Webinar: Benchmarking towards better business

Thursday, 16 May 2019

A new tool for Australian growers to benchmark their business performance against other production nurseries, will be unveiled at an interactive webinar on Tuesday, 28 May 2019.

The tool aims to improve productivity by assessing core aspects of production businesses, such as turnover, wages and input costs, against those operating in similar segments across the industry.

It forms part of the Nursery Industry Statistics 2017-18 survey, which gathered data and insights from 292 greenlife producers and validated by an inaugural greenlife purchasers survey.

Free for levy payers, the tool enables growers to compare how their business is performing against the current national average, determine the market it primarily operates in through types of plants sold, and compares views on the future of our industry against peers.

To register and access the tool, please email communications@horticulture.com.au with the subject line ‘Registering for nursery data tool’.

Why attend the webinar?

Jan Paul van Moort from ACIL Allen Consulting, who worked with Nursery & Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) and Down To Earth Research, to deliver the levy-funded Nursery Industry Statistics Project (NY17008), will facilitate the webinar.

During the webinar, growers will receive an overview of the latest Nursery Industry Statistics 2017-18 report, its key findings and what these mean for the Australian nursery industry.

The webinar will also provide a live demonstration on the Benchmarking tool – from how to use and navigate it, to how to populate and interpret your own business’s data.

At the conclusion, there will also be an opportunity for viewers to ask questions.


Date: Tuesday, 28 May 2019

Times: Opens 12:00pm for a 12:10pm start. Will conclude at 12:40pm
