Best Companies to Work For 2015: Total Quality Logistics

Find out why they're No. 1 in the small company category


Published:

Total Quality Logistics

www.tql.com

Location: Denver

Rank: 1 in small company category

The culture: TQL operates on four “Winning Principles”: Pledge integrity. Exceed expectations. Recognize the value of teamwork. Be forthright about conflict

Perks: TQL’s famous “Beer Drop Fridays” occur every time the team breaks a company record or hits a major milestone. Other perks: Discounted LA Fitness memberships; family-oriented events such as the Easter Eggstravaganza; the TQL Summer Picnic; TQL’s Pancakes with Santa; and patio parties, complete with grilling, ping-pong and bean bag toss tournaments to foster team building and camaraderie.

Giving back: Employees volunteer at the Denver Rescue Mission and have an annual fundraiser, Hauls for Heroes, in which a portion from every load TQL arranges during a given week during the month of May is donated to a foundation that supports and sends care packages to troops.

The inside scoop: From a recent hire: “I have the privilege of working with some of my best friends. Ping-pong, in-office TVs, fantastic camaraderie, after-work happy hours ­— all of these things are paramount to keeping people sane while battling the daily grind. So often I hear people talking about how much they hate their job, how much they hate their boss, how Monday mornings are the worst part of their week. I feel incredibly lucky to have no idea what that feels like.”
