Pilot Freight Services Enhances Employee-Focused Programs
GLEN MILLS, PA – July 08, 2021 – https://www.pilotdelivers.com/ (Pilot), a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services backed by ATL Partners and British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI), is rolling out new employee benefits as part of its Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) program, anniversary of 143 celebratory employee milestones ranging from 5 years to 35 years, and with an intent to fill 150 new positions at stations across the country.
Pilot’s established strong connections to community provided inspiration for the expansion of employee benefits, which will match service hours with hours of paid volunteer time off (VTO) for team members who engage with local 501c3 charities. Moreover, Pilot will match donations to 501c3 organizations and will double the match if the employee volunteers and donates to the same organization. Pilot continues to invest in employees with professional development and training opportunities. In the spring, the company conducted a ten-week training program through a series of live and recorded 30-minute sessions to help drivers, dispatch and warehouse employees understand the critically important roles they play in the customer experience as brand ambassadors during the delivery process. Most recently, Pilot launched a leadership development program to help prepare a select group of exemplary Pilot employees for the next phase of management within the company.
On June 22, 2021, Pilot celebrated milestone anniversaries of over 143 employees across the country who have been with the company for over five years. The celebrations took place with a mix of virtual and in-person ceremonies depending on location. This annual recognition program is a testament to the logistics company’s deep bench of talent and industry expertise gained through years of client-focused transportation and logistics solutions.
As shipping volumes remain at peak season levels, Pilot is looking to hire about 150 new employees nationwide at stations across the country, including Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Las Vegas and Philadelphia, with opportunities ranging from sales to operations and warehouse agents to accounting and customer service positions.
“Pilot’s success is firmly grounded in the strength and expertise of our team members, from developing customer-focused logistics solutions to delivering products in a friendly and safe manner,” says Lisa Coyle, Chief Administrative Officer. “We celebrate the successes of Pilot’s employees, offer opportunities to participate in community-based initiatives and professional development and now we are looking to expand our team in a variety of positions across the country.”
