Member Input Needed to Help Prepare Future Ag Workforce

In an effort to develop programs that prepare tomorrow’s highly-skilled workforce for jobs in the industry, Western Growers has collaborated with Hartnell College to gauge the needs of Ag employers through an Agricultural Sector Labor Market Survey.

The results of the survey will be used to help tailor Hartnell’s Science Technology Engineering and Math (“STEM”)-based programming to best support agriculture. Through this Labor Market Survey, Hartnell College will create partnerships and programs that will meet employment needs and build a highly-technical and knowledgeable future workforce.

By providing your valuable feedback, initiatives can be developed to help students perfect those advanced skills that are most beneficial to your needs. Your input is important and critical to Hartnell College’s ability to provide you with well-trained employees for the future.
