A webinar will give farmers insights into how they can attract and retain farm staff in the difficult labour market. Four speakers will discuss how New Zealand can design dairy workplaces to attract great employees. These include flexible rosters and pay scales; fostering leaders not managers; developing safe workplace cultures and sharing a common purpose on-farm. DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle, who is one of the speakers says dairy is experiencing a significant workforce shortage and many farmers are looking at how to recruit the right staff in time for calving. He says the workforce shortage is putting significant pressure both on farm teams and on farmers trying to recruit new staff and the webinar will offer advice on how farmers can turn workplaces into better working environments. The DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum webinar is at 7-8pm on Wednesday week. Farmers can register dairynz.co.nz
