    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.

    - by Transplace

    We are thrilled to announce that Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico, will be our keynote speaker at the 12th annual Shipper Symposium, May 12-14 in Dallas!

    Vicente Fox served as President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, winning a historic election that ended 71 years of consecutive rule by the Institutional Revolutionary Party.  The efforts of Fox’s presidency included big steps toward improving trade relations with the U.S., the support of NAFTA, and decreasing civil unrest and crime.  He worked passionately to boost Mexico’s economy and end government corruption, and has been an inspiration to many in the political and business world.
