    Highlights of Shipper Symposium 2016: Part 1

    - by Transplace

    We kicked off the 14th annual Shipper Symposium in sunny San Antonio this week and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring together industry luminaries, keynote speakers, partners, carriers and customers!

    Tom Sanderson, CEO of Transplace, officially welcomed attendees and introduced the evening’s keynote speaker, Jim Morris, a former MLB baseball player and the subject of the movie The Rookie. Focusing on the importance of choices, Morris said: “You make up your own mind about what you want to be and what you want to do. It’s the choices that we make that make us who we are.” Morris shared with the audience how learning to follow his dreams, telling the truth no matter what and “walking the walk” has helped him throughout his life, and drove him to finally realize his dream of pitching in the major leagues. His final takeaway for attendees was simple: “If you don’t chase your own dreams, that’s your fault.”

    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.
