People & Time Management Courses

Martina Gormley, Teagasc Dairy Specialist, is on this week’s Dairy Edge podcast to discuss the recent people management courses held in a number of locations across the country in the last few weeks.

Martina begins by explaining the agenda and course content over the two days. She explains that one of the key items that people attend for is the legislation around employment. |This is covered very well by Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) personnel.

Martina goes on to explain that it is a common misconception that the course is only for people who are employing people on their farms full-time. The course has something to offer to all farmers.

From time management for yourself as well as any people that might be working on the farm at any stage throughout the year, to attracting and retaining the people that are involved in your dairy business in whatever way they might be, there are numerous learnings that any farmer can take from the courses.

Martina advises that if people haven’t attended before and are interested in attending in the future, they can express their interest by contacting her by email to martina.gormley@teagasc.ie as this will facilitate Martina in planning courses for 2023.

In the meantime, people can view some of the very good resources on labour on the Labour section of the Teagasc website.
