The Evolving Workplace

January 29, 2021
11:00 am – 12:00 pm

It’s not your grandparent’s workplace anymore—in fact, it’s likely today doesn’t even resemble your 2019 workplace either! Workplaces were changing, but nothing pushed their evolution as fast as the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this free webinar for employers, AgCareers.com will discuss the pandemic’s impact on agri-food employment, including temporary and long-term changes for employee recruiting, hiring, and management. Discover how the agricultural workplace is evolving, and how your business needs to adapt to stay relevant.
