Echo Global Logistics Receives Three Awards for Exceptional Approach to Recruiting Early Career Talent
CHICAGO, March 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo Global Logistics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECHO), a leading provider of technology-enabled transportation management services, has earned three awards for its exceptional approach to recruiting early career talent. The company has been named a 2021 Campus Forward Awards honoree by RippleMatch, a leading college recruitment platform; a Top 10 Internship Program by Scholars, a prominent player in the entry level talent space; and a Top 100 Entry Level Employer by CollegeGrad.com, the #1 entry level job site for college students and recent graduates. Echo earned these awards for its outstanding efforts in finding and connecting with early career talent through its internship program, shift to virtual recruitment, and prioritization of Diversity & Inclusion.
In response to the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Echo shifted both its internship program and its recruitment strategy to an entirely virtual model. Through its virtual summer internship program, Echo welcomed a full group of interns in 2020, who received best-in-class training and mentorship from Echo's team of experts in various departments. Additionally, Echo's pivot to virtual recruitment practices was well-received by candidates and has enabled the company to successfully reach its hiring goals.
Echo has a strong commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, and the company demonstrates this through its diversity recruitment strategies. To reach diverse candidates, Echo's recruitment team partners with external organizations, attends diversity job fairs, and works with Echo's own employee resource groups, such as the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Women at Echo, Military Employee Interest Group, Echo Pride, and more. Echo is continuously working to expand its D&I efforts to foster an inclusive culture and ensure employees of all backgrounds, perspectives, and abilities are empowered to reach their full potential.
"We're honored to receive these respected awards that recognize Echo as a top employer leading the way in college recruitment," said Doug Waggoner, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer at Echo. "We value all levels of experience and have worked diligently to enhance our recruiting practices and internship opportunities so the next generation of professionals can learn, grow, and develop their careers with Echo."
"At Echo, we've created and implemented numerous strategies so we could continue to recruit and onboard new hires despite the obstacles caused by COVID-19," said Paula Frey, Chief Human Resources Officer at Echo. "During this time, we've adopted various tools and technologies to maintain our unique workplace culture, allowing interns and other new team members to easily absorb the company culture despite working remotely due to the pandemic."
