Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of the existing systems and processes; the audit is limited to hiring and termination practices, work scheduling, payroll processing, benefits administration, insurance, and compliance with federal and state employment laws
  • Recommendation for process improvements and software providers (if necessary)
  • Implementation of chosen software (if necessary)
  • Training on maintenance tasks
Additional Details

We are looking at hiring two employees full-time with benefits packages and developing HR

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a budget (from funding made available for 2 remote-hires) and a payroll contractor and Finance manager on contract. We are happy to work together and provide further information and support throughout the process.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,746 , allowing us to reimburse the costs for up to two farms to be certified at regenerative organic. We are still piloting out our certification costs, but we intend to develop a cost-share program for ROC.

We are an organization that calls for farmer and worker fairness, along with other tenets of regenerative organic agriculture. Currently, we have employees working on contract. We are hoping to develop compelling benefits and job offer packages so that we can develop a company culture that is aligned with our values, movement away from contract workers and towards full-time, benefitted employees.
