Showcasing Australia’s current Lincoln Institute

Leadership Accredited

Employers of Choice 2023 – 2024

Recognising the achievement of attaining and maintaining the highest level of leadership qualification currently available for Veterinary Professionals in Australia and New Zealand.

Now in the sixth year of operation – Lincoln Institute’s Employer of Choice Accreditation is well established as the highest level of recognition available in Australia. This award symbolises the completion of three years of leadership, personal and team development. This is no “self assessment check list” token award as you may find offered by other organisations.

The majority of talented people won’t become disengaged, unproductive or leave a Practice because of the business or what it represents but because of the way they are treated by their employer or manager.
