How Do I Create A Place Where People Want To Work?

Research shows that creating a safe, healthy, and supportive workplace isn’t just good for your workers, it’s also good for your business. A healthy workplace offers a range of business benefits; for example, it helps you to attract workers more easily, keep them longer, and increase their productivity. The health of your workers is tied to the health of your business, and HR practices that improve the well-being of your workers will improve your business performance as well.

Farmers experiencing high stress are 1.7 times more likely to have a serious injury than farmers with low to moderate stress.

The first step in building a healthier workplace, where people want to work, is to develop a wellness program. A wellness program doesn’t need to be costly or complicated. It can be as simple as posting health and safety information or encouraging workers to take part in decisions that affect their jobs. Even small farming operations will benefit from a range of affordable activities that promote a healthy workplace.
