Applications open for Top Fleet Employers

OTTAWA, ON — Applications are now open for Trucking HR Canada’s 4th annual Top Fleet Employers program, recognizing fleets that demonstrate commitments to human resources practices.

Applications will be accepted at until January 31, 2017.

The program is open to any fleet, and measures applicants against existing standards of excellence in human resources. There is no limit to the number or size of businesses that can be honored.

Top Fleet Employers rates workplaces on recruiting and retention initiatives, compensation, lifestyle, employee engagement and communications, health and wellness, and professional development. In addition to the online application and submitted documents, the process also involves employee surveys and follow-up interviews where required.

“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.”

Thirty-nine fleets were recognized in the 3rd annual program. To learn more about the program, visit
