The Erb Group Earns Women In Trucking Award

The Erb Group of Companies Named 2022 Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation

New Hamburg, ON, November 3, 2022 – The Erb Group of Companies has been recognized as a 2022 “Top Company for Women to Work For in Transportation” by Redefining the Road, the official magazine of Women In Trucking (WIT). The organization’s mission is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize the obstacles they face.

There are a number of characteristics that distinguish companies recognized on this list, according to Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director of Redefining the Road magazine. These characteristics include corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.

Identifying the companies on this list involves a two-step process, said Everett. First, nominations of the companies are received and carefully reviewed to ensure they qualify by meeting a minimum threshold of qualifications. Then the final ballot of companies is voted on by individuals in the industry. This is the fifth year of this prestigious recognition program and it garnered more than 22,000 votes to identify the final companies named to the list. The momentum of this program has continued to accelerate since it was first launched in 2018.

« Les femmes compétentes et talentueuses ne cessent de gravir les échelons dans le secteur du transport. C’est pourquoi nous sommes ravis de mettre en vedette les entreprises qui déploient des efforts stratégiques dans le but d’attirer et de retenir une main-d’œuvre féminine », explique Everett. « Ces entreprises méritent ce titre en raison de leurs grands efforts. »

This year, the list is comprised of a diverse range of business sectors in the commercial freight transportation marketplace, including motor carriers, third-party logistics companies, and original equipment manufacturers. These companies will be recognized at the upcoming WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo Nov. 13-16 in Dallas. Navistar is the sponsor of this year’s program.
