MCDONOUGH, GEORGIA (October 30, 2023) – The Women in Trucking Association (WIT) announced that the Bennett Family of Companies has been recognized as a Top Transportation Company for Women to Work For by Redefining the Road magazine.
There are several characteristics that distinguish companies recognized on this list, according to Brian Everett, publisher of Redefining the Road. These characteristics include corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.
“As women rise through the ranks in the transportation industry, we are excited to feature the companies that make the extra effort to attract and retain a more gender-diverse workforce,” said Jennifer Hedrick, President and CEO of WIT. “We applaud their efforts, and this distinction is our way of giving them the recognition they deserve.”
“We are proud of the women who work at Bennett. They are an integral part of our workforce, our vision and our future. This award will help tell our prospective female drivers and employees that we value their contributions in our company. We are thankful to be recognized for the fourth year by Women in Trucking as a ‘Top Transportation Company for Women to Work For.’ This is a wonderful organization that advocates for women in our industry and continues to elevate trucking and logistics as great industries for women to thrive in,” said Marcia Taylor, CEO of the Bennett Family of Companies.
