Onett’s presentation at 1:15 p.m. ET on March 24, 2021 will address food auditor development and the selection of performance metrics that drive consistency across the supply chain.

“To realize the expected improvement in auditor performance, certification bodies must examine their current monitoring methods and measures for all technical roles involved in the certification audit delivery process,” said Kim Onett, Associate Director of Global Supplier Assurance at NSF International. “I am looking forward to a lively discussion regarding the future of our industry and what is next for food auditing.”

Onett’s presentation will provide insight on becoming the auditor of tomorrow by highlighting the science, defensibility and continuous improvement of audit services through innovation, hiring, training and calibration. She will also offer perspective on current auditor performance measures and competence, and how they should be reviewed to ensure soft skills capability is being clearly assessed.
