Recruitment and retention of new employees is critical to the long-term success of Cal/West Seeds. We are pleased to have this new resource available and support its objectives.
Paul Frey, President & CEO
We look forward to including the Seed Business 101 course into our orientation and development of young managers and new hires. This program will accelerate the development process of our young recruits and be valuable in helping more experienced people learn the nuances of our industry and make a more rapid contribution to our business.
Matthew Johnston, President & COO
I see great value in the Seed Business 101 course. Employee productivity and retention are critical to our small, privately owned company. In the last year we have hired 5 talented people that knew nothing about the seed industry. This course can make them a lot more productive quicker.
Ken Owens, President
This training resource will help us with the task of accelerating the introduction of talented new recruits to the complexities of the seed business. It will nicely complement their prior academic education. The group-based discussions provide a great forum to improve their understanding of the fundamental activities central to success in the seeds business.
Marlin Edwards, Chief Technology Officer
Monsanto Vegetable Seeds
Syngenta is constantly hiring new employees to work in the very complicated seed industry. We are very excited about the training opportunity Seed Business 101 offers to move our high performing new employees along the learning curve at an accelerated rate. I am very pleased that a session of the course will be held in the Boise region. Syngenta is committed to helping to make the course a great success.
