Human Resources

Managing productivity, relationships, roles and responsibilities

No matter what size or type of farm you operate, good human resource management can increase productivity, reduce costs, maintain health, increase job satisfaction and minimize staff turnover. On family farms it can help keep roles and expectations clear and minimize friction in personal relationships. Being an employer also entails certain regulations and liabilities that you need to deal with before any problems arise.
