Choptank Transport, a third-party logistics provider headquartered in Preston MD, is the recipient of the Optimas Silver Training Award announced by Workforce Magazine, a publication for business, strategy and management of today’s labor force.
“For over the 27 years we’ve seen companies place increasing importance on human resources initiatives, realizing the potential a strong HR department can have on business growth,” said Rick Bell, editorial director of Workforce.
“We are excited to be recognized for such an essential part of our business. We’ve put a lot of effort into creating an optimum training program over the last several years,” said Paul Wood, director of process improvement. “The company has moved from a one-size-fits-all mentality to a more customized, Choptank-specific platform. Not only has this change been helpful to our newcomers, but it has offered continual learning opportunities for seasoned employees as well.”
Choptank’s mission for training is to offer continual learning programs so that employees feel confident in their positions, and eventually become mentors for new staff. The vision for the program is to become a top training facility within the transportation industry for its employees.
