Farm and Ranch Employee Intake and Onboarding

With: Shannon Sand, Extension Agricultural Economist, UNL Center for Agricultural Profitability

Farm and ranch employee intake and onboarding is important as it sets the tone of the relationship between the manager(s) and the worker(s). Whether they’re related or not, onboarding new employees is important as it allows them the opportunity to get an overview of the operation, learn about employment policies, introduce them to other employees, suppliers, etc., and job duties. Doing these things are key to helping create an understanding of duties and responsibilities in regard to the job, as well as foster open communication with employees and help with potential employee retention.
