Project Overview

The AgSafe Human Resource Skill Develop Workshop: How to Manage to Reduce Human and Legal Risk is a 2 day, 12 hour workshop designed to train employees in the agricultural industry with supervisory and management roles in human resource fundamentals and best practices.  The Human Resource Workshop addressed several aspects of legal risk in agricultural employment and human risk, specifically:
*Employee management and communication
*Health, stress and well-being
*Labor supply, recruitment and retention

The Workshop was conducted in five regions across California: Fresno, Modesto, Santa Maria, Salinas and Napa. Each class had an average of 18 participants with a total impact of 93 individuals trained on human resource best practices in recruitment, hiring, retention, discipline and employee separation issues. Significant attention given to laws and regulations as well as the required management and communication needs unique to each portion of the process. AgSafe worked in conjunction with regional partners to target limited resource producers, specialty crop producers and traditional commercial producers for participation in this workshop. This segment of the agricultural industry has an increased risk of legal ramifications from inadvertent mismanagement and has been our primary attendee for related courses taught by AgSafe.
