GREAT IDEAS IN ACTION, Where: Petro Travel Store #353

GREAT IDEA: HOLIDAY STAFFING

The trucking business never sleeps, which means truckstops and travel plazas have to keep their doors open around the clock. That can create a challenge when scheduling employ­ees, particularly around the holidays.

Travel center operators have the challenge of balancing a schedule to handle the holiday workload and granting time off for team players to be with their families. At the Petro Travel Store #353 in Portage, Wisconsin, each team player chooses to work three of the five holidays—Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Years Eve and New Years Day.

This gives the team players the chance to plan for holiday traditions and events as they know when exactly they will work during the holidays. The three of five days strikes a fair balance between work and personal time and boosts morale for employees while they are working the holidays. Plus, the team players appreciate having some time off with their families.
