On March 3rd Exel Logistics has been honored by LCFS for their commitment to refugees. The company has been working with different Resettlement Agencies in Harrisburg to fill entry level positions for decades. Carol Baer the HR Director who has been with the company for more than a decade is proud of the partnership and chance to work with so many diverse people over the years. Exel Logistics’ HR office is headquartered in Mechanicsburg, PA. However their operation is spread through out central PA.
So when in 2008 they expanded to Lancaster, it was a great time to reinforce the relationship built in Harrisburg. So when the new location in Lancaster was opened LCFS’s employment specialist Andy Kalala reached out to Jeremy Aldridge the Operations Manager of the Lancaster site to offer him LCFS Employments Services.
Since then Jeremy and Andy have been working together to fill open positions at Exel with refugees who meet the basic qualifications. This partnership has been a great display of what can be achieved when community partners work together and strive towards a successful future for everyone including the newest members the refugees.
