The Power of the WIG

Posted on June 30, 2017

In 2016, leadership here at Nussbaum heard about a practice called 4 Disciplines of Execution(4DX) by Franklin Covey. The goal of 4DX is that, in the whirlwind of our daily tasks, each person in the company is empowered to affect our organization's goal. What is that extremely important “thing” that our company needs to achieve and how can our employees directly effect that goal? 4DX gives structure to the goal and promotes intense focus to execute and achieve whatever goal we would collectively decide.

Still Celebrating Faith And Family!

Posted on May 29, 2017

It has been two years since we began our Faith & Family campaign that originally included 80 trailers wrapped in colorful vinyl graphics featuring 4 scenes that showcase family moments and activities.

These 4 scenes included a father teaching his daughter to ride a bike, a husband and wife enjoying a walk in nature, a father and his sons on a fishing trip, and a family gathered around a fire at their camping site.

Fueling Professional Drivers With Habit Based Scoring

Posted on July 29, 2016

We believe that every driver wants to be a professional. When you teach them how to drive more professionally, that is something they can be proud of and is a reflection of our culture and belief that they are not just a truck driver.

- Brent Nussbaum, CEO

This idea drives many of Nussbaum’s driver incentives and benefits programs. It has lead us to develop programs that attract the most professional drivers in the industry. Most recently, it lead to an overhaul of our scorecard program and earned us recognition as a CCJ Innovator.
