Effective hiring and onboarding can lead to increased productivity, longer tenure on the farm, and increased engagement. Research also shows that mentoring programs help with employee retention.
This session will provide mentoring strategies for supervisors. Using various models representing the stages of the mentoring relationship, we provide tips and best practices to navigate each stage. In the end, the participant will be more prepared to be a mentor in their organization and to provide constructive feedback to new employees.
