DairyNZ Regional leader Wade Bell says the farm team is critical in the current climate.
“Now is the time you need your people engaged. There are many challenges farmers are working with at the moment and having a high-performing team in a productive work environment reduces stress, frees up time and is good for everyone,” says Wade.
“We’ve got a local farmer sharing his story, a couple of New Zealand’s leading HR experts tackling two key topics and a panel discussion to end the event.”
Wade is confident farmers will go away with tips, tools and ideas to organise and upskill their team.
“This four-hour session is a great investment for farmers, potentially saving them a lot of time and stress, making life easier and the farm workplace more rewarding for everyone,” says Wade. “Last year we closed registrations early as we’d filled the venue to capacity, so people intending to come, should register early to avoid missing out.”
Farmers attending the event will choose from two of the three workshops available:
- local farmer Chris Lewis: creating a quality workplace through smart rosters
- Joan Baker (author and business consultant): get more time in your day through effective delegation
- people management consultant Lee Astridge: on-the-job training to get the job done right.
The event will close with a panel discussion on ‘are townie hours feasible on the farm in future?’.
DairyNZ’s People Expo will be held in Hamilton on Thursday, 28 April from 9.30am-2pm. Lunch is provided. Registration is essential.
