing & Employee Retention Kit.
