COOKEVILLE — Averitt Express was recently named to Forbes magazine’s prestigious list of 2019 America’s Best Large Employers.
To determine the list, Forbes teamed up with independent market research company Statista to survey 50,000 Americans who are employed by businesses with a workforce of at least 1,000. All surveys were anonymous, and participants were asked how likely they would be to recommend their company to others. They were then asked to nominate companies from industries outside their own.
The final list ranked the top 500 large companies featuring more than 5,000 employees, and the top 500 mid-size companies with workforces of 1,000-5,000.
“We’re proud of our team-oriented culture and commitment to delivering outstanding service,” said Gary Sasser, Averitt’s chairman and CEO. “For nearly 48 years, that has helped us be a leader in the transportation industry. Our associates are the reason recognition like this is possible, and I’m even more excited about the future as we continue to work together to deliver innovative and creative solutions for our customers.”
