Trinity Transport recently took the top spot of “Best In The Business” in the medium business category by The News Journal. Trinity, a third-party transportation intermediary arranging freight delivery for manufacturers and distributors throughout the United States, was recognized by the Delaware publication and also received a special award for community service.
“We are thrilled!” said John S.C. Smith, human resources director for the Seafood, Del.-based company. “Everyone here works hard every day to live up to the values, beliefs and goals of the company, while also making this a unique and special place to work. Seeing that effort rewarded with the distinction of ‘Best in the Business’ means we’re succeeding in those efforts.”
“Although we’re a business and it’s important to concentrate on the bottom line and numbers, our real focus is about serving and investing in people’s lives,” says Sarah Ruffcorn, director for the Trinity Foundation, a nonprofit organization set up by team members to organize their community service.
“It’s just very refreshing to work somewhere where volunteering is encouraged and supported,” says Robin Tull, regional manager. This year, Trinity’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life team raised $17,600. And in April, the Trinity Foundation’s first gala brought in $15,000, which will go toward the youth leadership program, the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and other organizations employees want to support.
The “Best In The Business” list identifies the leading workplaces in Delaware based upon the opinions of employees. The research for this list was performed by WorkplaceDynamics LLC, an independent research company. Companies were judged based on critical workplace elements, including management, work/life balance and pay/benefits. A total of 130 companies participated in the survey, and Trinity finished ahead of 53 others in the medium company category.
