Nov 17, 2020Awards, Idealease, Mentions, News, Trucking

Cumberland has been named a “Top Company For Women to Work For in Transportation.”

We were featured in this year’s Women in Trucking Association Accelerate Conference held on November 12 and 13, 2020 and will be featured in WIT’s magazine, Redefining The Road.

The industry voted for the top companies that embody important attributes required to be a “Top Company for Women to Work For in Transportation.” 


Cumberland’s Culture

Cumberland International Trucks is a family owned company that focuses on maintaining a positive and healthy company culture and ensure a safe work environment for women. We promote diversity, teamwork, work/life balance and currently have multiple female directors, managers and supervisors.

We are committed to continuous growth and offer career development opportunities (through a leadership program and community involvement), networking and continued education for women. We also support local charities, like End Slavery Tennessee, that directly benefit women in our wider community.

In this video, WIT President, Ellen Voie speaks about what women WANT out of their work environment – “a place where they feel like they are making a difference, where the culture is team oriented, collaborative, like someone has their back, like they can talk to their boss, raise their hand and lean in.” 

As the marketing director, I’ve found myself in many marketing roles where the company I’ve worked for has wanted to use the phrase We’re Like Family in recruiting materials.  I, personally, have never felt that statement to be more true than at Cumberland.  There are two things I routinely say to people about working here – First is that if I ever had a true emergency, the first people I would call are coworkers. The second thing I tell them is that I’ve never worked for another company where employees who have left, HAVE COME BACK to work for us. Routinely. I once heard from one of the returning employees who said, “Over there, I was just a number – Here they really give a [crap].” He used more colorful language.

I think I can speak for many of my coworkers when I say I am proud to work for a company that strives for this type of culture. Our executive team reviews our employee benefits every year to make sure we are competitive in the market and making the best decisions for our employees, their families and the company.  Managers routinely review and discuss employee development and are mindful about growing employees’ careers and opportunities. We highlight employee achievements with awards and recognition and give credit where credit is due.

And true to Elle Voie’s comments – we KNOW we are making a difference for our customers and for our community. We KNOW our coworkers and managers have our backs.  And we KNOW we can lean in. From the top down, our environment is built around teamwork, with a foundation of Core Values that promote Honor, Readiness, Victory and Loyalty amongst coworkers and with our customer base.
