New Resource for Managers of Hispanic Employees
Posted: March 4, 2004
A new publication is available for agricultural and horticultural managers who are considering employing people from Hispanic cultures. Managing Hispanic Workers: Perceptions of Agricultural Managers is a collection of ideas and best practices from nearly 200 practicing agricultural and horticultural managers, educators, and other professionals.
The publication provides answers to the following questions:
- What obstacles must Hispanic workers overcome to be successful employees in your operation?
- What daily management practices work best to encourage outstanding performance?
- In what unexpected ways did your managerial role change when you hired Hispanic employees?
The answers to these questions will help agricultural managers to deal with the challenges presented by a multi-cultural workplace. Those who are considering Hispanic employees as a labor resource will be able to make a more informed choice for themselves and their business when they learn about the pitfalls that others have survived and the best practices that they developed.
A hardcopy of the publication can be purchased from the Dairy Alliance office by calling 1-888-373-PADA or emailing Michele Moyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).Richard E. Stup
