Vet Group Amongst Britain’s Best Employers For The 6th Year Running

White Cross, the Yorkshire-based, family-run, 18-practice group has been named amongst the Sunday Times ‘Best 100 Best Small Companies To Work For’ for the sixth year running.

The group, who have a practice in St Helens, attributes part of its success to the various initiatives it runs for employees, including a scheme through which every member of its 220-strong team is allowed five fully paid donation days each year so they can volunteer to support meaningful local causes.

Employees also receive a £500 cash gift when they become new parents or adopt a child and can take ‘peternity leave’, which offers anyone with a new pet two fully paid days off work to help the animal settle into their new home.

Team members also get birthdays off (with cakes), a health care scheme, subsidised Fitbits and gym memberships.

Tim Harrison, managing director at White Cross Vets, said: “Making White Cross Vets a great place to work is vitally important to us, especially because our people are such a fundamental part of our success. Plus we’ve just launched the second of five new practices that will open during a 12-month period, so we’re continually expanding and recruiting.

“Being at the forefront of the veterinary industry with a wide range of innovative and high-quality employment initiatives, many of which are ideas from individual team members, helps us to attract and retain the best people. This enables us to grow quickly whilst fostering a close-knit and highly motivated team. This ethos also translates into the level of care and standard of service that our clients receive, which is something we’re very proud of.”
