The Farm Service Agency’s Human Resources Division hosted its first flash mentoring session last week to provide employees an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience from leaders in the agency. “This benefits employees by introducing them to leaders within the organization who can offer a different perspective, provide information and give resolutions to employees who have certain areas of concern,” said Shirene Warner, HRD program manager who organized the event. The 27 employees in attendance discussed customer service, career development, balancing worklife and other topics with mentors Mark Rucker, deputy administrator for Management; Latrice Hill, acting deputy director for Outreach; Robert Haughton, acting director of Emergency Preparedness Division; Joy Harwood, director of Economic Policy Analysis Staff and Jose Gonzalez, director of Commodity Operations Division. Warner said additional mentoring events will be offered throughout the year.
