Choptank Results University classes begin

May 26, 2016
Choptank Transport has launched its Results University professional development and continuing education classes.

Choptank Transport has launched its Results University professional development and continuing education classes. “Results-U,” as it is affectionately called inside the company, represents the commitment of Choptank’s leadership team to the investment in its people and their development.

“Career growth and advancement are a huge part of who we are at Choptank,” said Carlie Wright, corporate trainer at Choptank. “The continuing education classes have been customized to help enhance people skills, tailor management styles, motivate, and ultimately put employees on an upwardly mobile path.”

Extensive industry training is a large part of Choptank’s employee onboarding process, but it doesn’t stop there. Selected team members are given the opportunity to take a rigorous Transportation Intermediaries Association brokerage-certification class, a feather in the cap of any individual in the industry.  The newly offered Results University classes go one step further by focusing on employee development.

The continuing education classes are once a week and run for eight weeks.

“We had 22 applications and only had room for nine in the current class,” said Wright. “It’s just one example of how so many of our employees have a passion for what they do, and a need to excel.”

The classes will feature guest speakers from all departments in the company, including sales, logistics, carrier compliance, and human resources.

Results University Professional Development Book Club (PDBC) classes have also started with an enrollment of 24 students. Every three months, the reading material will change and a new class will begin.

Pam Hutchinson, Choptank’s vice-president of human resources, said, “Ninety-five percent of our promotions come from within the company. Targeted training like the Results University continuing education classes will create additional opportunities for seasoned employees working towards higher-level positions. The book club classes are more targeted toward personal and professional development.”

Choptank is expanding its facility and hiring 130 new positions at its Preston MD headquarters.
