Investing in the Future of Warehouse Management Education
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” This quote by Benjamin Franklin speaks to not only the value of education for individuals, but it can also speak to the value of education for companies. Many may think only the individual benefits from higher education, but in reality, knowledge and learning together is the rising tide that raises all ships. Continued learning allows individuals to improve themselves and become more valuable in the job market. It also helps improve companies who hire and listen to these individuals. In the end, knowledge can improve and enhance many parts of a business while a growing knowledge base helps the entire industry.
With the logistics industry facing one of the largest labor shortages, Extensiv wanted to contribute to this cause of higher education by creating the Extensiv Supply Chain Scholarship.
