Amtrak was recently recognized for workplace excellence by earning a spot in Forbes magazine’s first-ever America’s Best Employers 2015.
The national passenger railroad is on the list of 500 employers across 25 industries where the workers like their jobs enough to tell others. Listed under the transportation & logistics category, Amtrak was selected based on Forbes’ independent survey of 20,000 workers throughout the U.S. to see which companies were the best.
Amtrak operates more than 300 trains each day and reaches more than 500 destinations. Employees enable the railroad to be a vital part of the national transportation network and economy. This recognition as a top employer highlights a work environment where everyone adds value and contributes to the business of delivering the company’s mission and strategic goals to provide intercity passenger rail service with superior safety, customer service and financial excellence.
“We want working at Amtrak to be a fulfilling experience where employees find a safe workplace, challenging and rewarding opportunities, enjoy respect among colleagues, competitive pay and benefits and a performance-oriented culture,” Amtrak President and CEO Joe Boardman said in a statement. “We recognize and value the contributions of our co-workers and managers want to help our team reach personal and professional goals.”
