IVC Evidensia Global Employee Survey 2023 - Have your say

The IVC Evidensia Global Employee Survey is open for your feedback until 10 March 2023. Look out for your invitation and reminders in your work email inbox.

The survey is crucial to helping drive improvement action planning in line with our People Promise of being a great place to work, as part of our shared purpose of Healthy Animals, Happy Owners. 

We hope you’ll take the opportunity to share your thoughts!




Initiatives that focus on healthy animals and welfare

As part of delivering our purpose of 'Healthy Animals, Happy Owners', we have ongoing projects that support the welfare of animals across the Group.
The IVC Evidensia Care Fund has now supported our vets and vet nurses across Europe with providing critical treatment for over 5,000 of the most seriously ill animals where the chances of recovery are good but the cost of treatment is challenging. Read more about the Care Fund here.
To help support veterinary professionals, no matter who they work for, with diagnosing and dealing with Non-Accidental Injury (NAI), which can be a sign that the welfare of an animal is at risk, in the UK and Ireland we distributed more than 2,000 QR code stickers to easily link visitors at the London Vet Show with support. 
We are supporting a Parliamentary enquiry into ear cropping of dogs in the UK, which would help prevent ear cropping and importing of ear-cropped dogs. We're looking into pursuing a similar approach in Europe, to help end this cruel practice.

Look out for more of the great work going on globally to support animal welfare in future bulletins.
