Hannaford is a valued supporter of the FARM Workforce Development (WFD) Program, which comprehensively assists farmers in their ongoing efforts to proactively build excellent and safe work environments. FARM WFD provides free templates; comprehensive, dual-language HR and safety manuals; and state and federal legal fact sheets for farms to use. The FARM WFD on-farm assessment encourages the adoption of best practices, with a focus on developing sustainable management processes and procedures to promote positive human resources (HR) and safety outcomes on dairies.
U.S. dairy farms have long offered attractive workplaces. As they look to remain competitive in ever-tightening labor markets, FARM WFD offers dairy-focused resources and information to further their HR and safety management efforts as well as document their progress.
