The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has been awarded the Laureate Award by the Great Place to Work initiative, for being within the top 50 best places to work in the UK for five consecutive years.
The RCVS received this award, along with the rank of ‘28th Best Medium-sized Place to Work in the UK 2019’, at the Great Place to Work awards dinner on 8 May.
RCVS chief executive officer, Lizzie Lockett, said: “I am so proud of our performance in the Great Place to Work Awards and the efforts of everyone at the College, and especially our HR team, who have been tirelessly and creatively striving to make the College a wonderful place to work.
“Consistently being placed in the top 50 Great Places to Work is also a testament to the sustained hard work all of our employees and the important part they play in creating a supportive, interesting and good-humoured workplace.
“We are a service-led organisation and we want to make sure that we give our best to the veterinary professions and the general public. If our team enjoys the work, and the workplace, that will improve the service we are able to offer and, ultimately, benefit animal health and welfare.”
