How growers are stepping up to the plate to recruit best talent
Added on 04 October 2022
For many growers, the key to success is their workforce. Greenhouses need qualified talent from the top down. The leadership from the CEO is just as important as a general laborer pulling plants to prepare for shipping. A sizeable workforce that is well-trained, hardworking, and knowledgeable about the product is a necessity. That said, growers across the country are feeling the pinch in their workforce. In 2018, the number of job openings surpassed the unemployment level, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many baby boomers are leaving the workforce, which leads to a gap in the job availability and number of people willing to take the jobs.
