2018 Driver Rodeo Championship
This annual event allows us to recognize our drivers for their skills & all that they do every day to provide exceptional customer service while doing it safely!
The Granite Group 2018 Driver Championship Rodeo was held this past Saturday at our Central Distribution Center in Londonderry, NH. The event allowed us to recognize our drivers for their skills, test those skills against their peers, and thank them for all that they do every day to provide exceptional customer service while doing it safely!
We had roughly 70 drivers compete on two obstacle courses and at seven pre-trip vehicle inspection stations, along with safe driving and situational awareness videos and open forums. Several members of our Leadership Team, Branch Managers, fellow peers, members of the New Hampshire Professional Drivers Association and Troopers from the NHDOS volunteered to make the day exciting and beneficial! Thank you to ALL of the drivers who participated, and to the many volunteers who judged and scored the competitions!
Congratulations to all of our winners:
