Women in Agribusiness recently recognized Beck Ag as Company of the Year at their summit in Minneapolis. They are the third company to be honored with the Demeter Award and join Dow AgroSciences (2013) and Agrium, Inc. (2014) as recipients. The award recognizes a company that supports the professional development, achievements and growth of women in the industry.
Beck Ag has a solid staffing model that allows employees to balance their careers and personal lives. This principle of balance has attracted professionals who wish to stay in their communities and who come from deep agriculture backgrounds. Sixty-seven percent of Beck Ag’s people are women, including five of the nine shareholders. They are committed to developing and compensating women fairly, which has benefitted the company, clients, and industry as a whole.
