Keeping Our Long Distance Drivers Comfortable

An important part of any moving company’s success is its drivers.  Long distance drivers in particular are frequently away from home, friends, and family for several days – or even a couple of weeks – at a time.  We don’t see them as often as some of our other employees, so we make extra efforts to make them feel valued and appreciated.

We opened a dedicated, furnished break room at our Sterling, VA headquarters for our long-distance drivers and their helpers to enjoy when they are between jobs. We appreciate all of our drivers’ hard work and the tireless hours they spend on the road and we wanted to give them a place where they could feel comfortable and get rejuvenated before heading back on the open road. Fully furnished, the break room can accommodate up to eight people at a time to enjoy a meal, read, catch up on favorite TV shows, or simply relax.

“The break room is an example of how much we value our drivers and their helpers – they are an integral part of the team,” said Karl Holder, JK’s Long Distance Driver Coordinator.

“Just speaking out of personal experience, I started as a long-distance driver in 2010 so I know how important it is to have a comfortable place to rest in between jobs.  Now I’m a training supervisor at JK.  The company wants to help employees grow.”
