The reBound: Looking for Talent In All the Right Places: How Essendant is Revolutionizing Recruitment

The shortage of supply chain talent, especially on the line, isn’t new: It just became more visible during the pandemic. What’s more, with baby boomers retiring every day, it’s only likely to become more of a challenge in the future. What’s a supply chain manager to do? The answer is to begin looking for talent among overlooked and underutilized communities.

They have also launched a program to train and educate young hires with the potential to lead. The results are impressive.
