Van Drunen Farms was faced with the challenge of having an innovative and growing company with an inspiring mission and values and wanting to ensure employees knew this from Day 1. To do so, Van Drunen Farms developed a new employee orientation and onboarding training that really got their new professional employees excited about work. Eighteen months ago, they implemented a half-day new employee orientation and a 20-hour onboarding training program exposing them to all senior leaders and all production facilities.

Learn how Van Drunen Farms has transformed their employee orientation and onboarding experience to drive results, including tactics to help you:

  • Get buy-in from senior leaders to invest in the next generation
  • Implement new tactics and strategies for your own onboarding experience
