Times-Record - - NEWS -

PRE­STON — Chop­tank Trans­port has been rec­og­nized as a win­ner in the re­cruit­ing cat­e­gory of the 2018 Op­ti­mas Awards by Work­force mag­a­zine, a Hu­man Cap­i­tal Me­dia pub­li­ca­tion.

The awards pro­gram, cel­e­brat­ing its 28th year, rec­og­nizes com­pa­nies achiev­ing suc­cess­ful mea­sur­able busi­ness out­comes through vi­sion­ary and im­pact­ful hu­man re­sources ini­tia­tives.

Thirty-one com­pa­nies were named win­ners from this year’s pool of nom­i­nees. Gold, Sil­ver and Bronze Op­ti­mas Awards were given in the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: ben­e­fits, busi­ness im­pact, cor­po­rate cit­i­zen­ship, global out­look, in­no­va­tion, man­ag­ing change, part­ner­ship, re­cruit­ing, train­ing and vi­sion. Ad­di­tion­ally, general ex­cel­lence was awarded to one com­pany demon­strat­ing ex­cel­lence in at least six of the afore­men­tioned cat­e­gories.

Pam Hutchin­son, Chop­tank’s vice pres­i­dent of hu­man re­sources, ex­plained, “The ta­lent mar­ket is vastly dif­fer­ent than it was just a few years ago. If you want to at­tract top ta­lent you must pro­vide the best can­di­date ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble and com­mu­ni­cate proac­tively with prospec­tive em­ploy­ees. Our team has changed their whole per­spec­tive on ta­lent ac­qui­si­tion and it shows in the im­proved qual­ity and vol­ume of can­di­dates we have been able to bring on board. Peo­ple drive this busi­ness and re­ceiv­ing this award re­flects the hard work of our en­tire HR and ta­lent ac­qui­si­tion team. It’s a huge honor.”

“For over the 28 years we’ve seen com­pa­nies place in­creas­ing im­por­tance on hu­man re­sources ini­tia­tives, re­al­iz­ing the po­ten­tial a strong HR de­part­ment can have on busi­ness growth,” Rick Bell, ed­i­to­rial di­rec­tor of Work­force mag­a­zine, said.

“This year’s fi­nal­ists stand out in an ever-ex­pand­ing field of qual­i­fied nom­i­nees, and we’re pleased to see so many or­ga­ni­za­tions us­ing in­no­va­tive HR prac­tices to im­prove their busi­ness,” Bell said.

Op­ti­mas Award win­ners were ini­tially an­nounced on work­force.com and Chop­tank Trans­port will be pro­filed in the Novem­ber/December is­sue of Work­force mag­a­zine.
