    Customer Perspective: Do Your Partnerships Pack a Punch?

    - by Transplace

    Partnerships are extremely important on a number of levels, and they drive so much of what we do in our industry – but what exactly are the ins-and-outs of a strong, mutually-beneficial partnership?

    While the term “partnership” is very over-used in many industries, fundamentally, it means that both parties working together are achieving the desired results. However, when KMG Chemicals began looking for a partnership, we were looking for something that was far more structured in order to be beneficial on a much higher level.

    PSST! Why HR Requires Your Attention

    - by Transplace

    In 2011, Transplace increased its focus on human resources (HR). First, by hiring Adrianne Court as Chief Human Resources Officer and second by supporting her vision, which transformed the HR functions within the organization in less than two years. By focusing on areas such as continuous investment in learning and professional development, reward and recognition and talent development programs, we’ve seen the impacts of a great HR department that are felt both internally by employees and externally by customers.  And most recently, others have recognized it as well. In December, Adrianne was named as DallasHR’s Human Resources Executive of the Year Award, an annual award recognizing an HR executive who has exemplified the strategic role of HR and who is an outstanding leader within the HR community.

    A Quick Look Ahead: RILA 2014

    - by Transplace

    I’m looking forward to attending RILA’s Retail Supply Chain Conference next week (San Diego, Feb 23-26) for a number of reasons – and not just because the weather should be better! First and foremost, RILA is simply a great gathering of diverse retail supply chain professionals.  It’s also one of the most focused industry events that I’ve attended, as it exhibits a targeted, almost devout focus on logistics and the supply chain matters with respect to the retail industry and associated service providers.  This conference serves the needs of all the key constituencies in the industry, including the supply chain providers and retailers themselves while keeping a keen eye on what makes it all go – the consumer.
