Experienced rural recruitment specialist and No8 HR director, Lee Astridge, will also share her recruitment knowledge, and how farmers are developing and supporting their workers.
Lee’s recent DairyNZ podcast on ‘Recruiting great dairy workers’ includes some fresh ideas on how to advertise and recruit dairy workers. The podcast is available online at dairynz.co.nz/podcast
DairyNZ will also share the work it has underway to respond to the current dairy sector workforce shortage, including the Go Dairy campaign, continuing to strongly advocate for more international workers to be able to enter New Zealand, and developing a dairy workforce resilience plan.
The dairy sector currently employs around 37,000 on-farm workers and is estimated to have a workforce shortage of up to 4,000 staff.
