If veterinary medicine was a casino, in employment terms the practice manager would be “the house” and the associate veterinarian would be “the player.” In an environment, where both parties are generally risk adverse, the option of commission based pay can be the best bet for both the house and the player. Commission based pay provides a way for the practice to transfer some of the risk to the associate and for the associate, commission based compensation presents an opportunity to earn above average wages. This webinar will explore ways to entice both practice owner and associates toward commission based pay.
