The Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime People and Culture Office welcomed 14 new employees to Columbus, Ohio, and four from the detachments at the July New Employee orientation held July 26-27 using the Defense Collaboration System. Griff Warren, Chief of Operations, welcomed the group and answered questions from the audience.

The session also included presenters from Fire and Safety, Legal Counsel, Equal Employment Opportunity, DLA Intelligence and many more.  New employees received information on how to prepare their Individual Development Plan and what they can expect during the Department of Defense Performance Management and Appraisal Program cycle.
