Millennials are creating a complex cultural shift in veterinary hospitals. By 2025, they will make up well over 50% of your hospital staff. As you may have discovered, millennials don’t respond to the same kind of training practices that have been used for years in the veterinary field. In How to Train Your Millennial, we will discuss the ways millennials learn, how it is different from prior generations, the most efficient ways to help them receive and retain information, and how to communicate progress (or lack thereof) to trainees. Lastly, we will discuss an innovative way of keeping your employees engaged with the practice well after they are past the new hire phase, while providing relief and added time to your practice manager’s week.
