Ranch Manager
Development Program

This is an extensive program developed specifically for our Ranch Managers who handle the day-to-day operations on our farms. The program leverages key competencies, such as discipline, communication and humility which are incorporated and practiced from our high-performing managers in both the U.S. and Mexico. Master facilitators conduct sessions and offer additional leadership tools to continuously foster and promote effective relationship -building and communication techniques for our ranch managers.

Crew Leader
Development Program

Similar to the Ranch Manager Development Program we also leverage core competencies with our crew leaders who manage our harvesters. These leadership skills focus on incorporating qualities such as fairness, respect, empathy and teamwork into everyday job functions. Our facilitators conduct recurring sessions which offer our crew managers tools to instill quality leadership techniques.

Lean Initiative

At RAC, we are committed to driving efficiencies throughout our business, eliminating waste and increasing performance and continuous improvement. Our leaders are trained and educated on this “lean” philosophy and key strategic concepts are promoted from top to bottom, then bottom to top; driving a culture that strives to curb waste in processes, practices and operational systems throughout the organization.
