Werner Enterprises Recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer

Werner Enterprises was named this week by GI Jobs® magazine as a “Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer for 2016” and a “Top 50 Military Spouse Employer for 2016.”

This is the tenth time Werner has been named as a Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer and the second time as a Top 50 Military Spouse Employer. The magazine ranks companies on the strength of their military recruiting efforts, percentage of new hires with prior active military service and policies toward National Guard and Reserve services.

“We owe our military veterans a huge debt of gratitude for the sacrifices they make while serving our country,” President and COO Derek Leathers said. “With that in mind, it has become our mission to create the best opportunities available for veterans and their families as they return to civilian life and transition to new careers.”

Werner widely has been acknowledged for its efforts to ease the transition of military veterans into the workplace, including its Professional Truck Driver Apprenticeship that allows veterans to use their benefits to pay for training while receiving on-the-job instruction.

Werner has hired more than 6,500 veterans since 2012 and more than 350 veteran spouses since May 2013, surpassing the pledge it made in 2012 under the White House campaign Joining Forces to hire 1,000 veterans per year for the next five years. Werner has pledged to hire 2,200 veterans and 200 veteran spouses in 2015.

Werner Enterprises to Host Driver Appreciation Week

Werner Enterprises will host a weeklong celebration to coincide with National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Sept. 13-19 that will include events at both its global headquarters and locations throughout the country. The company will devote the week to honoring the dedication and service of the more than 3 million professional drivers who deliver freight safely and efficiently throughout the nation.

“This week is really about putting the exclamation point on what we try to do throughout the year,” said Derek Leathers, president and COO. “It’s important to celebrate and highlight the crucial role these men and women play in our daily lives.”

In addition to serving meals and providing gifts at all of its terminal locations and various Dedicated sites, Werner will host a driver recognition ceremony Friday, Sept. 18, in Omaha to honor the most recent drivers to achieve 2 million accident-free miles. The ceremony will be followed by a live remote broadcast of the SiriusXM Radio show “Road Dog Trucking News.”

2015 CVSA Brake Safety Week – Sept. 6 – 12

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA’s) 2015 Brake Safety Week starts Sept. 6. Will you pass the inspection?

It especially is critical that you start your day with a thorough pre-trip inspection. Here are the major areas you should check:

• Airlines – Check for abrasions, bulges, cuts or leaks.
• Drums and Linings – Inspect for grease and oil, and make sure linings don’t have cracks and are at least a quarter of an inch thick.
• Clamps and Mountings – Confirm they are secure and tight.
• Slack Adjusters – Check that they are secured and undamaged.
• ABS Light – Make sure the ABS light is on when you turn on the truck and then turns off. If it stays on, there is a fault in the system.

In addition to inspecting your brakes, officers also will be looking at your paperwork and permits. Be sure your CDL and medical certificate are up-to-date and your BOL’s and permits are within reach.

Jeff Wessinger – 2 Million Accident-Free Miles

Professional driver Jeff Wessinger’s nickname might be Wild Man, but his 2 million mile accident-free award, presented to him at the June 9 Second Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony, is evidence of quite the opposite.

Wessinger, a Werner driver since 2000, achieved his safety milestone about as quickly as it can be done, but he doesn’t let his success go to his head.

“I’ve got 2 million miles behind me, and the only one that matters is the next one,” he said.

As for advice for other drivers, Wessinger offered this: “Beware of vehicles with many dents, especially the ones with hanging side mirrors.”

A native of Swansea, South Carolina, Wessinger likes to spend time relaxing on his front porch with his wife and their five Chihuahuas, two bourgeois, one macaw and one parrot.
