Looking for better ways to introduce the importance of food safety to new employees? Or are you concerned about high turnover and the impact it’s having on your company’s food safety culture and programs?

Join us for this informative and interactive online conference, where four food safety culture experts will share best practices and:

  • How to improve your onboarding approach when it comes to food safety.
  • Lessons learned from companies of what to do – and what not to do.
  • Specific techniques to support food safety culture continuity and retention.
  • How to customize your approach based on the needs of specific roles and departments.

With food companies experiencing unprecedented turnover as high as 40 percent, instilling a strong food safety culture into an organization’s workforce is not an easy endeavor. The good news is you’re not alone!

Industry experts will discuss the issues and give you the tools, tips and inspiration to face your business’s challenges.

Who Should Attend:

Food safety and quality managers, supervisors, training personnel, human resources, operations and department managers – who are looking to implement an effective food safety culture across their operation.
