Tools

The Labor Readiness Assessment Tool will help you identify your strengths as a farm employer and suggest resources that will help you address your weak links.

The Employee Cost Estimator will help you calculate the total cost of wages, payroll and unemployment taxes, workers comp, and any additional employee benefits you might offer. You can also use it to compare different scenarios.

The Job Description Generator will help you produce professional job descriptions that can help farm managers more effectively recruit and manage employees.

The Personnel Policy Generator will guide you through the process of a manual for your farm, providing example language that you can adopt or easily modify to reflect your farm situation. A personnel policy manual is a key tool for establishing consistency, communicating expectations, and it can protect you from appearing arbitrary in your treatment of employees.
