SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (July 8, 2021) — Logistics startup, Emerge, has been named a 2021 Top Workplace by AZ Central.

“The phase of growth we are in is critical. We are focusing our energy on finding the top talent in this industry. We will be making a huge investment in our people this year which not only includes recruiting and onboarding the best, but consistently growing the team members we have,” Director of Employee Experience, Teresa Turner said. “It is rare to find a team that is growing at this rate.
