OTTAWA, Ont. — Applications are now open for Trucking HR Canada’s 4th annual Top Fleet Employers program, which recognizes fleets who demonstrate a commitment to going above and beyond in their human resources practices.
Trucking HR Canada will be accepting nominations and applications at www.truckinghr.com until close of business on January 31, 2017.
The program is open to any Canadian fleet, and recognizes fleets that meet Trucking HR Canada’s standards of excellence in human resources for the trucking industry. As well, there is no limit to the number or size of fleets which can be honored. The Top Fleet Employers program rates workplaces on recruitment and retention initiatives, compensation, lifestyle, employee engagement and communications, health and wellness, and professional development. In addition to the online application and document submission, the process also involves employee surveys and follow-up interviews where required. 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,” said Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “This is becoming increasingly important for an industry looking to attract the skilled labour it needs.”
