Check out this message to Agriculture leaders:
Cheryl Cran grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan a full working farm – they farmed wheat, barley and rye. As the daughter of a farmer Cheryl was part of the working team and as a child hauled bails of hay for the horses, carted five gallon pails of chicken feed from the barn to the chicken coop and in her downtime delivered meals to her father and uncle out in the field on her dirt bike. Cheryl understands the mindset and the reality of the agriculture industry- she lived it.
The agriculture industry is a fantastic industry with great people- people who know what hard work is and in addition to getting their hands dirty they are also savvy business people with high technical knowledge.

Leadership That Attracts The Right People and Keeps The Right People Best Practices of Top Leaders in the Agriculture Industry
The agriculture industry is ahead of other industries when it comes to needing people to the work. As more long time leaders and workers plan to retire or reduce their workload there is a big gap of getting new people on board and keeping them engaged.

Times have changed, where once the agriculture industry had the benefit of the baby boomer children of traditionalists to step in and take over the family farm or remain in the agriculture industry we have seen a shift of attitudes with Generations X (those in their 30′s to late 40′s ) and Generation Y (those in their 20′s).
Cheryl has done years of research into generational trends and mindsets and has worked as a consultant with organizations- helping them to build their recruitment and retaining strategies that fit along with the realities of the different needs and desires of Generations X and Y.
6 Ways to Recruit Talent in the Agriculture Industry
