U of M football coach P.J. Fleck helped bring the “March Madness” spirit to employees at the Land O’Lakes headquarters on March 30. Loren Heeringa (SVP and CHRO) introduced Coach Fleck, who shared his “row the boat” philosophy and the story of his personal journey to Minnesota. “The audience was enthused that he spoke with such passion,” said one attendee.

Friendly competitions included a “battle of the brackets,” a pop-a-shot basketball throw, and a celebration of the Final Four. The coach signed prize footballs for the Land O’Lakes United Way campaign and the bracket competition winners. Members of the Land O’Lakes Employee Council, who donate their time toward enhancing the employee experience, planned the event.
