From Hort Innovation: Hort Innovation recently began collaborating with Ernst & Young to conduct research to understand the seasonal workforce in the horticulture sector, and the long-term impacts of COVID-19.

A quick survey has been designed to gather information from growers about seasonal labour requirements. In particular, the challenges you’re facing to access seasonal workforce as a result of COVID-19, and the impact of border closures and restricted mobility.

Please submit your response by 10 August 2020.

The survey can be accessed here:

Please note that the data collected through this work is strictly confidential but will play an important role in understanding and addressing our industry’s labour requirements.
