Cookeville – Averitt Express was recently named by the Women In Trucking Association as one of its Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation. It marks the third consecutive year Averitt has been honored with the award.
According to Brian Everett, publisher of the WIT magazine Redefining the Road, companies considered for the award must have “cultures that foster gender diversity, competitive compensation and benefits, flexible hours and work requirements, professional development opportunities and career advancement opportunities.”
“We’re proud to have a culture that offers a wide variety of opportunities for women,” said Averitt President Wayne Spain. “From the dock and driver’s seat to operations and leadership, we’re committed to hiring the best associates and making Averitt a place where everyone can make their career home.”
This is the fifth year Women In Transportation has sponsored its “Top Companies” survey. The winners were identified through a two-step process, with Women In Transportation receiving nominations and carefully reviewing the qualifications, followed by a final ballot to select the winners.
