It’s no secret that there is a workforce shortage in the supply chain industry. As a result, we have had to become creative in hiring, staffing, recruiting and retaining talent. At The Shippers Group, hiring practices include both direct hire and temporary staffing, while after 90 days, temporary staff become full time employees. The Shippers Group is a Veterans at Work Partner with initiatives to fill roles by veterans and military spouses. We are also establishing national accounts with American Staffing Associated partners. Benefits of this partnership are reduced costs to fill, established relationships to improve hire trends, improved safety, standards for hiring, and industry recognized hiring practices.
