Talent Acquisition in Supply Chain

May 17, 2023

The discovery of talent for any field requires a lot more than simple recruiting at times. Whereas the goal of recruiting is to quickly fill a role, the goal of talent acquisition is a continuous recruitment process that requires a lot of strategizing, and also aims to search and maintain talent for the long-haul. When it comes to the logistics industry there are several specific factors that have to be considered when acquiring new talent.

What does talent acquisition look like in the supply chain, specifically in regard to logistics?

For an episode of People on the Move, host Michelle Dawn Mooney talked to Sam Ahmed, the Principal Recruiter for the Talent Acquisition Team at Cargomatic. The two discussed Ahmed’s professional background, the logistics industry, and what procuring talent looks like in the logistics field.
