Ag Supervisor Development Program

Field supervisors, mayordomos, and crew leaders are the front line of your management team. These leaders can ensure quality production, compliance with company policies, and keep your operation running smoothly and efficiently. However, inadequately trained supervisors can provoke significant legal and financial risks, poor quality work, higher injury rates, increased worker turnover, and costly regulatory penalties and lawsuits.

Protect your business by investing in professional development for your key staff! Ensure they understand critical regulations, and have the personnel management skills to enforce policies, foster a safe work environment, and promote worker satisfaction and retention.

Through this highly interactive training supervisors will practice skills and gain knowledge on topics most important to their success and that of your business.
The 12-hour certificate program is held over two days, with an additional mandatory 1-hour employer orientation, and follow-up performance survey to support your supervisors in their professional development. Click above to register.
