If you are looking for tips on how to hire talent for your food production business, you’ve come to the right place! Our team at Spectra360 has found reliable food production workers for some of the largest food production companies in the nation. In this blog, we will discuss the top 3 skills a hiring manager should look for when hiring food production workers.
Meticulous hygiene and ability to comply with all regulations
All roles in a food production company revolve around the notion that anything created, packaged, and delivered from the warehouse must be safe to consume.
Meticulous hygiene is self-explanatory! As for the second part of this skill, we recommend allowing enthusiastic applicants with the willingness to learn to train and learn about the health standards/regulations before passing on them due to lack of work experience.
Situational awareness in a noisy and chaotic setting
Working in a food production warehouse involves being around heavy machinery. These machines constantly prep, mix and process the ingredients that make the food and beverages. The caveat to not mixing the ingredients by hand would be the loud noise they produce. Nonetheless, food production workers should know what’s going around them at all times for their safety and the safety of others around them.
Precision and attention to detail
Imagine your company having to recall thousands of your products due to the mistake of the talent you hired.
According to FoodSafety.gov, food recalls in the United States occur weekly! In 2019, the United States Department of Agriculture reported nearly 150 recalls.
Understandably so, mistakes happen, but it is important to stay proactive when hiring talent to prevent slip-ups from occurring in your company!
