In the 50th episode of the Growing in the Green Industry Podcast, hosts Macey Wollenberg, branch manager at LandCare, Neal Glatt, managing partner of GrowTheBench, Brett Lemcke, VP of R.M. Landscape and Luke Melograno, production coordinator at Mariani Landscape, talk with Michele Posehn, senior manager of diversity initiatives and university relations at SiteOne Landscape Supply.
Posehn’s career in recruiting started in 1999 and has been dedicated primarily in the corporate recruiting space for Fortune 500 companies. She came to SiteOne three years ago and has built relationships with school organizations to increase female and minority representation for entry-level talent. She developed a first-of-its-kind mentorship between SiteOne female professionals and a national Ag sorority, which expanded employer brand recognition across the country and resulted in permanent and intern hires.
In this podcast, Posehn and the hosts talk about company culture and methods to encourage connections, how to work together to bring about change and attract diverse populations to our industry, how an intentional focus on inclusion should be essential for every business, and much more.
