US: Duncan Family Farms expands Employee Education Program

Duncan Family Farms, a grower of organic baby lettuces and greens, kales, and herbs with operations in the US has announced the expansion of its DFF University, continuing the education program for employees. The company has formalized the program to sharpen its focus on helping team members advance their skills and grow their careers.

Duncan Family Farms employs approximately 500 people across seven locations, including their most recent operations in Oregon and New York. With expansion, they see it as essential to implement technology and a curriculum that will allow for standardized employee education at all their locations.

"One of the goals in creating DFF University was to develop a framework that will allow the program to continue delivering benefits to our employees now and in the future," said Tina Huff, VP of Human Resources. 

"Too often, well-intended education efforts run out of steam over time and are abandoned. We're implementing new course management technology and an education oversight committee as part of our commitment to supporting the educational and career needs of our workforce for the long-term."

DFF University is designed to address two key areas: collaboration among teams and team members, and preparation for purposeful, sustainable company growth. 

The curriculum covers areas such as management practices, technical skills, operational expertise, language skills and mentorship with course titles including Our Culture, Management Musts, Food Safety Protocols and Turning Leadership Aspirations into Action.
