Melton follows twelve traditions to define an exceptional company culture. The eighth tradition states, “We show our appreciation for our drivers. We treat them as our guests whenever we come into contact with them. We keep in mind that their job is difficult and demanding. We treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve. We are all responsible to do what we can to make their job free of hassle and conflict.” Melton operates with the strong belief that drivers should be honored and recognized every day and, without them, success would not be possible.
“Although Melton strives each day to thank our drivers, Driver Appreciation Week served as a great opportunity to show our heartfelt gratitude towards our most valuable employees. Our company culture is largely centered around prioritizing drivers first and ensuring their hard work, dedication, and loyalty to Melton is not overlooked.” said Melton’s Chairman & CEO, Bob Peterson.
Melton’s 2017 Driver Appreciation Week was set in the theme of “Melton All-Stars”. Festivities included free breakfast and lunch for drivers each day, various games, giveaways, photo contests, and more.
