Using the successful model of a community of practice, where people with similar interests participate in a process of collective learning, the University of Wisconsin-Cooperative Extension used the Becoming the Employer of Choice, a human resource management curriculum for farm owners and managers, to bring together Extension and industry professionals around the topic of farm human resource management.
Participants of the UW-Extension Becoming the Employer of Choice Train-the-Trainer program were invited to join the community of practice for support with their work and offering the curriculum to clientele. The community practice also offers professionals an opportunity to learn more about the topic and build their expertise through discussion of human resource management and common farm/clientele questions and issues, via bi-monthly webinar programs.
Participants in this session will learn more about the Becoming the Employer of Choice curriculum, the community of practice, and how they can get involved and use this program with farmers and the model with farm consultant clientele.
