McDonough, GA. – March 24, 2014 – Bennett International Group LLC, a global logistics and transportation company, is pleased to announce it has been selected as one of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top 100 Workplaces in Atlanta in 2014. This is the third consecutive year Bennett has ranked among the top 100 workplaces in metro Atlanta, and the recognition comes as Bennett celebrates its 40th year in business.
Beginning in 1974 as a small intrastate carrier with 15 trucks and two contracts, Bennett has grown into an international company with seven subsidiaries, offices located on five continents, and a network of more than 3,000 agents, employees, and contractors worldwide that offers a comprehensive suite of specialized logistics services.
In addition to providing quality service to its customers, the leadership at Bennett fosters a family culture for its employees through a list of core values that includes respect, integrity, spiritual commitment, learning and development, and more. Leadership also encourages community involvement and many employees support local, nonprofit organizations volunteering their time and resources.
“We are very proud to be chosen as one of the AJC’s Top 100 Workplaces in Atlanta for the third consecutive year,” Marcia Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Bennett said. “Our employees are our biggest asset, and we truly care for them and their well-being. We strive to provide an environment that encourages our employees to share their ideas and talents, and we value their feedback. I’d like to thank our Bennett Family for their dedication and service.”
