Glassdoor Names TQL One of Nation's Best Places to Work
Cincinnati, OH – Total Quality Logistics’ workplace full of positive energy and passionate professionals earned the company recognition from one of the nation’s most familiar job marketplaces. Glassdoor named TQL one of the nation’s best places to work, presenting the company with a 2016 Employee’s Choice Award this morning.
“We pride ourselves on our culture and the unique aspects of life at TQL,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne. “This is a challenging industry, so it’s satisfying to know we are on the right track in terms of providing an environment and perks our employees enjoy.”
Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards program is in its eighth year and winners are chosen based entirely on employee feedback shared year-round on Glassdoor.
“Everyone wants a job and company they love,” said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. “Programs like the Employees’ Choice Awards allow us to honor employers that stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”
TQL is a transportation logistics provider that helps get products from point A to point B throughout North America. The company connects customers needing to move truckload freight shipments with carriers that have the capacity to move them. Roughly three quarters of all goods in the country are touched by the truckload freight industry.
Some of the unique benefits TQL offers its employees include an unlimited compensation structure, patio parties, signature TQL events like Pancakes with Santa for employees and their families, and an energetic charitable-giving program. Among its many successes in 2015, TQL hosted a company and community pushup competition to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD® while raising money for American troops.
“More than 90 percent of our management team has been promoted from within, so our leaders know first-hand the hard work that goes into this this job,” Byrne said. “Recognizing, appreciating and rewarding that hard work is central to the culture here.”
