Food productions is specific area, were you have to think about numerous areas like food safety, defence, food frauds, operation steps, loses in production, improvements, time management etc. All of this is not possible without the responsible employees who are willing to give effort in mentioned activities. This topic will focus on standard demands regarding human resources, how to implement effective employment, competence tracking and improvement of employees and how to develop one of the hardest thing and that is awareness of employees.

Hello. My question is about competence  of employees who can not communicate effectively in English, what are the good practices in hiring of production line employees?

We have added additional staff to assist in "streamlining" our mass temporary hire.  This upcoming season we hope to have stations where employees complete the necessary HR hiring documents, then go to a different station where they will be "re-trained" or receive "initial" training on food safety/equipment/GAP/OSHA requirements. Most of our employees are Hispanic with 2 different dialects, this is a challenge, but we are fortunate to have interpreters. 


We are currently working on job descriptions and job analysis for each position.


Are there any suggestions that could improve our plan for next season?
