Moms on the Move: Laura Lucas, Chief People Officer

Laura Lucas, Chief People Officer

As a mom of two boys aged 5 and 3, our Chief People Officer Laura Lucas knows that it can be challenging to balance family life with a rich and rewarding career, which is why Cargomatic goes the extra mile to ensure moms – and everyone! – have the resources they need to succeed both personally and professionally.

What makes Cargomatic a great place for moms to work?

As a mom myself of two little boys, I know that it can be challenging to balance family life with a rich and rewarding career. That’s why at Cargomatic, we strive to create an environment where employees can rely on each other, and you’re empowered with the tools you need to succeed no matter what your life looks like outside of work. Because at the end of the day, that balance is going to make you more successful and fulfilled in all aspects of your life.

How does Cargomatic support working moms?

We offer a generous benefits package to all full-time employees. In addition, we encourage managers to work with employees to be flexible and accommodate family and other responsibilities and lifestyles. Furthermore, we have been putting resources into our development programs, which include on-demand courses employees can take on their own time.

What does “inclusivity” mean when it comes to women in the Cargomatic workforce?

We always make sure to celebrate our female colleagues in moments that matter, like Mother’s Day of course but also Women’s History Month. Our team published a content series showcasing the amazing women who are changing the face of logistics and giving women visibility and the opportunity, with support from the company, to become leaders in the field.
