Transportation Insight is Among Best Employers in North Carolina
Employee Surveys Drive Enterprise Logistics Provider’s Recognition as Top Workplace
HICKORY, NC (May 31, 2019) – Transportation Insight, a North American leader in Enterprise Logistics, is one of the Best Employers in North Carolina. The transportation management strategist received the recognition from Business North Carolina based on companywide surveys that gauged Transportation Insight employees’ perspectives on dozens of topics from recruiting practices and recognition programs to facilities and benefits.
“Transportation Insight set out 20 years ago to become the largest, most highly respected Enterprise Logistics provider in North America. Integral to that goal is our commitment to creating a unique environment that positions our organization to be the preferred place to work in Hickory,” says Transportation Insight Founder and Chairman Paul Thompson. “We are honored to be named a Best Employer in North Carolina, especially because it directly reflects our associates’ opinions on the overall workplace environment we have worked hard to establish.”
Transportation Insight is highlighted as a 2019 Best Employer among North Carolina’s largest companies employing 250 people or more. With 500 associates nationwide, including more than 340 based in North Carolina, the multi-modal logistics provider’s service to more than 1,500 retail, manufacturing and distribution clients relies on a solutions portfolio anchored by technology and human capital.
“Our long-term strategy of investing in best-in-class technology and building the strongest intellectual capital base in the logistics industry empowers our associates to make a difference in our clients’ businesses every day,” says Transportation Insight CEO Rennie Faulkner. “Our people are the foundation of our success, and this recognition validates our efforts to create a culture and environment that make Transportation Insight an exciting and rewarding place to work. Our associates want to be part of a winning team, they enjoy learning and growing together, and they love helping our clients succeed. This commitment and attitude are the fuel for Transportation Insight’s ability to deliver exceptional service and value to our client partners.”
Transportation Insight’s Best Employer recognition from Business North Carolina and the Best Companies Group reflects the company’s rich offering of associate benefits, including medical insurance, 401(k) plan with company match, paid days off and tuition assistance. The company’s 11-acre campus near downtown Hickory, anchored by the renovated National Historic Landmark Lyerly Full Fashion Hosiery Mill, includes an on-campus cafeteria and fitness facilities featuring regulation basketball/volleyball courts, weight and cardio training, a regular schedule of exercise classes and competitive inter-company sports leagues. The organization’s core values and corporate culture further re-enforce Transportation Insight’s mission to establish a work environment that is rich in character, passion, collaboration and community service.
“Benefits and workplace amenities are important, but today’s multi-generational workforce also seeks opportunities to work hard, improve their skills, advance their careers and achieve the sense of satisfaction that comes with setting aggressive goals and then achieving them,” says Transportation Insight Vice President of Organizational Development Josh Walker. “With a focus on improving the business performance of our clients and the career portfolio of our associates, Transportation Insight works to create a meaningful workplace experience that provides financial and personal rewards.”
Transportation Insight career opportunities target a broad spectrum of experience, from recent college graduates and mid-career transportation industry specialists to executive-level leaders. Ranked by the Grant Thornton North Carolina 100 as the state’s second-largest privately held company in 2018, Transportation Insight continues an aggressive growth trajectory that has expanded its footprint from a handful of offices in Hickory to seven operating centers and dozens of client support offices throughout North America.
