You can provide a workplace your employees never want to leave. By making small changes over time bosses can grow to be very good bosses. Research tells us good bosses:

  • regularly catch up each of their team
  • ensure health, safety and wellbeing are a priority on farm
  • provide warm and comfortable accommodation
  • appreciate the work their team do and tell them often
  • offer good systems and procedures with clear instructions
  • pay their team competitively
  • encourage development and provide quality training
  • hold regular team meetings
  • ensure their team have time for interests outside of work.

Rate yourself as a boss

* The Good Boss Quiz is not a comprehensive assessment of your abilities but rather a fun way to think about what it means to be a good boss.
