It’s essential for logistics companies to examine the recruitment and hiring practices that they have in place to ensure that they are hiring the brightest and best talent in their respective industry. Landing the best talent to help run your logistics company can be an added competitive edge for a business. The effects of the right hire can impact your business’ efficiency and productivity – saving much needed time. Because let’s face it, in the logistics industry, time is always of the essence.
When you think your company is ready to hire, you need to establish that you have the building blocks for success and retention in place. Consider if you the proper reputation, compensation plan and benefits, perks, resources and career advancement in place BEFORE you promote the job. A Logistics and Supply Chain Recruiting agency, such as CS Recruiting, can bring you the all-star candidate once you have identified the main attributes you are looking for, and you will be much happier with the selection if you have goals for the open role.
For example, if you are hiring a Sales Manager for your company, be sure you have determined the type of culture you want your company to have. Should the candidate be prepared to dress business casual everyday, or is your culture more laid back? Do you have the right technology in place so they can come in and hit the ground running from day 1 and successfully manage a team of freight brokers? You’ll save a lot of time and effort by putting together the building blocks for success and retention in place prior to hiring the brightest talent.
