Meet: Angela Hawkinson, Human Resources Coordinator/Office Associate
If you are a new employee with Full Circle Ag, one of the first faces you will see is that of Angela Hawkinson. As our Human Resources Coordinator and Office Associate, Angela’s role consists of onboarding newly hired employees, administering employee benefits, along with handling accounts payable for the agronomy and energy departments. She is also one of the friendly voices you may hear on the phone when you call our main office in Britton.
Angela is a 2002 graduate of Britton High School. She attended Lake Area Tech for Dental Assisting and worked at a family dental practice in Britton. She has been with Full Circle Ag for nearly 7 years. She is currently a member of the Land O Lakes HR Council and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Angela is also serving on the North Central Chapter board for the National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives (NSAC).
Always looking to further her education, Angela has also participated in the Rural Economic & Leadership Development (REAL) Program and is 2019 graduate of the Tomorrow’s Ag Leaders (TAL) program. “Believing in something and wanting to be part of something great inspires me. I feel I am grateful to be able to experience both of those here at FCA. It is rewarding to be a part of a team that is continually looking to strive at giving our member owners the best of the best.” – Angela Hawkinson
Hope Christenson, CFO, says, “Angela is an essential part of the Full Circle Ag team! She is a friendly face for our new hires and goes above and beyond for all of the Full Circle Ag employees when it comes to administering employee benefits. Her positive attitude is something to be admired and she is always willing to help her fellow colleagues with a task or take on new responsibilities. The knowledge she gains from her membership to several councils/societies helps continue to make Full Circle Ag a success for our member-owners. We truly appreciate Angela and everything she does for the company!”
How does Angela stay motivated? “Motivation comes from working on things we care about. It also comes from working with people we care about. From my HR perspective, caring for our employees in making sure they have a clear understanding of our company’s policies/procedures and knowing that it helps enables our employees and the overall co-op to reach our company’s objectives, is something that motivates me.”
In her spare time, Angela enjoys spending most of her time outdoors as long as the weather allows and binging a good TV series. She is also busy running to her kids’ various activities.
