JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saia, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) announced that Saia LTL Freight has been named one of Women In Trucking’s (WIT) “2022 Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation.” The announcement was made in Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the association.
“We’re very excited to once again be honored with this award as we recognize how important women are to our success as a company, and to the transportation industry as a whole,” stated President and CEO Fritz Holzgrefe. “We appreciate the unique experiences, skills, and knowledge women bring to their roles, whether it’s in an office setting or in the drivers’ seat.”
According to Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO, the award was created in 2018 to support an element of their mission, “to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry.” Several factors distinguish companies, like Saia, being recognized by WIT including a work culture that promotes gender diversity, competitive compensation and benefits packages, flexible hours and work requirements, and professional development and career advancement opportunities.
“Now more than ever, the transportation industry is vital to driving our nation’s economy,” explained Holzgrefe. “Companies that provide inclusive, gender-diverse job opportunities position themselves for greater growth and success for all employees as well as customers and shareholders.”
WIT stated a record number of votes were cast to identify and validate the final companies named to the 2022 list, which is the fifth year for the award program. Recipients will be recognized later this month at the upcoming WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo in Dallas, Texas.
