Inc. Magazine recently published an article by Link Logistics chief executive officer Luke J. Petherbridge. Writing for Inc. Masters, an invitation-only membership community for executives of the fastest-growing private companies in America, Petherbridge draws from his experience leading Link Logistics to share five ways that hiring talent from outside an organization’s own sector can drive business success.
“Departments across Link Logistics benefit every day from the contributions of team members who previously never worked in industrial real estate,” he writes in the article. “I have great conviction that companies in nearly every sector stand to gain from strategically hiring people from other realms.”
Petherbridge details several competitive advantages for companies that are open to hiring people with varied professional experiences. Gains cited by Petherbridge include access to specialized skillsets, adaptable mindsets and novel perspectives.
“At Link Logistics, we have seen firsthand all of these benefits to hiring from outside our industry,” he writes. “Looking beyond your own sector to find that next superstar team member might be a better idea than ever.”
