NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, was recently recognized as a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation by Redefining the Road magazine and the Women in Trucking Association. The Redefining the Road editorial staff received more than 150 nominations with over 10,000 votes cast to identify the top companies named to the list.
With more than 11,300 employees throughout North America, NFI works to ensure women are appropriately represented in leadership and employee development opportunities. NFI has implemented various initiatives to support and increase diversity within the transportation industry across corporate, driver, and distribution roles, as well as executive leadership. For example, with over 2,700 company drivers operating its dedicated fleet, NFI’s “She Drives” initiative surveyed female NFI drivers, in which they shared their stories and highlighted why they believe NFI is a great place to work for women. Since the launch of the initiative, which recognized and acknowledged the barriers that exist for women, the company has continued to increase its female driver population.
“NFI remains committed to driving gender diversity and female representation within the transportation industry,” said Sid Brown, CEO of NFI. “Our core values of family, integrity, safety, and teamwork have made NFI a top place to work for employees from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders. We look forward to continuing to develop and invest in new strategies to further diversify and bring new perspectives to our company.”
