The world is constantly evolving, and many businesses have embraced the adage that we must change with the times and be able to adapt quickly to new situations. What does this mean for the logistics industry? With freight volumes increasing, will we invest in new technology and ideas or will we go back to repeating the same bad habits and wonder why we’re not able to compete?
Multitasking… what many have considered the recipe to success for a very long time. Is it truly the key to maximum efficiency and productivity though?
Keeping you ahead of the game with the latest industry insights and exclusive content.
With the new surge in coronavirus cases and restrictions ramping up again, this time around things look a little different: people are experiencing pandemic fatigue. Most are tired of living in this National State of Emergency and many are collectively exhausted from the never-ending policies. It’s challenging to manage your time when you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, or when you’re operating in reactive mode. Working professionals are challenged with new ways to focus their attention and spend their time. Regardless of where you’re working, in the office or at home, most people are battling pandemic fatigue and now is the time to master proactive time management.
Due to the ever-changing, fast-paced, constantly evolving world that we live in today, a career in sales can be daunting. From the perspective of two college students, and aspiring sales professionals, this fear is ever-present. However, in the presence of a strong culture within a sales organization, this risk can be mitigated, and the overall success of the individual as well as the company is greatly improved. Strong company cultures help to build goal-oriented individuals that are held accountable to their goals as well as their actions. This alongside a strong support system and a positive attitude can vastly change the way sales operates within an organization, and ultimately the success of the individual as well as the company.
Kickstart the search for a career… and now, throw a world pandemic into that process. With the surge of coronavirus cases, many universities are adjusting their career fairs to a virtual setting. Even with all the change that comes with shifting from in-person to virtual, the goal of these career fairs remains the same: we want to attract and acquire skilled students to meet our organizational needs. These career fairs are similar to Microsoft Teams or Zoom breakout rooms where candidates rotate through rooms of the companies in attendance. They are fast paced with set time parameters before candidates are moved to different breakout rooms. Candidates and recruiters are up against the clock. If there has ever been a time to perfect your “elevator pitch,” now is the time! As a recruiter and employer looking for people to join our Pegasus Family, we wanted to offer some tips for college graduates attending virtual career fairs.
In a time that has forced the majority of the workforce to work from home, we are now led with the charge to engage and lead our teams virtually. One-to-ones, team meetings, and even social events are all held remotely and virtually. With this change, people can quickly lose their persona over the phone or video calls, and relationships can be more difficult to maintain. Even worse, if you are a leader in your organization, like me, we can become a “voice” rather than an individual.
