Section 7. Managing People
What Family Members and Employees Need to Know
|Making your operation secure includes training your family members and employees on their roles. They should be aware of the security and safety measures you have implemented so they know what to do. Chapters in this section discuss specific family and employee situations, including how to handle the disgruntled employee, hiring new employees and I-9 information.
People are among your most valuable resources. Every farm depends on all the people involved in its operation. Whether you own the farm, are a member of the family, or work for the owner, you play an important role in the success of the operation. Suppliers and the rest of the community have important support roles.
In an emergency, people's actions will determine the survival or loss of your farm business. You must provide them with information, training and the ability to communicate effectively to ensure their safety and the safety of your business and community.
