For those of us in the transportation logistics industry, if it’s April, that means it’s TIA 2018 Capital Ideas Conference and Exhibition. Celebrating its 40th year, TIA 2018 is the largest trade show of its kind solely focused on the issues confronting the brokerage-based 3PL logistics field. With over 1,300 TIA members, 70 exhibitors, 24 education sessions, 4 pre-conference seminars, and 5 general sessions, TIA 2018 is a conference like none other.
This year’s event is April 8-11 in Palm Desert, California. ZMac’s own Matt Ziegler will again be a featured speaker at two panel discussions.
Hear Matt speak on the following topics:

Compensation Strategies for “Full Employment”: Economy panel, April 11th at 4:00 pm
We have reached nearly full employment in the labor market, with 1.17 people for every open position. For many positions, the ratio is far worse. There is a lack of the desired skills and training. For our economy, this is a good problem. For employers, this means unfilled positions and paying more for worse talent (because that’s all you can get).
Now more than ever, employers need to stand out in the marketplace and provide attractive compensation and benefits packages to attract and retain the top talent. This does not, however, mean reverting to paying ridiculous commission rates or high sign-on bonuses. It does mean thinking about compensation as part of a total rewards package that provides the right mix of salary, incentives, benefits, and work-life balance. This ensures your workforce remains as stable as possible through this time, so that when it ends (and it will end) you do not find yourself stuck with overpaid underperforming talent.
Don’t miss out. If you can’t make it to this year’s tradeshow,
