Total Quality Logistics Named A Best Place To Work In Dayton, Ohio
Cincinnati – Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of the Business Courier’s 2012 Healthiest Employers of Greater Cincinnati.
“This is a company where strong, success-oriented people thrive,” said TQL Executive Vice President, Kerry Byrne. “Our employees are extremely self-motivated to reach their goals. We support them through programs that promote the adoption of healthy habits for the long-term.”
Components of TQL’s wellness program include an annual company-wide health assessment, weight loss and healthy eating competitions, and after-hours events that encourage physical activity, including 3 on 3 basketball tournaments, golf outings, and the TQL Running Club. TQL also sponsors numerous local races in the communities in which it operates. In Cincinnati, TQL-sponsored events include the Forest Hills 5K, which will be held on May 19, and Loveland’s Amazing Race, which will be held June 16.
Judging by recent employee accomplishments, the emphasis on wellness is resonating with employees and their families. At this year’s 35th Annual Heart Mini Marathon, the company sent more than 200 employees, friends, and family members who raised more than $13,000 on behalf of the American Heart Association. This year’s Biggest Loser-inspired competition featured 86 teams of two who collectively lost more than 1,200 pounds.
“Individually each of our employees is strong, but together we are unstoppable. Our wellness programs, just like everything else at TQL, focus on this core belief,” said Byrne.
