As supply chain demands impact drivers, the Wisconsin-based full-service logistics and transportation company known for treating drivers like family is redoubling its commitment to driver health, well-being, and safety.
PLYMOUTH, Wis., Feb. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Service One Transportation, Inc. a leading transportation provider, is pleased to be putting an even greater emphasis on driver health, well-being, and safety at a time when the trucking industry is at a crossroads.
Truck drivers play an important role in the supply chain, putting in long hours while dealing with difficult road conditions and the physical demands of the job. Service One Transportation understands the value of drivers and, as a result, offers a variety of health and wellness benefits to drivers.
According to Mike Myszewski, Vice President, “When I think about employee or driver wellness, in my mind, it starts with really knowing the people who are with you. That type of knowledge makes it a whole lot easier to recognize when someone may be struggling physically or mentally. One we recognize that someone with whom we work with is struggling, the goal then for us as a company is to be able to help them in the best manner possible. We take a lot of pride in the relations that forge here at Service One and it’s just not lip service when we say that we care about all our employees’ well-being.”
Promoting Physical and Mental Wellness for Truck Drivers on and off the Road
Access to Service One’s exclusive Wellness Center is one of the key benefits the company provides to its drivers. Drivers can use the Wellness Center for a variety of personal health and wellness counselling services with trained professionals, as well as smoking cessation services. Drivers are also encouraged to participate in preventive screenings for cancer, sleep apnea, and other health issues. All of this comes at no cost to the employee.
Another popular wellness initiative is the Pet program, which allows a single Dog or Cat weighing less than 85 pounds to travel with the driver. Service One Transportation recognizes the positive impact that pet companionship can have on truck drivers, providing comfort and reducing stress levels on long hauls.
Likewise, the driver bonus program is a beneficial action plan that increases overall driver satisfaction, happiness, and well-being. The quarterly driver bonus program is based on a scorecard that grades performance in eight categories. This information is tabulated and used in a formula to calculate the total bonus payment based on the miles driven in the quarter.
Prioritizing Driver Safety
In addition to driver health and well-being, Service One is committed to driver safety. As Myszewski puts it, ” Wellness and driver safety go hand in hand. Service One has built a culture of safety from the day the doors opened here and it’s something we all take extremely seriously. Our drivers understand how important it is for them to be the safest drivers on the road. Not only for their sake, but for every person they share the road with each day they are doing their job.”
In terms of safety, Service One implements video training, ensures drivers have properly maintained equipment, and invites experts to driver meetings to discuss best practices for professional truck drivers.
The future of trucking is dependent on the future of truckers, and Service One is proud to be at the forefront of ensuring drivers have access to the best health and wellness programs, safety initiatives, and top compensation to ensure a wholistic approach to driver satisfaction.
