Central Prairie Co-op recently launched a new opportunity for all employees . . . The CPC Professional Development Program. We are so excited that we not only filled up the first class, but a second class as well as having to start a wait list for participation! The concept behind this program is to provide interested staff a chance to learn, in greater detail, the importance and inner workings of each department and the value they bring to area producers.
      An employee’s participation can also provide more potential career opportunities within the cooperative and increase the level of cooperation amongst all our departments; which should translate to an even better customer experience. Most of the classes will be taught in house by our very own experienced management group – what a great mentorship opportunity for them, and a chance to share valuable experiences they’ve learned over their years in the industry.
     Class size is limited for a better experience and will be a combination of classroom time and on-site excursions to see first-hand the workings of all departments. Curriculum will include Grain Merchandising, Grain Marketing and Origination, Operations, Feed, Petroleum, Sales, Agronomy, Safety and Compliance, Finance, Human Resources, Co-op Principals 101, Leadership and Public Speaking. Classes begin this November!
