Retaining and elevating our workforce

Creating a workplace where associates have opportunities for advancement and to enhance their professional skills is key to our commitment to offer career growth and a culture of respect.  


We support educational and career-building opportunities by offering training, career mobility, informal mentoring and succession planning to realize the potential of all associates. 

A culture of inclusion

We are committed to fostering an inclusive workplace culture and incorporating a diversity competency component into the selection of and performance management process for our leaders and associates. We strive to create a culture that supports and enables the needs of our diverse associates.  

  • We have a variety of Business Resource Groups (BRGs), such as the Women’s Network, Young Professionals Network and LGBTQIA+ Alliance, which provide a sense of community and spaces for our associates to network.

  • We partner with Women in Trucking (WIT), a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage the employment of and minimize obstacles faced by women in the trucking industry.
  • All Schneider leaders completed unconscious bias training in 2022 and all remaining associates will complete the training in 2023.
  • We established Cultural Connections, an internal group committed to educating ourselves and coworkers on topics that pertain to who we are — inclusive of thought, race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, experience, ability and background.
