SPVS Wellbeing Award and Checklist in partnership with RCVS Mind Matters Initiative

What are the Wellbeing Awards?

SPVS in partnership with RCVS Mind Matters Initiative are turning the spotlight on practices where wellbeing is valued, inviting them to share what they are doing well with other owners and managers via their new ‘Wellbeing Award’.

The award recognises those practices with management systems and initiatives that motivate and engage their staff and who can demonstrate their commitment to being a better place to work.

Stress management is also a legal H&S requirement and a happy, healthy workforce is essential for successful business and helps you recruit and retain a top team.

Thank you to all who entered.  The judges were extremely impressed with both the quantity and quality of the entries for this first year.  SPVS in partnership with RCVS Mind Matters will be repeating the awards next year and may add some additional categories so do look out for details and please consider entering again in 2017.

SPVS Past President, Nick Stuart says:

There is much discussion within the profession about preventing mental illness and suicide. While this is vitally important, there can be a danger of painting too gloomy a picture of modern UK veterinary practice. These awards will help the understanding of mental wellbeing and the role this can play in job satisfaction with the knock on effects of reducing staff turnover and increasing profitability. They recognise that there are many many practices out there where the staff are motivated, feel valued, and look forward to coming into work each day!’.    

Why not try our Wellbeing Checklist which lets you do a mini audit of your practice performance and maybe pick up tips on other things you could be doing.
