DETROIT, Mich. — The Detroit Free Press announced its annual Michigan Top Workplaces list for 2022 on November 20th. Fifth Wheel Freight (FWF) was honored on the list for a third year for its innovative, culture-focused workplace.
Ashley Sanders, HR & Payroll Manager at FWF says, “Our focus at FWF has always been to develop our team members and create opportunities for them to learn and grow, both personally and professionally. Initiatives such as our DE&I program provides team members space to gain an understanding of the people and community around them. Our advanced training and paid time off structure allow team members to put their knowledge to practice inside and outside of FWF.”
The Top Workplaces award is centered around employee feedback and recognizes organizations that consistently embody characteristics, including confidence in leadership, employee engagement, work flexibility, and benefits.
As a company, FWF is committed to cultivating an inclusive culture. In congruence with the DE&I initiatives, FWF focuses on developing each individual’s skillsets to enable personal and professional growth while providing opportunities to engage in culture-focused events and community impact initiatives. FWF believes in making team members feel valued and trusted in the workplace by providing opportunities to engage in meaningful initiatives.
“Cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company culture is a commitment and evolving mission of ours,” says COO Josh Brawley of FWF. “Being named a Top Workplace honors our team and the foundation we continue to build upon together.”
The Free Press partners with Philadelphia-based Energage, an employee research and culture technology firm, to determine this year’s Top Workplaces in Michigan. The rankings are based solely on employee survey feedback that is then analyzed based on Energage’s objective criteria. Top Workplaces requires companies to achieve a minimum response rate to be considered for the award and are grouped based on the size of the organization.
