Guidance on rebuilding businesses

Statistics from

The challenges of rebuilding businesses in a ‘new normal’ environment are highlighted in a business re-emergence manual created by the Veterinary Management Group (VMG) for its members.

The VMG says the peer-reviewed manual has been designed to be relevant for any veterinary business and has been developed following a detailed review of contemporary academic and business literature, with expert input from the VMG board of directors.

The manual suggests that as they plan for recovery, businesses should consider:

• People – including new working patterns, communication, training needs and transition plans;

• Planet – including sustainability issues, environmental considerations and animal welfare;

• Profit – including cash flow, profit and loss and service provision.

With guidance on each of these areas, the manual encourages practice leaders to consider the factors most relevant for their organisation and to think about short-term, medium-term and long-term priorities.

The VMG is pausing subscription renewals for its existing members for three months. It is also offering everyone in the sector the chance to join the association for three months, free of charge.
