Staff: HR Toolkit

Offering practical and effective solutions for dairy farmers, the HR Toolkit helps them develop better employer / employee relationships, resulting in less stress in staff management, improved work performance, improved business performance and more attractive jobs for employees.

The HR toolkit is a must for larger organisations with dedicated HR teams. For farms employing up to 3 or 4 people we suggest starting with QuickStart Kits as an easy, practical and effective introduction to HR.   


The HR Toolkit is FREE to all New Zealand levy paying dairy farmers.  It can also be purchased by non-dairy farmers operating in New Zealand for $175 (incl. GST).

Re-published in 2008, the HR toolkit has become recognised as an invaluable resource for farmers, containing best practice recommendations for a wide range of staff management processes, from job analysis through to performance management.

The HR toolkit contains helpful information, examples and templates for a wide range of HR topics including; Developing your HR strategy, where to start when employing people, finding the right person, getting people started on farm, keeping your team working, retaining and motivating staff, and managing conflict and ending employment.
