Agribusiness HR Review – Report Released

Nearly 70% of U.S. ag companies and over 50% of Canadian ag companies expect their workforce to increase in size within the next two years, according to the recently released Agribusiness HR Review. The expectancy of business growth indicates an advantageous environment for employees working within agribusiness across North America. As employers search for ways to meet increased business demands, recruitment and retention efforts will take center stage.

The survey, conducted by, highlighted various strategies utilized in both large and small ag businesses alike to win talent. Altogether participants estimated as many as five thousand job openings would need to be filled in the next twelve months. Most of these companies continue to find employee referrals and networks the most effective means of attracting prospective applicants to their organization (80.91%). Referrals were followed by the use of industry specific job boards (i.e. ) 69.09% and college and university recruitment, 58.18%. The use of social networks or social media to support recruitment efforts nearly doubled from just last year, in the U.S. More than 50% of agribusinesses in North America are now using social media and social networks for recruitment. The number could easily be as high as 75% in the coming year, based on the projection of those planning to begin using these outlets.
