Trucking HR Canada Accepting Nominations For Top Fleet Employers Program

OTTAWA, ON --  Applications are 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.
The program recognizes any fleet which meets certain standards of excellence in human resources. There is no limit to the number or size of fleets which can be honoured.
Top Fleet Employers recognizes 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.
Online submissions are being accepted on the Trucking HR Canada website until February 29, 2016. 
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 reflects 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.
Twenty-two fleets were recognized in the 2nd annual program in 2015. Click here to download last year’s best practices report “The Drive to Excellence."
