Applications open for 3rd annual Top Fleet Employers program

Applications are now being accepted for Trucking HR Canada’s 3rd annual Top Fleet Employers program, which recognizes fleets with the top workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry.

Online submissions will be accepted at until 4 p.m. EST on Monday, February 29, 2016.

The program recognizes any fleet which meets acknowledged standards of excellence in human resources. There is no limit to the number or size of fleets which can be honoured.

Top Fleet Employers rates workplaces on employee recognition, compensation, lifestyle, employee engagement, wellness, professional development, recruitment and retention. In addition to the online application, the process involves formal documentation, employee surveys and interviews. Selection criteria reflect human resources issues, trends and working environments seen in the Canadian trucking industry, and have been validated by a panel of industry experts and a Certified Human Resources Professional.

“Top Fleet Employers recognizes trucking workplaces that embrace best practices in human resources. In addition to supporting their own recruitment, retention and marketing efforts, participating fleets are helping to raise the profile of the trucking industry as a great place to work,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada.  “This is becoming increasingly important for an industry looking to attract the skilled labour it needs.”

Twenty-two fleets were recognized in the 2nd annual program, including: Atlantica Diversified Transportation Systems Inc. (ADTS), Bison Transport, Challenger Motor Freight, DJ Knoll Transport Ltd., Drive Logistics, Edge Transportation, Erb Transport, Home Hardware Stores Limited, J&R Hall Transport, JG Drapeau Ltd., Kindersley Transport, Kriska Transportation, Liberty Linehaul Inc., Linamar Transportation Inc., Logikor, MacKinnon Transport, Meyers Transport, Ryder Canada – Supply Chain Solutions, SLH Transport, The Brick, Transpro Freight Systems, and Triton Transport.

The criteria applied to for-hire fleets is firmly rooted in the core values of Canadian Trucking Alliance’s recent Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Driver Shortage, while private fleets are scored using a system that reflects their unique working environments and requirements.
