Posted by Margaret Harvey on Dec 16, 2021

With the labor shortage crisis this year, a lot of businesses have been experiencing staffing and attendance issues. Especially during the holiday season—not to mention an ongoing pandemic—it can be hard to juggle work and kids being out of school.

That is why we chose to promote and show our appreciation to our dedicated associates who show up to work each day to service our customer.

During the month of November, The Shippers Group held a raffle for two TVs and a wide range of gift cards. Associates received one raffle ticket for each week they worked their entire scheduled week without being late or leaving early. Totaling up to four possible tickets, they also had opportunities to earn extra tickets for completing tasks like submitting improvement ideas for the site.
