With an eye toward attracting next-generation workers to careers in logistics and recognizing top talent among young professionals, the industry group MHI has launched a campaign to find the 2016 Face of the Supply Chain.
The award will go to a supply chain professional whose personal story demonstrates the hard work, creative thinking, and commitment to innovation required to succeed in the industry.
MHI created the contest as part of an effort called #iWorkInTheSupplyChain that is intended to change the perception of jobs in manufacturing and the supply chain and to illustrate their challenging and rewarding nature.
Visit www.iworkinthesupplychain.com by Feb. 15 to share your story and join the inspiring entries for 2016 Face of the Supply Chain contest, or browse the site anytime to view videos, worker biographies, and personal testimonials. MHI leaders will announce the winning entry at the Modex 2016 trade show, which takes place April 4-7 in Atlanta.
The site also features an interactive blog, where professionals can join the conversation, tell their unique stories, upload videos, share posts on social media, and connect with other manufacturing and supply chain professionals.
