Every Estate knows that change is required to continue and develop the rural business and ensure a long-term legacy of care for the land and the communities who live there.
Brexit thrown into the mix, with the UK’s new Agriculture Bill means Landed Estates have until 2028 to make their businesses more resilient as direct subsidies are gradually withdrawn.

In order to manage any potential changes within the business, now is the time to ensure you have all your HR ducks in a row. Have you got the basics covered?

- Do you have the knowledge and confidence to deal with potential redundancies with long-term employees/estate workers?
