Something You've Always Wanted
July 4, 2021
Life is short. Work somewhere awesome. Better yet, work someplace that gives you what you want—more vacation time. At Millis Transfer, we offer our drivers three weeks of paid vacation, starting with your first year. What could be better than that? How about less stress? Interestingly enough, these two things are intrinsically connected.
Forbes.Com reports that a healthy work-life balance is crucial to achieving a healthy work environment. It helps to reduce stress and prevents burnout in the workplace. Stress equates to headaches and health issues such as hypertension, digestive troubles, chronic aches and pains, and heart problems. Who wants that? Stress is also linked to higher risks of depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Working tons of overtime also increases fatigue, mood swings, and actually decreases work performance. Harvard Business estimates that burned-out employees cost an estimated $125 billion to $190 billion a year in healthcare expenses.
Most people don’t realize the responsibilities associated with being a professional truck driver. When you’re hauling nearly 80,000 pounds down a highway, drivers need to do everything possible to ensure their safety and the safety of the public. For this reason, it’s crucial to work for a company that understands the necessity of the work-life balance. At Millis Transfer, we provide extensive vacation opportunities because we understand what it means for you and the workplace.
