"I am pleased to join the Threemile Canyon Farms management team" said Rose Corral. "For 25 years, I have enjoyed working in every aspect of employee relations programs - and the part of my new job that I'll enjoy the most will be working directly with the farm and dairy employees and their families. I will provide an 'open bilingual ear' to employees to hear and respond to their needs, address any of their concerns and to continuously improve the quality of the workplace," added Corral.
"We are delighted to add Rose Corral's depth of professional skills and extensive experience to our team" said Marty Myers. "Throughout her work life, she has demonstrated the sensitivity and personal talents to address the needs of our individual employees. At Threemile Canyon Farms she will lead the company's efforts to implement best practice employment standards throughout our workplace to insure that our employees feel valued and have someone they can talk with who can resolve any concerns that may arise in the workplace."
"Rose Corral is joining Threemile Canyon Farms just as we are beginning to implement our Corporate Social Responsibility program. We worked throughout 2005 with the Business for Social Responsibility organization [headquartered in San Francisco] to develop the defined set of business practices and performance measurements which will convert our good intentions into intentional good actions," Myers added. [Threemile Canyon Farms will be publishing its first Corporate Social Responsibility Report, with an audit by the internationally recognized audit firm, SGS, in the first quarter of 2006.]
