Last year, The Shippers Group held a Pet Contest for National Pet Day. In the midst of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, it was a fun way to bring good cheer to our essential and hardworking team. Little did we know how much of a hit it would be, so we decided to bring it back this year and make it an annual contest for our associates!
In the fight to break hunger, food banks play a key role by securing billions of pounds of food each year and distributing it to millions of people in need. Unfortunately, the food insecurity dilemma has been worsened by COVID-19 this year, so the need to provide these families with relief has never been more pressing.
Each year, The Shippers Group holds its annual food drive to help provide much needed food to our local communities. Our wonderful and gracious associates went above and beyond this year and donated several hundred pounds of non-perishable items to their local food banks, with some sites even filling their car to the brim with donations!
On Sunday, September 27th, Peter Sexton out of our Jonesboro, GA location will be riding solo in The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.
In 2017 we set out to establish a recognition program to showcase our standout performers. What we found is that we are a company with an abundance of Star Players!
Since we began this program, we have received hundreds of nominations, but only 12 per region are selected. I want to personally thank all nominees and our winners in 2019.
Your stand apart leadership, hard work, lead by example, safe work habits and many more attributes brought you to this elite Circle of Excellence.
– Rob Doyle, President
Each month, The Shippers Group chooses one outstanding individual from each region to be selected as our Associate of the Month. These individuals are nominated by their coworkers, who see them go above and beyond every day. In addition to the title, the winners receive: a Certificate and Award Guide, 8 hours of PTO, custom TSG shirt, a banner display, and a luncheon for their location to celebrate the event.
We would like to congratulate all the Associates of the Month for 2019:
