Our guest in this week's episode is Dan Johnston, co-founder and CEO of WorkStep, a hiring and retention solution for the supply chain industry. We have heard about driver shortages for years, but the pandemic and the overall high employment levels have made it even more difficult to find qualified truckers. Johnston shares what can be done to attract and retain drivers in a very tight labor market.
Movement towards an electric vehicle future continues to roll forward. This week there were some new deals that reinforced the growth of the electric market. Will the momentum continue?
Even with the pandemic and other supply chain challenges, companies in our sector have not given up on their sustainability goals. In fact, they have increased them. What are the driving factors and how are companies meeting the challenge of lowering the environmental impacts of their supply chains?
