Joe Dagnese Martin Tewari
Con-way has a records retention policy that has not been upgraded for several years and there are many elements changing in this area which call for a strategic plan of action to address organizational needs and minimize risk.
Engineers are hard to source and in limited supply, they are also mission critical to Menlo's business strategy. Menlo needs a well defined, innovative and sustainable strategy to identify, attract, develop and retain this critical talent and minimize risk to the business.
