Cooperative boards face many important decisions, including selecting a CEO or general manager. Boards that have worked with CHS Cooperative Resources to choose their next leader tell us they like our collaborative process with frequent touchpoints, clear timelines and proven understanding of what makes each cooperative unique.
To source, select and hire the right individual, we’ll help you prioritize what you’re seeking in your next leader, including both hard and soft skills such as risk taking and problem-solving ability. Together, we’ll thoroughly assess candidates based on your vision, mission, culture and organizational priorities. If appropriate, we can help you hire an interim cooperative CEO/GM, giving you time to evaluate your business strategy and/or conduct a more expansive search.
CHS Cooperative Resources has extensive industry connections to locate a robust array of applicants, including qualified candidates both within and outside of the cooperative system. We take our role in your hiring process very seriously as we partner with you through the sourcing, selecting, hiring and onboarding process – including 90-day and six-month follow-ups as well as assisting with the one-year performance review.
