Local farmers are being urged to attend a free masterclass in dairy employment, which will share techniques and tips for recruitment and staffing, hosted by Murray Dairy.
People are recognised by farmers as one of the most crucial elements to success in their business.
Dairy farmers who employ staff are often seeking new ideas and strategies to be a preferred place of employment in a competitive market for dairy farm workers.
Murray Dairy and Dairy Australia are offering farmers the chance to hear contemporary ways to build on their current management of employees though a masterclass on recruitment and retention and how to further develop their staff and manage the more difficult staffing issues.
The workshops, which will be held at Echuca, Numurkah and Tallangatta, will be led by Mandy Johnson, a best-selling author, engaging speaker and business adviser who will share with dairy farmers the best techniques to help business recruitment and solve employment issues.
Mandy completely changed her approach to managing staff with great success and now shares this experience — and the free tools she developed — with many businesses and industries across Australia.
Dairy farmers who had previously participated in workshops with Mandy suggested Dairy Australia should offer the same sessions to the wider dairy community due to the relevance and impact the learnings had on their own dairy businesses.
The workforce masterclass will have an emphasis on innovative techniques for solving recruitment and retention problems in businesses, increasing business profitability and assisting in achieving goals in the current challenging environment.
The workshops are free and a meal will be provided for attendees.
●The workshops will be held on Thursday, March 16, from 10.30am to 2pm at the Mercure Port of Echuca and from 6.30pm to 9pm at the Numurkah Shamrock Hotel.
