Fort Smith-based ArcBest Corp., a global shipping and logistics company, has been named to Forbes America’s Best Large Employers list for 2016.

Forbes, working with online statistics provider Statista, surveyed more than 30,000 employees across 25 industries. The list ranks the Top 500 large employers based on the results, which asked employees how likely they were to recommend their company to others. The anonymous online survey also asked them to rate other employers in the industry.

“We’re honored to be named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers,” ArcBest Chairman, President and CEO Judy McReynolds said in a statement. “Our employees make us who we are: a company that creatively solves our customers’ supply chain challenges. Their dedication is why customers rely on ArcBest brands for their logistics solutions.”

ArcBest offers online and in-person training courses, continuing education opportunities and leadership development. The company also places an emphasis on employee wellness through health challenges, comprehensive benefits and retirement plans, and an on-site health clinic at its corporate headquarters.
