Labor is one of the major challenges facing agricultural producers in western Nebraska. Job availability from area industries along with a tight labor market provides significant competition for quality employees.

A seminar designed to help agricultural employers learn techniques and leadership practices to help motivate and empower employees will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center. Dr. Bob Milligan, Senior Consultant, Dairy Strategies, LLC and Professor Emeritus from Cornell University will lead the seminar.

Topics that will be included in the seminar will include:
• Identifying the future direction of the operation and its workforce needs
• Developing position descriptions, performance expectations, and accountability
• Learning effective recruitment, interviewing, and hiring procedures
• Identifying employee training and development needs

Cost is $50 per person and includes materials as well as breaks and the noon meal. Registration for the webinar is requested by January 23 to insure pre-meeting preparation material is available to participants.
