  • Raymond Co-Op Spotlight 2020

    Raymond has been employing co-op students in all areas of its business, helping to develop strong talent and prepare these students to either continue their career here at Raymond, or to enter the workforce elsewhere. Recognizing that the success of Raymond comes from its employees, Raymond hires a number of co-ops and currently employs over 1,750 individuals at its headquarters in Greene, NY.

    In 2020, Raymond employed a number of co-ops from surrounding universities. Check out what some of the students had to say about their experience at The Raymond Corporation.

Co-Op Appreciation Event 2020

Just like everything else in 2020, our annual Co-Op Appreciation luncheon presented the “opportunity” to learn and try new things. Previously, we hosted a luncheon with our Co-Ops to thank them for their contributions and have some fun. This year we hosted a virtual Co-Op Appreciation event and found creative activities for Co-Ops to engage with each other. The first activity had teams of Co-Ops choose items they’d want to have if they were stranded on a desert island. A Raymond Corporation trivia game was our second activity, offering teams of Co-Ops the chance to answer questions about our company history and products.

Our Executives joined our Co-Op Appreciation event, talking about his/her experience and offering advice to our Co-Ops.Some of their advice they shared is below:

  • Raise your hand to volunteer at every opportunity.
  • What you learn and your readiness to interact are so important. Ask questions and be engaged. Lifelong learning is the most important thing you can do for yourself.
  • Get the most out of your Co-Op and ask questions.
  • Leave footprints in the sand. Make decisions for the right reasons. When you’re trail blazing, no one can say you’re going in the wrong direction.
  • Do something that’s a little different than what you’re comfortable with, get out of your comfort zone. Ask questions about disciplines different than your own to gain a broader perspective.
  • Gain experience in team based problem solving including root cause analysis and creating counter measures.
  • Be open to all the twists and turns a career can take.
  • If something scares you, don’t avoid it. Don’t be afraid; do things that take you out of your comfort zone.
