Make time for your people – Otago

Thursday, 18 November –

People are at the epicentre of our farm businesses, and ensuring employers and employees have strong relationships and a good work-life balance is key to the future of the industry. Moving the dial on the importance of attracting and retaining great people in the dairy industry is the focus of this workshop and webinar series. This is a free event funded by MPI.

Face-to-face workshops will set the scene around being a great employer and employee. Attendees will gain knowledge about employment contracts and rosters, salary packages, accommodation requirements, as well as growth opportunities, wellbeing and building strong team relationships.

Presenters are all experts in their field: Lee Astridge – No8HR, Rebecca Miller – Dairy Business of the Year award winner, and Kylie Jackson from New Zealand payroll software company, PaySauce.

A series of live webinars will then delve deeper into the topics addressed in the workshops, ensuring that attendees are equipped with the right knowledge, resources, and tangible steps to turn their farm team into a Farmily™.
