Q2, 2022: Developing the Workforce of Tomorrow
Behind every successful business there is a team of people responsible for it being at the top. That is why, in the Q2 issue of Seaports, we take a look at what it takes to build the best possible team. Leading-edge technology and top-notch equipment are only as good as the people who are operating the machinery. Likewise, even the smartest team of talent needs a knowledgeable and competent leader and a fair and inclusive environment to realize full potential – personally, for the team and for the organization.
