POLARIS RECEIVES THE 2022 ACHIEVEMENT OF EXCELLENCE FOR WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACEOctober 14, 2022
While attending the annual Trucking HR Canada Gala to accept our Top Fleet Employer Award, we were ecstatic to learn that Polaris was also selected for the prestigious Achievement of Excellence for Women in the Workplace!
Every year, Trucking HR Canada recognizes one Top Fleet Employer who demonstrates exceptional commitment to gender equality and female representation in our industry. Polaris Chief Human Resources Officer, Laura Muir, shares, “From hiring and onboarding to staff support programs and ongoing training, mentorships and more, Polaris has fostered a culture where women can thrive and advance.”
Since our beginnings under the leadership of Founder Geri Cox, Polaris has offered an environment that welcomes and encourages women to pursue careers in transportation. Geri has served as a prominent role model in a historically male-dominated field, opening doors for those with limited access to fulfilling opportunities. Today, more than 50% of our management team is represented by women.
Polaris President & CEO, Dave Cox comments, “At Polaris, we celebrate every employee’s unique strengths. We greatly value Geri and all the women on our team who continue to make a significant impact on our company’s growth and future!”
2022 marked Polaris’ 5th consecutive year as a Top Fleet Employer, designating us as Top Fleet Employers of Distinction. Dave Cox adds, “The Achievement of Excellence for Women in the Workplace from Trucking HR Canada further highlights all that we’ve accomplished in creating a space where employees of all genders and backgrounds are supported and excited to work together. Thank you to our entire Polaris family for helping us earn this high honour!
