Western Growers kicked off its “Let’s Grow Roadshow” this week, where WG staff travel around California and Arizona to provide mini-workshops on topics including human resources, insurance services, food safety, financial services and more. During the workshops, farming, food and agricultural professional have the opportunity to explore some of the industry’s most pressing issues and receive tangible takeaways that they can immediately implement at their respective companies.
The first set of workshops will take place in November and December and covers the latest happenings regarding wage and hour.
WAGE & HOUR WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:
Managers and supervisors are tasked with important duties every day, including the responsibility of managing the time and attendance of their direct reports. Wage and hour responsibilities are one of those daily activities that tend to get overlooked, and yet can have serious consequences if the laws that govern this area of employment are not administered correctly. During this course, get an overview of state (California and Arizona) and federal wage and hour laws and discuss the role that managers play in ensuring employees consistently adhere to the law, including how they can help their organizations reduce the likelihood of costly wage and hour claims.
Trainings will be delivered by Anna Bilderbach, bilingual HR Learning and Development Manager for Western Growers. She has been training and coaching employees across the U.S. and overseas for 15-years on HR, leadership and supervision.
