TORONTO, ON — Trucking HR Canada has announced that Canada Cartage has been selected as one of the country’s Top Fleet Employers. The award honours the best workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry.
Fleets of every size were rated on topics including employee recognition, compensation, lifestyle, employee engagement, wellness, professional development, recruitment and retention. The award was evaluated based on a comprehensive application process, driver and staff surveys, and follow-up interviews.
“These fleets demonstrate a commitment to effective human resources approaches, and all have best practices to share” says Angela Splinter, chief executive officer of Trucking HR Canada. “They are leading by example, and we commend them for their leadership in demonstrating that the trucking industry offers great places to work”.
Jeff Lindsay, President and CEO of Canada Cartage, commented that “we are pleased and proud to receive the Top Fleet Employer award. This recognition supports our continued commitment to build and maintain the best work environment we possibly can.”
Brad Gehring, Vice President, Human Resources added that, “this accomplishment would not be possible without a strong HR and Operations team across the country, implementing industry best practices, and listening to our employees input and feedback. We want to continue to work towards being the best employer we can be, and ensure that we are a leader in the industry.”
The Top Fleet Employers’ selection criteria reflects Canadian human resources issues, trends and working environments, and has been validated by a panel of trucking industry experts and a Certified Human Resource Leader (CHRL). It also echoes Trucking HR Canada’s standards of excellence and considers every position in a fleet.
