The internet is flooded with tips on self-care, work-life balance, and 1,001 other ways to prevent burnout. While trying to reach Zen can generally help, we wanted to look at the problem from a different perspective. What if there was a management strategy that could reduce or completely eliminate burnout in the workplace? What if veterinary organizations could create an environment that keeps employees eternally happy?
Dr. Ivan Zak spent sleepless nights looking for an answer. He went through dozens of books, endless pages of research and scientific literature, consulted with industry luminaries, studied best practices from human healthcare, polled nearly 1500 veterinary professionals, and finally came to the conclusion – lean thinking is the solution.
What is lean thinking? Within the context of veterinary organizations, it’s a business methodology that helps unlock employee potential, gives decision-making freedom, and empowers and engages the team through bottom-up management.
As the burnout rate among veterinary professionals keeps skyrocketing and two-thirds of veterinarians don’t recommend the profession, we cannot remain silent. We invite you to join our free webinar “Lean thinking to reduce burnout: application in veterinary organizations. Learnings from human healthcare” on December 2, at 11 a.m. EST.
