JX Enterprises Named a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation
For the fifth consecutive year, JX Enterprises is ranked among the top transportation companies for women to work for by Redefining the Road magazine which is published by the Women In Trucking Association, a leading organization promoting the role of women in the industry.
“We are again honored to receive the prestigious Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation award,” said Eva Osowski, Director of Human Resources, JX Enterprises. “It’s gratifying to be acknowledged for our continuing efforts to create a welcoming workplace for women and provide opportunities for them to succeed at JX Enterprises and the industry in general.”
Criteria considered for the award, according to the Women In Trucking Association, include corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; professional development initiatives; and career advancement opportunities.
JXE has received the award since its inception in 2018.
“Throughout our more than 52-year history, our company has always put into practice our values toward supporting workplace diversity, equity and inclusion. For us, it isn’t a new way of thinking about our organization’s culture, it’s what we’ve always done,” Osowski said. “In tandem with that mindset is our focus on continuous improvement throughout all areas of our business. We encourage new ideas and fresh perspectives. DE&I is a key way to achieve many of our goals.”
Additionally, Osowski said, a workplace that reflects the diversity of our customers results in greater satisfaction and a fuller experience.
Among the recent JX workplace initiatives is the new Women of JX group, which had nearly 100 female participants in its inaugural meeting. Osowski said Women of JX was created to support, grow and empower women within the company through personal and professional development in a peer-to-peer environment.
“JX is proud and fortunate to have considerable female representation throughout all areas of our operations, including leadership positions,” said Osowski. “We don’t consider any position to be gender-specific. We always look at who is the right person for the job, and give that person the tools, opportunities and support they need to excel.”
