Webinar on retraining and upskilling workers on produce safety best practices
Free lunchtime webinar on April 12 will offer practical information and tips to help employers train their employees.
Did you know that well trained employees have a higher job satisfaction and feel more valued by their employer?
Employees satisfied with job training are more committed to their employers and more willing to accept organization goals and values. This is a key component in creating a food safety culture on your farm. Well-trained, committed employees are less likely to look for another job, reducing employee turnover on the farm and the turnover costs associated with having to find new employees.
Often, growers leave training courses with a significant amount of information that will need to be passed along to their employees. They return to the farm with food safety tools, educational handouts, new knowledge and binders full of information, but often with little guidance on how to use these resources to train their employees. If this sounds familiar to you, this webinar will help!
Join the Rutgers On-Farm Food Safety Group for their next webinar from the series “From the Ground Up,” a Rutgers On-Farm Food Safety Webinar Series for the Busy Grower. This webinar, titled Retraining and Upskilling Workers on Produce Safety Best Practices, will take place Wednesday, April 12, 2023, from 12 to 1 p.m. and features Phil Tocco, an educator with Michigan State University Extension. Tocco will provide practical information and tips to help employers train their employees. At the end of the webinar, participants will:
- Understand how to verify training is working.
- Discern what training is required for different employees.
- Develop a process for training workers on your farm.
