CRDC joins forces to launch People in Agriculture (12 December 2016)

CRDC is among one of six agricultural bodies that has led the development of a new resource for employers and employees in agriculture, aptly named People in Agriculture.

The People in Agriculture website was launched today by the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, the Hon. Barnaby Joyce MP, and CRDC chair Richard Haire, along with representatives of the other bodies: GRDC, APL, Dairy Aust, MLA and Food and Agribuiness Solutions.

The website offers compliance support for employers, promoting agriculture as a career choice and providing a platform for employment information sharing. It provides both an overarching ag perspective, as well as sector-specific content, providing resources for both employers and guides for employees via one centralised hub. 

It breaks down questions commonly asked by Australia’s farmers and food producers around employment law and staff management, and provides access to information on employment opportunities, entitlements and career management in agriculture.  In cotton, it is designed to complement the resources available in the HR and WHS modules of myBMP, with links to the new site from myBMP.

The Australian cotton industry recognises that people are our most important resource, which is why CRDC invests heavily in capacity building.
