A discussion with Drew Ratterman, winner of the 2018 ATD Excellence in Practice Award for Corteva AgroSciences' efforts to attract, develop, and retain talent. In this session, Drew will provide some background how Corteva's practices have evolved and the steps taken to receive this recognition and to be named among Talent Management Magazine's Top 125. Hopefully, a lively discussion opens up after the prepared comments to make the program as meaningful as possible to participants.
After completing a DowElanco internship in Coastal Crops Drew was hired by Dow AgroSciences in 1998 as a Sales Representative in Professional Pest Management. Drew continued in that role until March 2000 when he assumed the role of Market Development Specialist for New Construction. In 2000, Drew transferred to Dow AgroSciences Headquarters in Indianapolis to continue the Market Development role and help launch My Account@Dow and Easy Pay for the Professional Pest business. Drew assumed the Pest Management Communication Specialist responsibilities in 2002. In 2004 Drew was promoted to Marketing Manager for Vikane & ProFume gas fumigants, and later assumed Sales Management for the Profume Sales Team. In January 2007, Drew joined the Six Sigma group within Dow AgroSciences. After completing 18 projects in 18 months a Six Sigma Black Belt certification was attained.
In August of 2008, Drew began working in the space of attracting, developing, and retaining top talent for Dow Agro Sciences as the US Market Sell Workforce Leader. In 2014, Drew was promoted into the role of overseeing all US Commercial Recruitment and Talent Development. In this role Drew served on the North American Business Management Team for Dow AgroSciences. Once Dow and DuPont came together in 2017, Drew continued his focus as Sales Effectiveness and Development Leader for Corteva Agriscience. In 2017, Corteva was recognized internationally and across industries by Talent Management Magazine’s Top 100 and the Association of Talent Development for excellence in practice due to Drew’s programs.
In these roles, Drew has become passionate about attracting more professionals to agriculture, and professional development for future leaders of the Agricultural industry. Over the past several years, Drew has volunteered with organizations such as FFA, AFA, AZ, AGR, MANRRS, The National Academy of Sciences, and numerous Agricultural Colleges. He has directed the funds of Dow AgroSciences and The Dow Chemical Company to support university and student programs improving the diversity and quality of student experiences at select Colleges of Agriculture. Drew has served on a National Academy of Sciences Working Group, the Alpha Zeta Foundation Board, and the Steering Committee of CSAW (the Coalition for a Sustainable Agricultural Workforce). He has been asked to speak on related topics for National Academy of Sciences Committees, with APLU, WERA, and USDA Working Groups, and at national conferences such as NAADA and Ag Careers to improve the pipeline of Ag talent. Drew has said, “Without the proper process, technology, and talent, the Ag Industry will not be able to meet the needs of a growing world.”
Drew received his B.S. in Agricultural Economics from Auburn University in 1996 and proceeded to receive an MBA in Marketing from the University of Kentucky in 1998.
