COVID-19 triggered a radical transformation of the workforce across all industries, but the impact on the supply chain sector has been especially acute. There simply aren’t enough qualified people to fill all the roles, from driving trucks and staffing warehouses to handling administrative tasks and operating the technology. There’s been more change in the supply chain workplace in the last two years than in the previous 50, says Jason Averbook, co-founder and chief executive officer of Leapgen, a venture focused on the digital transformation of HR. On this episode, he discusses how “a melting pot of issues” is compelling employers to take an entirely new approach to workers, if they wish to attract and retain the talent they need. It’s about more than just raising wages — the challenge is to build and maintain a working environment for a future that, for all practical purposes, has already arrived.
