The Top Fleet Employers program is a national program that recognizes the importance of having sound HR policies and practices in the trucking and logistics industry. Top Fleet Employers is not a competition — it’s a recognition of meeting HR standards of excellence.
The Top Fleet Employers program is open to fleets of every size and type. A panel of trucking and logistics industry experts and a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) validated the Top Fleet Employer Program’s rating criteria. The rating criteria reflect Canadian human resources issues, trends and working environments, and Trucking HR Canada’s standards of excellence.
The criteria consider every position in a fleet. They also take into account special considerations affecting different types of fleets. For example, the criteria applied to for-hire fleets are firmly rooted in the core values of the Canadian Trucking Alliance’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Driver Shortage. The criteria and evaluation of private fleets and fleet services account for their unique working environments and requirements within the overarching critera of the program.
Fleet employers apply and participate in a rigorous three-part review of their human resources policies and programs. The review includes the completion of a pre-application, a comprehensive online submission (which may or may not include follow up discussions with the company) and a Trucking HR Canada survey of the company’s employees. The review assesses the scope of an employer’s formal HR policies and programs in four key categories: Basics, Respect, Training and Family.
