Deadline to Apply to Top Fleet Employers Program Approaching

OTTAWA, ON -- The deadline to apply for a spot in Trucking HR Canada’s fourth annual list of Top Fleet Employers is fast approaching


Online submissions will be accepted at until 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. The program recognizes fleets that offer the top workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry. Click here to apply to the 2017 program.


Top Fleet Employers 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.


The program 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.


The 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.


Thirty-nine fleets were recognized in the third annual program.
