President and CEO, Red Fox Medical Courier
Industry: Medical Transport HQ: Tampa
How This Boss Makes an Impact for Children in Florida
Rebecca Massicotte, CEO of Red Fox Delivery, offers a family-friendly workplace culture to her employees and contracted medical transportation drivers. For her 25 employees, she offers paid time off and flexible scheduling, allowing them freedom to spend time with their families and making it easier to manage a work/life balance. This policy supports early childhood development while keeping productivity at pace.
For her contract drivers, she values and instills a culture of flexibility. If a contracted driver needs to take time off for family or health issues, Rebecca works hard to fill in the gaps, so the delivery still makes it on time, but the driver feels supported. This policy benefits her company by virtually eliminating contract driver turnover because her drivers feel satisfied with their jobs.
Also, Rebecca works hard to create a company culture of emotional support and peer-to-peer counseling. She engages in open dialogue with her employees about their family issue. 1 in 5 Americans say they are uncomfortable talking to their managers about family and personal issues, but that’s on the case at Red Fox Delivery! Her open dialogue and counseling send the message that family is important!
