CREW :: A Live Virtual Seminar
Date: December 6, 2021
Time: 5:30PM-8:30PM Eastern Standard Time
PERFECT TIMING FOR GETTING YOUR JOB POSTINGS POLISHED OFF TO HIRE CREW IN 2022!
Feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work piling up at your small farm or market garden? Also feeling overwhelmed by the idea of hiring help? Tried hiring help but found it to be an emotional rollercoaster you'd rather not ride? This live virtual seminar will help fit some critical pieces of the puzzle together and give you an action plan for moving forward with greater confidence finding and leading a hardworking crew.
Held over Zoom on a Monday evening, participants will first watch a live 90 minute presentation by Jennie Love on how hiring and crew management practices at Love 'n Fresh Flowers. Once the formal presentation is complete, participants will be able to ask questions and also give feedback on their own triumphs and trials of crew management so everyone participating can learn from our shared experiences. Think "therapy with an action plan"!
Jennie has managed employees at her farm for 13 years and has learned a lot of hard lessons along the way. Topics covered in this seminar will be:
- How to advertise for help
- How to interview
- How to offer the job
- How to train
- How to manage crew workflow
- How to incentivize and keep a good crew
Participants will be emailed several documents after the workshop that will prove useful in their journey to build a solid crew. Documents will include templates for a job description, a new hire letter, a performance review, and a digital crew whiteboard.
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON NOVEMBER 6th.
This seminar is capped at 20 participants.
The goal is to keep it small enough that everyone can interact with each other and get questions answered in real time. Rather than sitting on mute like in other conferences and online classes, you'll actually get to talk during this intimate seminar and see everyone else participating.
Due to the limited size of the seminar, no refunds are offered for participants who can not make it after registering. However, a replay will be available after the seminar so any participant unable to make it for the live event will still be able to access the recorded event and resources.
Those signed up for the seminar will receive the Zoom link to join the class the morning of on December 6th. Please be sure to check your inbox (and spam folder) to make sure you don't miss it.
When registering, please enter the email address to which you would like to have the Zoom link emailed.
