ST. CLOUD, Minn. — “Leadership for Successful Employee Management,” a labor management workshop, will be taught at the Melrose City Center in Melrose, MN in February and March 2017. Betty Berning, Extension Educator, and Bob Milligan, Professor Emeritus, will teach the four-session course.
The workshop will feature a wide variety employee management topics. Leadership, supervising, recruitment and culture, are just a few of the subjects that will be covered. Through hands-on activities, tool development and class discussions, participants will learn how to become a preferred employer.
Betty Berning, Extension Educator, explains, “When I ask dairy farmers about the struggles they face, labor management is one of the top two concerns they mention. It is hard to find and keep good employees. There is no perfect solution to this problem, unfortunately. Our goal in the class is to equip students with the right skills and tools to set themselves up for success.”
Classes will meet on February 2, February 17, March 2, and March 16, 2017. Each class meets from 10AM-2:30PM. Three webinars will be held in between classes to discuss implementation of course tools and foster further learning.
Minnesota Dairy Initiatives is a collaborator on this project.
Registration is still open. Cost is $200/farm. To register or for more information on the workshop, please call or e-mail Betty Berning, 320-203-6104 or email@example.com.
