The employee exchange program allowed for complete knowledge integration of both offices and gave two of our employees a very unique opportunity to experience another part of the country and another part of our business operations.

In May, 2013 Conexus kicked off its employee exchange program. Designed to share knowledge, experience and insights between offices, one Conexus employee from the Tulsa headquarters switched places with one Conexus employee from the Laredo office for a period of four months.
Andres Garza, an International Account Manager from the Laredo office switched places with Kevin Hill, an Account Manager from the Tulsa office. Conexus set them both up with temporary housing during their time and then let the information sharing begin.
“What’s great about our employee exchange program is that we had the opportunity to fully integrate the knowledge from one office into another,” said Kyle Gholston, Vice President of Conexus. “Each of our offices offers something unique to our employees. Tulsa is our corporate headquarters and as such allows employees based in Tulsa the opportunity to participate in strategic planning sessions and meetings, the results of which will be implemented in Tulsa and later rolled out to our office in Laredo as well. Our Laredo team has the opportunity to view first-hand our yard operations while seeing how we manage loads at the border. The employee exchange program allowed for complete knowledge integration of both offices and gave two of our employees a very unique opportunity to experience another part of the country and another part of our business operations.”
The employee exchange program officially ends this month when at least one of the two employees will be returning home. Kevin Hill was offered an opportunity to stay and continue working at the Laredo office for an indefinite period of time which he accepted and he will remain a part of the Laredo team.
