The Erb Group Named 2023 Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation
New Hamburg, ON, November 3rd – The Erb Group has been recognized as a 2023 “Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation” by Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (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, accommodation of family and work-life balance, offering competitive compensation, benefits, and professional growth; and providing 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 industry-wide. This is the sixth year of this prestigious recognition program, and it garnered more than 27,000 votes to identify the final companies named to the list. The momentum of this program has continued to accelerate since it was first launched.
“As competent, talented women continue to rise through the ranks in the transportation industry, we are excited to feature the companies that make the strategic effort to attract and retain a more gender-diverse workforce,” said Everett. “This distinction of their impressive efforts legitimizes the recognition they deserve.”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. 5th – 8th in Dallas.
