Singapore – August 20, 2020 - Corteva Agriscience has been named an Employer of Choice by HR Director (HRD) Magazine in the annual HRD Asia Awards 2020. The awards cover 11 key areas of the employee experience and are given in recognition of companies that display strong commitment to engaging and growing their employees throughout their careers.

Corteva brought home the gold medal following a panel analysis of the company’s initiatives and a research process that reaches out to employees for additional references.

According to HRD, Corteva Agriscience has a culture of learning and emphasis on staff to ”Be Curious”. Learning opportunities are infused in all facets of an employee’s career, from subscriptions to top learning applications, participation in regional initiatives, cross-country functional learning programs, and in-country competency development programs.

“It is an honor to join a group of exceptional companies recognized as Employers of Choice, not only for their consistent efforts in engaging employees, but also as a company that has a keen understanding of the changing demands of today’s highly competitive labor landscape,” said Theresa Effeney, Corteva Agriscience Human Resources Director, Asia Pacific. 

“The unprecedented conditions of 2020 may have put us on our toes in ensuring all Corteva Agriscience employees remain safe and well. To top this with the recognition as an Employer of Choice confirms that we, as an organization, can come out stronger amid any challenge as long as we stand united in delivering our purpose while staying true to our values and commitment,” said Effeney.

Corteva Agriscience is the first agriculture company to win this award. It marked its first year as a standalone pure-play agriculture company in June after spinning off from DowDuPont.
