At Tallgrass, our distinctive company culture is our foundation. Our people are at the core of everything we do, and our mission will always be to help our agents thrive. “My favorite part about this company — beyond the numbers, beyond the growth — is our quality people and the quality stories that make up their lives,” says Damon Anderson, Founder and CEO.
Our company culture is practiced daily and echoes throughout the Tallgrass team, despite our agents’ physical location (because our TGF team spans from coast to coast!). One of the most critical aspects of our culture is the investment in the success of our people.
So what does excellent company culture mean for our talented freight brokers? It means they gain everything from industry-leading compensation and insane awards to taking part in transforming the future of freight.
Support to Thrive
Tired of going it alone? Or tired of being part of a company where support is nowhere to be found? Yeah, we’ve been there. At the core of our culture is support. And with the right coaching and training, our agents quickly earn more than ever.
From day one, our freight agents have access to expert support and ongoing, hands-on coaching. Our back office team is the best in the business, offering help with everything from billing and accounts payable to insurance and much more. And we can’t forget our twice-annual Agent Roundtable. We bring our ambitious agents to Kansas City for an unforgettable mastermind-style weekend — featuring both financial planning education and a no-question-off-the-table panel of our successful agents.
Bridging Culture and Compensation
From the beginning, we’ve always thought about compensation differently (which is another reason we’re the best freight brokerage). We recognize that our freight agents are Tallgrass Freight’s lifeblood and compensate them accordingly.
With uncapped commissions and industry-leading splits, our agents gain top-notch paychecks when they partner with Tallgrass. Our compensation model was created to support that entrepreneurial spirit every step of the way.
Competitive compensation doesn’t stop at paychecks. In addition to making more money than ever, our agents also gain access to health, dental and vision insurance benefits! We really do cover all the bases.
“The culture, supportive environment and refreshing transparency at Tallgrass is unparalleled,” TGF agent Sean B. says. “I’ve spoken with several companies about their agent programs and offerings, yet not a single opportunity measures up to the one provided here at Tallgrass.”
You bet we do it big when it comes to rewarding our team! After all, being the best freight brokerage means that we offer the best rewards. At Tallgrass, we offer travel incentives so our agents can gain once-in-a-lifetime experiences. When you work hard, you deserve to play hard too!
Our rewards include travel vouchers and incredible bucket list experiences! We take every opportunity to recognize and reward our freight agents for their successes. Our Elite Circle, Diamond Club and Club 200 programs are designed to encourage our dedicated team of agents to never stop growing! We’re welcoming a RECORD number of agents into these clubs in 2022! And in addition to these special rewards programs, we’re always coming up with fun sales incentives and competitions for achievements.
We’re proud to be THE destination company for top-tier agents who want to thrive. “I love the enthusiasm everyone shares, and the work-hard-play-hard environment,” TGF agent Ross H. says. “The energy is palpable.”
Transforming the Future of Freight
When freight brokers join Tallgrass, they take part in transforming the future of freight. They gain the ability to be part of an award-winning team with a company culture that is lauded year over year (and for good reason)! We are incredibly proud to continuously receive local and national recognition.
Of course, growth-based rewards are a big deal, 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 for four years in a row!
Clearly, we don’t just have a grill out back or hand you a beer and call it “culture.” We take the time to recognize the value of our agent’s hard work with annual events, like our Bounce House Bash!
Our culture is at the core of everything we do, and we’ve intentionally created the best around. So yeah, our agents have a lot to gain!
