Created by United Fresh’s Wholesaler-Distributor Board, this new resource covers key activities for new employees, including interviewing potential staff, employee safety, warehouse training, loading skills, receiving product and driver delivery.
“The Wholesaler-Distributor Board identified the need for improved training and retaining of frontline employees as a key area of focus for our businesses,” said Jackie Caplan Wiggins, vice president and COO, Frieda’s Inc. and Chair of United Fresh’s Wholesaler-Distributor Board. “We created this tool so that companies can adopt key training practices in the various checklists to integrate into their own operations for improvement.”
