Dairy industry to launch workplace accord

Dairy industry to launch workplace accord

Monday March 23, 2015

A new dairy industry workplace accord will be launched in May as part of a range of industry actions aimed at helping farmers attract and retain skilled people to work on farms.

"The Quality Workplace Accord is a commitment to improving the work environment of dairy farms," says DairyNZ's strategy and investment leader for people and business, Mark Paine.

"The overarching goal is to achieve quality work environments through helping farmers implement good people management practices.

"We need a positive reputation for employment practice and we need it now. We have to show our commitment to delivering that for the people who work in our industry and who are considering coming into it. This Accord is going to be a strong, visible and public commitment. The Accord will have deadlines and set out timeframes for meeting key targets around safety, legal obligations and remuneration policies."
