Today, Trimac has been recognized as a Top Fleet Employer by Trucking HR Canada. Top Fleet Employers are recommended as the best workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry, as reflected in the broad range of human resources policies and programs that they have in place.
“I am very proud of Trimac for receiving this designation,” said Kara Gillespie, VP of People and Culture. “This goes beyond the HR policies and programs that we have developed at Trimac, but speaks to the professionalism of the HR Team that meets the needs of our employees on a daily basis, our supportive leadership, and the culture we are building. This is another step in our transformation and evolution as a company, with more to come.”
The Top Fleet Employer Program is open to fleets of all sizes across Canada. As part of the process, Trimac participated in a rigorous three-part review of our human resources policies and programs. The review assesses the scope of an employer’s formal HR policies and programs in four key categories: Basics, Respect, Training and Family. The criteria was developed by a panel of trucking industry experts and a Certified Human Resource Professional (CHRP), and reflects Canadian human resources issues, trends and working environments.
“Top Fleet Employers are leaders in promoting a positive image of the trucking and logistics industry,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “As the competition for skilled workers continues to intensify, their consistently strong HR approaches will help position us an industry of choice.”
Trucking HR Canada will celebrate and recognize the Top Fleet Employers at its annual Gala Awards Dinner being held in October in Toronto. Awards will be presented to the Top Fleet in each category (top small, medium, large and private fleet) along with Achievement of Excellence Awards in the following categories: Workplace Culture, Training & Skills Development, Workplace Diversity, HR Innovator, Employee Engagement and the two new Achievement of Excellence Awards will also be presented for Workplace Mental Health and Women in the Workplace. The evening will cap off with the announcement of the prestigious HR Leader of the Year Award.
