Finding the best staff for farmers

Advice for farmers on how to attract the best staff and keep them will be offered at a workshop in Kaiwaka on Wednesday, September 11.

The Less Staff Stress event will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm at the Kaiwaka Sports Pavilion, off Gibbons Road, and will cover attracting, retaining and incentivising the best possible farm team.

There will be three sessions – motivating farm conversations to align employees’ goals with those of the farm; what modern staff are looking for and how to recruit and interview; and two breakout workshops – ways to save time on the farm without cutting corners, or incentivising staff on sheep and beef farms.

The event is a collaboration between Red Meat Profit Partnership, Dairy NZ, Beef + Lamb NZ and is sponsored by ANZ.
