American Heart Association
All of us at Apex are super excited to announce that we are golden – again! For the second consecutive year we received a Gold Level Workplace Health Achievement Index Recognition from the American Heart Association (AHA). That means we are still quite healthy. In fact, we had 92% participation in our most recent health screenings, and we always encourage employees to include their spouses in the health screenings.

Healthiest Companies in America
Two and 12 – those numbers have a nice ring to them. We are so proud of two and 12. This is the second year Apex Capital is named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health. That means we take the health and wellness of our employees very seriously. What about the 12? Well, this is the 12th year that Apex is named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. We call it our lucky dozen. That honor is quite special because it’s all about our employees. Sarah King, Apex’s Health and Wellbeing Manager, offered some thoughts about the Healthiest Companies in America award. Apex was one of only 151 companies in the United States to earn this award in 2018. That number went down from 184 companies in 2017, when Apex first won. And Shelley Goodrum, Apex’s Chief Human Resources Officer, has watched Apex grow through the years and she’s pleased to know that the Best Companies to Work for in Texas honor reflects keeping all employees happy during that growth.

Keep Truckers Connected

The life of a trucker isn’t an easy one. There are long hours, long distances, long waits, and long periods of loneliness. What’s especially hard is being away from family for days, weeks, and sometimes even months. That separation can put an emotional and psychological strain on anybody behind the wheel of a big rig.

There are, however, convenient solutions to keep truckers connected to their families, their communities, and their world. You guessed it, this is where technology comes in. We’re going to explore the personal, life-affirming side of cell phones, video chat, emails, texts, apps, and social media. Yet this isn’t necessarily about all that electronic gadgetry. This is more about how important it is to use it to stay connected while you’re on the road.
