This is the second episode in our “Delivering Apex” mini-series, in partnership with Apex Logistics.
Last week in Episode 1, “Apex Cares,” I was joined by Amy Froese and Holly Qualman to talk all about quality service and giving back – why it’s so important and the different programs Apex are involved in to truly help make the world a better place.
Today in Episode 2, “We Deliver Passion,” I’m joined by Sangna Mistry Kuhia, Vice President of Human Resources and Organizational Development at Apex, to talk about people – the ins and out of hiring and retention, Apex’s people-led approach and why a motivated, dedicated and passionate workforce is the key to success.
