The Value of Providing a Second Chance

Thursday, January, 2019

5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
LeSaint Logistics | Bolingbrook, IL


Both widespread and pervasive throughout our field, the warehouse labor shortage is forcing employers to become increasingly creative to find untapped sources of qualified workers. In this Educational Forum, long-time warehousing practitioner Scott Whiting will share how one 3PL succeeded in resolving their labor shortage challenge by embracing a new hiring approach based on collaboration and flexibility.


Whiting will share examples of corporate policies that support increased employee flexibility. He will also offer insight into how to partner with community-based organizations to both tap into a new pool of potential employees, and to gain access to local programs that help employers with training costs.
