6,486 Now Included in "Circle of Honor" For Driving 25 Years or More Without Accident
Feb. 26, 2013 /3BL Media/ - UPS (NYSE: UPS) announced the induction of 1,283 drivers into its elite "Circle of Honor," raising to 6,486 the number of drivers who have steered clear of accidents for 25 years or more.
The number of new inductees is the largest for any single year in the company's history and includes 41 new members from Canada, Germany and Puerto Rico.
At UPS, we are known for our iconic drivers. UPS customers have come to count on them for 105 years. They’re trusted, familiar faces in neighborhoods and businesses across the globe. But our drivers are more than helpful and friendly—they’re also very safe.
Today, I am helping to organize a ceremony at UPS headquarters, where UPS will sign the Statement of Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a 40-year U.S. Armed Forces initiative that promotes cooperation and understanding between members of the military and civilian employers. This gives us the opportunity to show the more than 23,500 UPS employees who’ve served – or are now serving – in the Guard or Reserves that we proudly stand behind their service. It gives us an opportunity to say “thank you”.
With 102,000 drivers delivering over 15 million packages on a normal business day, UPS drivers are a familiar sight in communities across the country. If you’re a small business owner or an avid online shopper, you’re probably even on a first name basis with your driver.
