Case Studies

Knowledge is key to securing a reliable and efficient workforce during pruning season.

Challenge

Our client operates a quality vineyard in Western Australia’s renowned wine region and requires a large, eager and hardworking workforce for a short period of time every pruning season. The quality and timing of the pruning is paramount as it dictates both the quality and yield that can be expected, which directly results in the return of the vineyard operations.

We were able to identify two core-staffing challenges:

  • Shortages in knowledgeable and reliable staff
  • Lack of experienced supervisors
  • Along with finding staff, our client faced challenges with:
  • Training staff
  • Housing staff
  • Transporting staff
  • Administration and HR obligations including payroll

Solution

Through in-depth analysis we were able to successfully tackle our client’s challenges through:

  • Recruitment of a successful team from start to finish
  • Delivery of training and supervision at a high standard, including OH&S training and the supply of clothing and safety equipment
  • Provision of one point of contact for the Vineyard manager
  • Removal of transport and accommodation responsibilities from the vineyard management team
  • Development of a per vine fixed price model that encompasses our full service offering

Result

Implementation of the above strategies provided our client with:

  • Access to a high quantity of trained staff on demand
  • Removal of operational, administrative and HR distractions and overhead costs
  • Efficient labour mobilisation
