Labor Risk Attributes in the Green Industry: Business Owners' and Managers' Perspectives

Vera Bitsch () and Stephen B. Harsh

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 2004, vol. 36, issue 3, 15

Abstract: Managers of greenhouses, nurseries, and landscape contractors participated in five focus group discussions on labor-related risks. Managers conceptualize labor risks along the human resource management process: (1) recruitment and selection, (2) training and development, (3) performance evaluation and discipline, (4) careers and relationships, and (5) compensation packages. In addition, they identified (6) immigrant employees and (7) labor laws and regulations as sources of risk. They recognized a large number of risk-increasing attributes, but also a number of mediating strategies to reduce these risks.
