What makes a company desirable for women to work? Many say it comes from such primary reasons as a corporate culture that’s supportive of gender diversity, flexibility in hours and work requirements to accommodate family and life balance, competitive compensation and benefits, training and continued professional development, and career advancement opportunities.
If your organization is one that features these benefits (or more), then it could be an ideal nominee for “Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation.” This is the third year this program will be featured in Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association, with the goal to highlight companies in the industry that are friendly for women in BOTH driver and professional capacities.
