AVA Employer of Choice

25 May 2022

Dr Brian Anderson received the AVA Employer of Choice Accreditation Award from the President of the AVA, Dr Warrick Vale.  
The award was received at the AVA Gold Coast conference on 23rd May 2022
The Partners and staff are excited to announce that the Ballarat Veterinary Practice has been awarded AVA Employer of Choice Accreditation!
Proudly, we are the first veterinary business in Australia to achieve this!
Last year, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) launched Employer of Choice (EOC) Accreditation to complement the Employer of Choice (EOC) Program. AVA EOC accreditation is a rigorous process. It assesses each veterinary business' internal Human Resources practices, policies and procedures via an external audit which is conducted independently by the AVA HR Advisory Service. AVA EOC Accreditation is awarded to practices in recognition of their commitment to meeting the national employment quality standards for recruitment, engagement and retention.
In April 2022, The Ballarat Veterinary Practice (BVP) including Ballarat Veterinary Practice, Ballarat Equine Clinic, Wendouree Veterinary Clinic, Lucas Veterinary Clinic, Eureka Veterinary Clinic and Mt Clear Vets achieved EOC accreditation.
BVP's Human Resources Manager, Claire McAteer, said "The AVA's Employer of Choice Program sets out the components of a modern, healthy and supportive workplace...We thoroughly recommend and endorse the AVA's Employer of Choice program to other practices, and we really hope it results in a stronger working environment across the whole veterinary industry."
