GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO) announced that it plans to hire approximately 3,000 people in France over the next two years to accommodate the increased demand for its e-commerce services. The new workers will join GXO’s existing workforce of over 8,000 people spread over roughly 80 locations across France. Following significant business growth and contract renewals with major internet retailers, GXO is increasing its personnel in preparation for the projected establishment of additional logistics platforms in France over the next two years.
GXO is looking for logistics agents, materials handlers, maintenance technicians, and inventory managers to join their team. The organization will also hire for several other positions, such as team leaders and operation managers, process and flow engineers, and project managers, among others.
GXO is also aggressively investing in technology and automation, such as collaborative robots, cobots, and other technologies that enable employees to work securely, be more productive and have a more enjoyable overall work experience. GXO can now allow its employees to establish career paths that will transform the logistics business as a result of these efforts.
GXO is continually developing innovative programs to attract, develop, and retain talent to be an “employer of choice” based on strong core values because employees are at the heart of its business. Employees receive substantial training throughout the organization, which increases safety, and productivity, and enables skill development and personal well-being at work. Internal mobility and career development programs have resulted in certain members of the new teams entering the new logistics platforms.
