What is my job? Hiring, training and evaluating farm employees effectively

November 29, 2017

What is my job?  Hiring, training and evaluating farm employees effectively

How well do your employees understand their jobs?

Everyone wants farm employees who know what to do without being told. Unfortunately most people you hire or manage can’t read minds. This workshop will help you develop effective tools for training and evaluating new employees or employees moving into new positions. You will learn to develop clear job descriptions, learn techniques in hiring, and training new staff and how to use “just in time” feedback and performance appraisal to both correct problems and motivate your staff.

Your employees are your most valuable resource. Wages, salaries, and contract labor expenses represent more than 40 percent of the cost of production in labor intensive crops like fruits, vegetables, and nursery products. Can you afford to not improve your skills in managing employees effectively?

This is the second of four workshops on Human Resource Management on the Farm.  Sign up for the full series of 4 workshops in Essex at a discounted price of $60 or $15 per class.
