COVID-19 has made it evident that much of what once just ticked along, like having an available local and backpacker workforce, can no longer be taken for granted. To survive and prosper we need to expect the unexpected and be flexible. That is why it is so important that you start to think more broadly and forward plan now for next year’s harvest workforce.
There are several different options for finding seasonal workers and navigating the system can be confusing, so we have tried to make it simpler for you.
To help you explore the options and find the best solution for you, click on the Seasonal Workforce Planning Matrix.
Once you have considered your needs and identified your options, have a read through the Planning Your Seasonal Workforce document (below) to find out more. We have expanded on each option and tried to break the information down to simplify it.
Consider your needs and the best solution for you.
Whatever you do, do not leave planning for labour until the last minute.
It is important to plan ahead.
