The FMCSA ELD Mandate goes into effect on December 18, 2017. Is your fleet compliant? The new Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulation comes with a long list of requirements necessary for carriers and drivers to meet. At Ryder, we want to ensure you have the tools you, your drivers, and fleet need to keep your business moving.
Veteran Buddy Program
In 2015, we launched our Veteran Buddy Program that pairs Ryder employees who are military veterans with new veteran employees. The program is designed to help ease the transition from military to civilian life, which can be a major challenge for recently separated veterans returning to the workforce.
This new program takes these efforts a step further once the recruiting process is completed. Veteran new hires are assigned a Ryder military veteran “buddy” who will be available to help them assimilate to their new work environment. We have found that simple gestures such as showing a new veteran around the office or shop and being available to answer questions can help the new veteran employee settle into his/her new environment with ease. Ryder currently has more than 2,700 veteran employees in the U.S. Among those, 400 have been selected to participate in the program at Ryder locations.
