CULTURE OF INCLUSION
Just as farmers use a variety of seed to maximize their yield, we also make it a priority to grow and cultivate our employees into an environment where differences are embraced and used to strengthen the organization. GROWMARK believes in employing diverse individuals and teaching them to leverage their uniqueness. We build on each other’s differences and turn them into strengths, so that we can continue to grow and perform well. We promote a culture of inclusion and team-work that when embraced, creates a winning team and a progressive company that is growing and changing with the world around it.
OUTREACH AND PARTNERSHIPS
GROWMARK takes it a step further by engaging in proactive outreach efforts to achieve workforce diversity. We cast our recruiting net wide to reach an array of local diversity groups and associations. We partner and build meaningful relationships with these resources to produce diversity in our candidate pool. GROWMARK is also an active member of the
Equal Employment Advisory Council,
IAA Family of Companies Military Support Group, and sponsors local chapters of
American Agri-Women and
Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences (MANRRS). We participate in the
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Statement of Support program pledging to support the military service of our employees. Additionally, we engage in partnerships with
Student Veterans of America and other local
Disability Resources Groups.
Our people are everything to our business success, and we are dedicated to their career growth and development. We have taken care to build a community that fosters mutual respect in the midst of diverse thought and perceptions. Doing this, we are positioned better for collaboration, adaptability and innovation that in turn, better serves our customers. As a global company, it is important we embrace the unique experiences, ideas, backgrounds and cultures of our employees that equip us to carry out our mission “To be the best agricultural cooperative system in North America.” If you are looking for a culture of inclusion and work environment that values diversity, consider a career with GROWMARK!
