Field supervisors, mayordomos, and crew leaders are the front line of your management team.

Comments from Participants

From Workers Supervised by ASDP Participants
"The truth is that he is a very good mayordomo and has learned a lot, that means that the program is very useful. One learns a lot because we all improve with mayordomos, so there is a lot of learning in agriculture."
"I feel more satisfied when I have a question about work or safety because now he answers us with more respect, explains more patiently and stops to ask if we understand."
