National Shunt Services Receives Top Fleet Employers Award for 2017

VAUGHAN, ONTARIO – 10-14-2017 (Press Release Jet) — On October 12, 2017, National Shunt Services Limited (NSSL) was presented the Top Fleet Employer Award for 2017 by Trucking HR Canada, a human resources leader in the Canadian trucking industry. The Top Fleet Employers award was created in 2014, to honor outstanding employers in the Canadian trucking industry. 

This award recognizes fleets that offer the best workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry, as reflected in the broad range of human resources policies and programs they have in place. A panel of trucking industry experts evaluated fleets of every size and rated them on a variety of criteria including recruitment and retention practices, workplace culture, compensation, training and skills development and innovative human resources practices.

National Shunt was presented with the award at the gala awards dinner at the Palais Royale in Toronto, Ontario. They were honored as one of the 48 best workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry, and featured in the category for private fleets among five other companies.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
