What is the benefit to farmers for participating in FARM WFD?

Nov 04, 2020

Investing in the farm’s workforce improves overall performance, productivity and engagement. Effective HR and safety programs help the farm meet legal obligations with regard to employment-related laws, as well as maintain a positive, safe and fair work environment. High-quality HR and safety management helps farms go above and beyond the legal minimum, to become an employer of choice and attract and retain employees. Moreover, implementing HR and safety best practices may help a farm reduce operating costs, such as workers’ comp premium rates and the costs associated with high employee turnover.

The FARM WFD evaluation tool was designed so that each question relates back to resources and / or templates to assist producers in striving towards continuous improvement.
