Episode 36 - Are you RETAINING your crucial employees to improve loyalty? 4 of 4
As we wrap up the 3 R's to employee culture and compensation, the last one that is commonly misunderstood is how to retain employees. There are certain programs that can be viewed as retention like a 401(k) and health insurance benefits but those ultimately do not keep the most valuable people. During this conversation, we're going to dive into what defines a key employee and ways to compensate those employees so they will stick around for a long time.

Episode 35 - Do you actually have a plan or are you settling?
Spoiler alert. We’re all human. And it’s hard to change when we’re so used to doing things a certain way for a long time. The easiest thing we can do is do nothing. Keep the job we don’t like. Keep the same advisor even though they haven’t talked to us in years. Keep our mouths shut whenever there is something bothering us. There are certain things like your financial plan that can be difficult to fix later because time is our biggest enemy. Join us while we talk about how you might be settling without even knowing it.

I enjoy listening to the variety of topics CJ and Tom cover. They have interesting conversations that are helpful with present day finances and in planning for the future. I recommend to vet students, associate vets and hospital owners alike. I guarantee you’ll learn something beneficial to your household, career or business!
These podcasts are great! As a vet student, I’ve learned a lot through listening. You guys are hitting on some very important topics and are doing a great job of breaking them down. I am loving the personal financial topics and really enjoyed the three part series on buying or starting a vet practice. I love that this group fills the need for financial advising specific to the profession and is actively educating on platforms such as this. Every veterinary student needs to be subscribed!
As a veterinary student nearing graduation, I am SO glad to have stumbled across this podcast. I will certainly continue following and eagerly awaiting more financial pearls of wisdom to come!
