Alexandria, VI – Need somewhere to brag about how awesome your company is at things like ensuring safety and training for employees? Are your benefits better than your friends’? Is your pay and compensation out of this world?
Then the Truckload Carriers Association wants you to nominate your company for its Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest.
To throw your company’s name into the pot, you have to visit the Web site here between September 2 and October 31 and make your nomination.
The contest and survey is open to all for-hire trucking companies in US and Canada with 10 or more trucks. Companies do not have be a member of the TCA. Those companies nominated have to answer questions surrounding their HR best practices both online and over the phone. Once all interviews have been conducted, 20 finalists are selected as the Best Fleets to Drive For. Overall finalists and winners are chosen at the Annual TCA Convention in March in Florida.
This year, finalists will be chosen a little differently. In previous years, finalists were picked from a company-driver category and an owner/operator company. This year, one company categorized as a small company and one recognized as a large company will earn top honours.
The change is to ensure fairness for all involved said Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge (the company that conducts all surveys for the TCA) of Markham, Ont.
“Best Fleets is good for everybody the carriers, the staff, the drivers and it¹s even good for the image of trucking to show off the best of what our industry can offer,” said Deborah Sparks, v.p. of development, TCA.
