Webinar designed for farm managersMay 15, 2020
JASPER — In addition to the daily responsibilities of keeping an agricultural operation running, farm managers and owners also have to become human resource specialists in their quest to find and retain the best employees.
To help develop those skills, Purdue Extension will offer the Becoming the Employer of Choice program via webinar. The program will run from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Fridays, June 9, 16, 23 and 30. Attendees will gain effective and practical approaches to managing human resource challenges on the farm.
The University of Wisconsin Extension developed the program. It is designed to improve human resource skills through hands-on activities and interactive sessions.
The program consists of seven modules addressing how different leadership styles are used on the farm; reducing mis-hires and turnover through hiring best practices; learning about organizational culture and how it impacts employee motivation and engagement; identifying keys to create a motivating environment; learning how to effectively communicate expectations to employees; developing skills to provide effective feedback; and learning ways to address and work through conflict.
Registration deadline is June 2. Individuals can register for the webinar series by going to http://www.cvent.com/d/cnqg7l. The cost is $40.
For further information, call 574-372-2340. Complete program information can be found at https://extension.purdue.edu/warrick/article/37211.
