An ideal freight career is all about being surrounded by the right people. The BEST people! At Tallgrass, our company culture is practiced daily, and our values are deeply rooted into our DNA. Our company culture embodies like-minded individuals who continually invest in the success of others. But what does that culture really look like?
It’s no secret that professionals around the country are reevaluating their careers, in all kinds of industries. Forbes calls it a “Great Resignation,” the Washington Post calls it the “Great Reassessment.” Call it what you will, but many people are hunting for a role with an ideal company culture. Flexibility, benefits, compensation, support, team atmosphere . . . Every aspect matters when you’re considering your next opportunity! And you deserve to know what good culture truly looks like.
Now, we know we talk a big game about being the best freight brokerage. And we’re always ready to back it up and share with transparency. If you ask us, company culture is more crucial than just paying lip service to it. Let’s take a look at what the best freight agency culture really looks like.
We treat people like people
Our culture starts with our values. This is what we stand for:
These values are embedded in everything we do, flexibility included. Tallgrass creates a space that encourages work-life balance. Freight agents have everything they need to create the life they’ve always dreamed of! Our agents have the autonomy to pursue that entrepreneurial dream and build their own books of business.
But unlike other freight brokerages, no one ever flies solo here. Instead, Tallgrass provides the mentorship, support and unparalleled resources needed for our agents to reach their full potential.
Education is another pivotal element to our agents personal and professional success. In addition to the wide spectrum of resources our agents have at their disposal, we also invest heavily in our team through events like our Agent Roundtable. The Roundtable is the perfect way for freight brokers to further their education and learn about new industry trends.
Another example of how Tallgrass treats our people like people is through industry-leading compensation and benefits. We believe that if you’re going to work hard, your company should work hard for you. Beyond the paycheck, our freight agents also have access to top-tier benefits, including health, dental and vision insurance.
Then there’s our work-hard-play-hard side! We hustle over here, but we also have a lot of fun, and that makes us a family. From our Bounce House Bash event to our iconic Christmas Party, we host a variety of events and competitions throughout the year to keep our team energetic and happy!
Awards like no other
Think about this one for a minute: Is your company offering rewards you actually want? Sure, a coffee shop gift card for a free latte is a nice gesture, but that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to how we reward our Tallgrass freight agents.
Being the best freight brokerage means that we offer the best rewards. At Tallgrass, we offer travel incentives, which include $5,000 vouchers and once-in-a-lifetime bucket-list experiences! We take every possible opportunity to recognize and reward our freight agents for their successes, which is exactly why we offer performance-based incentives, like our Elite Circle, Diamond Club and Club 200 programs. Our sales incentives are designed as a way to praise the tenacity, integrity and drive that our like-minded team of agents share.
Tallgrass Freight rewards programs reflect our mission to represent the future of freight brokerages. Our sales incentives are designed as a way to praise the tenacity, integrity and drive that our team of agents share — and we’re proud to be THE destination company for top-tier agents who want to thrive.
Our Culture is Award-Winning
Our culture is lauded year over year here at Tallgrass! We are incredibly proud to receive local and national recognition every year! Growth-based rewards are a big deal, of course, and we’re proud to have an outstanding track record there. But we’re most humbled to be named one of Kansas City’s Best Places to Work. It speaks to our company culture and our ability to keep it strong year after year.
So, clearly, we don’t just have a grill out back or hand you a beer and call it “culture.” We take the time to communicate our appreciation by celebrating our team and recognizing the value of their hard work.
