Connie Tamoto, Cargill
Corporate Social Responsibility Representative

In A Nutshell

I create policies for our company to make sure we are doing business in a way that betters our communities, society, and employees.

I communicate these policies and programs to employees of the company, and make sure everyone, all the way up to the highest level of management, is following them.

I help make these policies and programs public knowledge, so the rest of the world can see what we’re promising, and hold us accountable to our commitments.

Important Skills

Interpersonal

As someone who represents our company, I need to feel very comfortable talking with employees, government workers, management, non-profit and charitable organizations (basically anyone that wants details on how our company is working towards being a good corporate citizen in the communities where our employees live and work).

Research

I'm always trying to collect numbers and data on how our company is hitting its corporate responsibility goals, and seeking out programs and initiatives run by charitable organizations that show our company’s commitment to the community. 

Public Speaking

I have to speak to the media or directly to the public about how our company is acting socially responsible.

Physical

It can take some convincing to get employees to realize they also play a role in the company’s social responsibility; being persuasive helps get everyone on the same team, and helps the public realize how seriously we’re taking our corporate responsibility commitments.
