Finding good, qualified employees is an ongoing struggle for businesses of all types, and especially precision departments at farm equipment dealers. As technology continues to evolve, the challenge only increases.
As Hutson Inc. looks at how to mainstream precision throughout its whole dealership and John Deere continues to move toward being a technology company, not just an ag equipment company, they are trying to grow their dealership into being a technology company too. And to get there, they recognize that they’ll need to attract individuals from outside of agriculture to work at their dealership.
In today’s Precision Farming Dealer podcast 3 members of Hutson Inc.’s precision department, with two of them being part of the internship program the dealership has developed and evolved to help with the process of mainstreaming precision throughout the dealership.
Included in the conversation were Karl Huebner, Integrated Solutions manager for Hudson Inc., now a 30-store Deere dealership based in Kentucky, and Andrew McCallister and Connor Smith, both interns with Hutson Inc. who found their way to the dealership outside of growing up in agriculture.
