Alltech rolls out new dairy workforce management tools

The new personality test and workplace culture survey will help managers hire and retain quality employees.

Alltech has two new employee management tools that can be used by dairy producers.

LaborProfile is a personality test that can help determine a person’s reliability and tendency to adhere to rules. The test analyzes four key areas: integrity, conscientiousness, attitude and perseverance. This information helps farm managers better understand their employees and delegate their responsibilities based on each person’s tendencies and strengths.

The results are instantly available, and all testing materials are provided by Alltech. An individual overall integrity rating for each employee is included with the results.

Dairy Cult2R is a survey helps that dairy owners and managers better understand the employee workplace culture on their farm. The survey addresses four key areas: internal structures, systems, technologies, and skills and qualities.

The results of the survey can help generate discussions between farm managers and employees, and it can help owners make decisions about employee management and responsibilities based on objective information.

“Attracting and retaining quality labor is a challenge for many dairy producers,” says Jorge Delgado, dairy on-farm training, talent development and retention specialist at Alltech. “The Alltech On-Farm Support team wants to help dairies to better train and equip their employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to complete their daily tasks. By better understanding employees and the workplace culture, dairy farm owners and managers can better manage and address areas of concern before they become bigger challenges.”
