November 7, 2023
BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 7, 2023 – PacLease, a leading full-service lease and rental company, was recently honored as a 2023 “Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation” by the Women in Trucking Association (WIT).
This special award recognizes leading companies in the transportation industry that possess a corporate culture that supports gender diversity; provides flexibility, offers competitive compensation and quality benefits, including training, continuing education and development; and fosters career advancement opportunities. The annual award program was created in 2018 to support an element of WIT’s mission: to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry.
“At PacLease, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive environment that ensures all of our valued employees have access to the support, career tools and benefits they need,” said Ken Roemer, president of PACCAR Leasing. “It’s an honor to be recognized by Women in Trucking as a top workplace for women in the transportation industry. This year, more than 27,000 votes were cast to identify and validate the final companies named to the list, and PacLease was among the highest vote-getters, which put us in the ‘Elite 30’ category for companies receiving the award. That acknowledgement is truly special and a testament to the culture we have here at PacLease.”
Women in Trucking Association is a nonprofit association established to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry. Membership is not limited to women, as 17 percent of its members are men who support the mission. For more information, visit www.womenintrucking.org.
