Serve Our Co-ops; Serve Our Country
CIPCO is proud to join the coalition, Serve our Co-ops; Serve our Country. This is a nationwide initiative to honor and employ veterans, military service members, and their spouses. The program provides:
- Actionable resources and training to help co-ops implement nationally recognized leading practices in attracting, hiring, onboarding and retaining veterans.
- Co-op ideas and best practices in honoring and caring for the veterans that live in their local communities.
Serve Our Co-ops; Serve our Country addresses a workforce challenge faced by many co-ops – significant retirements projected in the next five to seven years and significant changes in technical talent requirements to supply safe, affordable and reliable power. America’s cooperatives can work together by joining the Serve our Co-ops; Serve our Country coalition to collaboratively increase employment opportunities for veterans and military spouses across the co-op network.
