Where am I now?

How did you go?

Where do I want to be?

So, how good is your farm business at recruitment?
No
Partially/ Sometimes
Yes
Overall, would you say you consistently have the right people doing the right jobs on the farm?
Are there written position descriptions and person specifications for all people working on the farm?
Are systematic selection procedures used to help choose between potential employees (e.g. prepared interviews, referees contacted)?
Are positions to be filled advertised widely, using more than one method (i.e. not just word-of-mouth)?
Are you attracting the most suitable people to apply for positions on your farm?
Are there formal written employment agreements being used to employ people on your farm? Are these legally binding?
Are new employees provided with a formal induction when they start work?

If you answered ‘no’ or ‘partially/sometimes’ in any area, it is possible that your approach to recruitment is negatively affecting the retention of people on the farm or you are missing opportunities for the farm’s production and profit. This module will provide you with some tools to begin to turn this around.

If you answered ‘yes’ to many areas above, it is likely that your approach to recruitment is having a positive effect on the retention of people on the farm, is attracting people to work on your farm and is contributing to the farm’s production and profit. This module will provide you with extra impetus to keep working on this area.

Where do I want to be?
