Fleets have just a couple more weeks to submit applications for Trucking HR Canada’s second annual Top Fleet Employers program, which recognizes the best workplaces in the nation’s trucking industry.
Initial online applications are due on Feb. 27 at www.truckingHR.com. Hard copies of supporting documents are due March 27. Fleets which applied last year will benefit from a streamlined submission process.
The program rates fleets on topics including employee recognition, compensation, lifestyle, employee engagement, wellness, professional development, recruitment and retention. The review process includes a comprehensive online application, followed by a hard-copy submission, employee surveys and follow-up interviews.
The vigorous selection criteria reflects Canadian human resources issues, trends and working environments, and have been validated by a panel of trucking industry experts and a Certified Human Resource Professional (CHRP). They also echo Trucking HR Canada’s standards of excellence, and consider every fleet occupation.
Recognized employers in the 2014 program included: Bison Transport, Erb Group of Companies, Home Hardware, J&R Hall Transport Inc., Kindersley Transport, Kriska Transportation, Logikor Inc., MacKinnon Transport Inc., SLH Transport, and Transport Freight Systems Ltd. Information on their best practices have been published in the Drive to Excellence report at www.truckinghr.com/en/content/drive-excellence.
Top Fleet Employers recognizes any fleets which meet standards of excellence in Human Resources. It is not a competition. There is no limit to the number or size of fleets which can be honoured.
