Resources for Driver Retention
Outreach and engagement are critical for checking the pulse of your driver’s workplace satisfaction. This year, we explored how carriers can incorporate their drivers into their company strategies to increase transparency and build trust. We also shared why you should survey your drivers and provided some of our best tips to craft survey questions that will help you and your team deliver a better experience to drivers.
Are you looking for a quick check on your retention initiatives? Look at your strategies in a new light by reviewing key factors to take your retention tactics to the next level. Or, take a holistic approach to the entire driver lifecycle by nailing the 3 R’s: Recruiting, Referrals, and Retention.
Lastly, don’t lose sight of trends from trusted sources in the industry! If you missed it, set aside time to watch or listen to our popular webinar with Alex Leslie, research analyst with the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), on how to recruit, train, and retain younger adults in Trucking.
Resources for Driver Recruiting
With a driver shortage on every recruiter’s mind, finding qualified CDL drivers is more challenging than ever. But we know many of our customers wear a variety of hats in a single role and juggling recruiting with industry compliance is the name of the game. So we answered a lot of questions this year on how to manage it all, from determining the right recruiting KPIs to building the best driver onboarding experience from interview to orientation.
Through our blog and expertly-led webinars, we explored tough topics like overcoming common CDL driver recruiting challenges and recognizing and avoiding unconscious bias in your recruiting processes. We even published a handy, quick checklist to use during your mid-year review of recruiting so you can stay on track and measure your progress throughout the year.
And, if you’re looking for exactly what to say, you can’t go wrong with our book on how to do precisely that.
Keeping up with Compliance
No matter how long you’ve been in the industry, you know the importance of compliance—from safety to regulations to qualifications and efficiency. With expert advice from industry leaders, we covered a host of topics designed to add clarity to the broad topic of compliance:
- Do you really need ten years of work history for CDL driver employment verification?
- The FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse—what is it, what’s changing, and what do carriers need to do (and more!)
- How to reduce risk through proper driver qualification
- What to know about the FMCSA’s safe driver apprenticeship pilot program and how it could help with the driver shortage.
