Fostering a culture of innovation
Whether you are receiving a truckload of turkey poults in Nebraska or 200 000 trout eggs in the Peruvian highlands, you expect a high quality product and expert support from Hendrix Genetics. It all starts with our training program, find out how we do this around the world to better serve customers.
Traditionally training is done with an instructor, face to face. They would explain policies, best practices and so on. This method alone does not fit with a company like ours that has operations in dozens of counties across continents. A solution would have to be created that ensures a farm manager in France and a farm manager in Canada follow the same policies and understand why they are there and why they are important. Technology provided an answer
Agriculture is a traditional industry in many ways. This provides a perfect environment for proven innovations to power companies like Hendrix Genetics to the top. Through the implementation of standardized eLearning technology, we have managed to bring constancy and continual improvment across our workforce and around the world to our customers.
