CBH has been won the NAB rural employer of choice award at last night's prestigious ceremony at the MCG.
According to NAB, the award was given for CBH's recognition and support of talented, emerging leaders and its succession planning processes.
The cooperative has focused on the development of internal people from grass roots through to the leadership group, which has resulted in clearly defined career paths for all its employees.
Initiatives such as talent identification, emphasis on mentoring, succession planning, frontline management focus and encouragement and financial assistance for study purposes, have all supported the company's vision "to be the standout employer for the best people in the grain industry".
CBH chief executive officer, Imre Mencshelyi, said the award recognises the company's commitment to the "growth, development and physical and mental wellbeing of our people so that they are fully engaged in the business".
"That in turn helps to make sure our customers are fully engaged with our business," he said.
CBH Group employs more than 900 permanent staff and more than 1500 casual staff during harvest, and has a strong commitment to the growth and development of its people.
