Nation’s Largest Truckload Provider Continues to Tap into Mature Workforce to Address Driver Shortage
GREEN BAY, Wis., and PHILADELPHIA — The International Association of Jewish Vocational Services (www.iajvs.org), a not-for-profit association linking health and human service agencies to provide educational, vocational and rehabilitation services, and Schneider National, Inc., a leading provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services, today announced a North American program to promote and enhance training and employment opportunities for mature workers in the communities they jointly serve.
This new initiative intends to match job seekers at IAJVS member agencies with job openings at Schneider regional operations throughout the United States and Canada. The two organizations will inform their local and regional agencies about this workforce development effort and explore employment opportunities for mature workers. This collaboration will strive to make the best use of each organization’s experience, flexibility and record of success in placing mature workers on career paths.
“Working with the IAJVS is one more way that we’re reaching out to the mature workforce and making them aware of the rewarding, good paying career opportunities that await them at Schneider,” said Rob Reich, vice president of enterprise recruiting for Schneider National. “Whether on the road as professional truck drivers, in our shops as mechanics, or in our office locations as an IT, finance, sales or customer service associate, the possibilities abound.”
In November of 2005, Schneider National was named an AARP Featured Employer in recognition of its efforts to successfully recruit, hire and retain mature workers. To date, the AARP has only recognized 24 Featured Employers. Schneider National is the only truckload carrier to be named as such.
Schneider National and IAJVS are responding to the dramatic demographic shift in the workforce and are committed to enhancing employment opportunities for the mature workforce. “IAJVS is so excited to be working with Schneider National, Inc.,” said Genie Cohen, executive director of IAJVS. “We look forward to creating new opportunities for mature workers.”
