A short review of compensation trends, with a focus on how winery pay compares across industries and how to use compensation/benefits as a recruiting tool.

8:20 – 9:00 a.m. INNOVATIVE RECRUITING PRACTICES

Finding the right hire often means looking outside of the wine industry. How can wineries sell their brand as an attractive company, especially when compensation may not be as high as in other industries? Plus, as social media becomes more prevalent in our day-to-day personal and professional lives, brands are increasingly using platforms for more than marketing. How can you leverage sites like Instagram and LinkedIn to attract talent from within the wine industry and out?
