The Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) has teamed up with key industry organisations (BD, BE, BS, BHS, BEF, ABRS, Horsescotland and Haddon Training) to raise awareness of the importance of good employment in the 2022 renewal of Good Employment Week.
Good Employment should be the norm.
Tullis Matson, President of the EEA says, “It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that employment practices within the equestrian industry meet legal requirements, plus adhere to best practice. Together we need to make working with horses an attractive career choice and in turn achieve a sustainable workforce.”
Good Employment Week 2022 will provide educational content for employers and workers within the equestrian industry around what ‘good’ looks like, whilst addressing current challenges and providing practical solutions.
The week will focus on the links between positive employment practices, increased productivity and business viability.
Key themes include contracts of employment, employment status, recruiting and retaining staff, business viability and sustainability.
Ending with the annual ‘Give Your Staff a Pizza Day’ on Friday 18th November. All employers are encouraged to take part in this simple occasion, where equestrian staff are celebrated for their amazing dedication and hard work.
