Averitt’s “Over 20 Team” continues to grow
According to research by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, career longevity is not as common as it used to be. Many workers end up doing what’s called “professional pivoting.” A study by the bureau says that the average amount of time someone stays with their current employer is 4.2 years. In the trucking industry, where the grass often seems greener elsewhere and companies have trouble building value with their staff, our industry turnover rate is significant - about 70% on average in 2020. At Averitt Express, we’ve made it our mission to defy the odds and build one of the best trucking companies around. We’re proud to have created a place where people not only want to work, but they continually choose to build long-term careers they can be proud of. Our “Over 20 Team” is significant and growing despite all the challenges that have faced our industry over the last couple of years.
