New resource supports member cooperative talent needs

The new resource will help member cooperatives find leadership talent.
Dec 7, 2022

CHS has introduced a new resource to help member cooperatives address key talent needs. The Member Cooperative Job Board displays leadership opportunities at member cooperatives, including openings for CEO, CFO, controller, human resources leads and division/department heads.

Any CHS member cooperative can submit a job opening, which will link to the position posting or the co-op website so potential candidates can learn more and connect with the co-op directly.

“Finding talented individuals to help member cooperatives address owner and business needs today and in the future is a key concern for CHS,” says Mark Biedenfeld, who leads the cooperative resources team at CHS. “As we work with member co-ops on strategic talent planning, one recurring need shared by co-op leaders is the need for new ways to identify and attract talented people to the cooperative system. The new Member Cooperative Job Board is one tool to help meet that need.”

To submit a job opening, member cooperatives can visit the site and complete a brief form. Following verification of the information, the opening will be posted on the job board for 90 days. All communication with candidates will be handled by the cooperative making the posting, and CHS will neither promote nor recommend specific openings or candidates.
