It is always difficult to find good people with the right kind of skills for your farm. The farm labour shortage has been identified as one of the greatest business risks in agriculture today. Putting effort into finding and keeping good people with effective human resource management can also save your farm money. This is especially important during a labour shortage.
The AgriHR Toolkit, developed by Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) through extensive consultations with producers across Canada, offers assistance every step of the way with guides, templates, resources, and the critical questions that you need to ask and answer about your business.
It offers tools such as an Employee Handbook template you can download and customize for your farm and employees that includes key policies that are becoming components of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) such as the Abuse Free Workplace policy.
The AgriHR Toolkit includes targeted, practical advice based on years of research and field testing with ready-to-use tools and templates including a policy manual, orientation check list, job descriptions, and job offer letters to help save you time and money.
It's everything you'll need to find, retain and support your employees.
