2022 Difference Maker Award Winner

Feb 22, 2023

Award Winner
Many times, our employees demonstrate our core values and make a difference without blinking an eye. Farmers Cooperative truly has a dedicated employee base that takes pride in the work we do and the patrons and communities we serve. With so many employees and locations, these difference making acts don't always get recognized by our peers. Because of that, we have the Difference Maker Award, an employee recognition program to help spotlight the hard work employees demonstrate on a day-to-day basis. This program recognizes employees who demonstrate any one of our core values and how they make a difference at work or in their communities. 

The following employees were nominated in 2022

Garret Wright - Filley Agronomy Cathy Rohrs - Auburn C-Store
Scott Danner - Virginia
Jamie Sand - Safety Team/Dorchester
David Dorn - Firth Station Matt Korbel - Seward Station
Bruce Rahe - Plymouth Grain Jodie Jasper - Milligan

This year's Difference Maker Award winner is David Dorn - Tire Sales Specialist | Firth Tire

David's Nomination: 

David is the kind of employee that the Coop is lucky to have. He is constantly thriving to be better for his community by providing quality and personable service. He is an example to those around him and does not shy away from helping out anywhere he can. David makes it possible for his coworkers to have a good day. He is respectful and helpful in many ways and deserves all the recognition possible. 
David has also spent multiple years volunteering at the local fire department, assists in any safety trainings, customer appreciations, or community events as often as he can.

Thank you David for making a difference at Farmers Cooperative!

Congratulations to David and all of our employees who were nominated in making a difference. Thank you to those employees for their nominations and we look forward to hearing more incredible stories over the course of this next year.

Employees continue to make a difference at work and our communities. We know there are countless examples of how our employees demonstrate our core values and make a difference in coworkers, customers, or their neighbors lives. If you know of any fellow employee going above and beyond, nominate them as a difference maker.

To nominate you may click here for the FORM, or find it under the Company News section on the ADP mobile app, or the difference maker section on the ADP homepage on your computer. After the form is submitted and reviewed, the employee being nominated will be contacted for some basic information. The top nominations will be voted on and the difference maker with the most votes will be awarded at the annual employee retreat.
