Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, Triangle Cooperative Service Company, Inc. and the Oklahoma Agricultural Cooperative Council, Inc. are excited to announce a partnership to bring talent development and recruitment to their members. Talent has been, and always will be, a driving force for sustained growth and success at a local cooperative.
“We believe this partnership will help cultivate, build and strengthen cooperative leadership for the future of our system,” said Dan Kent, Vice President of Value Added Services at TCSC.
With this announcement, they are excited to welcome Jim Warner as a joint employee of TCSC and the OACC. Warner, a retired Lt. Colonel in the United States Army and retired human resource consultant, brings years of experience to the table to help develop employees for the future success of cooperatives.
“We have no doubt that Jim’s experience in recruitment and development will be extremely beneficial to the future of the cooperative system,” said RJ Gray, President and CEO of the OACC.
Through this partnership, the two companies plan to bring recruitment and talent development to local cooperatives, their employees and their board of directors — development ranging from leadership growth to basic customer service.
This partnership also will work to attract and retain some of the best minds to the cooperative system. Warner will be working with local colleges and universities to attract this talent into the system. He will help enhance the existing internship program as well as the cooperative manager training program by identifying qualified candidates for each program.
