Why managing people well is so important
Good people management is one of the key elements of business success. Only a third of sheep and beef farmers employ full-time staff but nearly all have part-time staff and deal with contractors. Knowing how to be a good employer and to create a good team environment is essential. As farming gets more competitive, good people are gold so look after them.
How the toolkit can help you
The toolkit is light on theory and heavy on practice – it’s packed with templates and resources you can use immediately in your business. It includes best practice tips for all kinds of staff management processes, from job analysis through to performance management. There are also tips for farmers who don’t employ staff, such as how to manage your time better.
