Nebraska Extension will host a virtual seminar series in January (Jan. 18, 20, 25 and 27) 2022 designed to help agricultural employers learn techniques and leadership practices to help motivate and empower employees.
Finding, hiring and retaining quality employees are major challenges for agricultural business in Nebraska. Help-wanted signs are everywhere. Nebraska currently has the lowest unemployment rate on record. Retaining employees is so difficult that many are calling this the “Great Resignation.”
Agriculture is not exempt from this challenge; competition for available workers comes from area industries, and the labor market is tight.
