TQL Earns Best Workplaces for Millennials Honor for Seventh Time


Cincinnati, Ohio (July 18, 2022) — Total Quality Logistics (“TQL”) the second-largest freight brokerage firm in North America, has been recognized by Great Place to Work® and Fortune as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces for Millennials. TQL is the only transportation company on the list, placing 59 of 100 in its seventh year of earning the prestigious ranking.

Millennials are grouped as those born between 1980 and 1995. More than 5,550 millennials, or 52.1% of all employees, form TQL’s workforce.

Great Place to Work measured the differences in over 413,000 millennials’ survey responses to those of other generations taken from America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study of over 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies that represent more than 6.1 million U.S. employees. In that survey, 91% of TQL’s employees said TQL is a great place to work. This number is 57% higher than the average U.S. company.

“We’re honored to receive this acknowledgement,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL President. “In 25 years, we have cultivated a culture that appeals to all generations because it rewards hard work. As it relates to millennials, there are not a lot of places younger people can have the kind of autonomy, financial security and leadership opportunities we provide so early in their careers. We are proud that our dedicated employees have made us part of this list a seventh time.”

The Best Workplaces for Millennials list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“These companies value their millennial workers by showing genuine care, flexibility and purpose in ways that matter to this generation,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “They expect company values to be lived by their leaders, which in turn elicits their loyalty and trust. Congratulations to the Best Workplaces for Millennials for their hard work.” 

TQL has won more than 600 lifetime workplace and industry awards including Best Workplaces for Millennials (2015-19, 2021 and 2022), Fortune 100 Best companies to Work For (2019, 2020), Inc. Best Workplaces (2019) and Forbes Best Employers in the United States (2022).
