Gallup research has quantified the massive impact employee engagement has on attendance, productivity, profitability and accident rates. Engaged people are motivated by the values of the business and work together to deliver great things. Engagement isn't delivered through generous salaries and benefit schemes, it comes when people feel respected and listened to, when they can see that they are supported by managers and colleagues and feel inspired to push for excellence. Recruitment is time consuming and costly, so it makes sound business sense to invest the required effort in keeping the good people you already have. In this session we'll look at data both from within the veterinary sector and beyond, identifying what workers want from their colleagues and employers and discussing ways to deliver them in your practice.
