Posted by Margaret Harvey on Mar 3, 2021
At the end of last year, The Shippers Group featured a blog about our company’s growth, and with that growth came the need for the right people to manage it. When filling these needed positions, The Shippers Group looked internally and leveraged this growth into opportunities for our current associates.
“At The Shippers Group, we invest in our associates because an investment in our people is an investment in the future of our company. Their hard work and innovative ideas are what sets us up for growth, so we are committed to training and developing our associates to have long and successful careers at The Shippers Group.”
