The primary challenge facing Veterinary practice owners today is employee retention. However, a shift in mindset is needed to tackle this issue effectively. Rather than seeking only “qualified candidates” with specific skills, the approach should prioritize hiring for cultural fit and training for skill.

This approach has been successful at The Drake Center for Veterinary Care, where the focus is on individuals who are good communicators, aligned with the practice’s culture, and genuinely interested in Veterinary medicine.
