Recognizing the importance of a career connection strategy, AgLaunch, a non-profit focused on accelerating innovation in agriculture through early farmer engagement, together with AgCareers.com, a company with over 20 years’ experience in the agriculture talent solutions space, developed the inaugural partnership for startup companies within the AgLaunch portfolio.
AgCareers.com and AgLaunch will work to ensure these emerging tech companies have access to AgCareers.com’s talent solutions products, HR solutions and exclusive talent community as they scale their businesses.
“The agricultural industry is constantly evolving and needs top talent to support innovation,” said Margaret Oldham, AgLaunch Director of Entrepreneurship.
“Founders and startup CEOs often don’t have the experience or band-width to find qualified talent on their own. This opportunity to partner with AgCareers.com will be a fantastic way to ensure they expand their teams with top talent that are motivated to work in agriculture."
In this collaboration, AgCareers.com will support agtech startup companies in creating a framework to fulfill their growing talent and HR needs by using the AgCareers.com resources available to them.
AgCareers.com will provide:
- Discounted talent solutions products that create awareness and deliver qualified agriculture candidates to fulfil their hiring needs
- Compensation data to ensure competitiveness in the agriculture industry
- Branding opportunities through the AgCareers.com platform and social media
- Assess, create, and deliver HR tools and resources to agtech companies
- Customer service to each agtech company through the collaboration
