Upcoming Webinar: “Hiring International Drivers: A Recruiter’s Guide to Hiring Experienced, Foreign CDL Drivers”

Professional driver recruitment and retention is arguably the biggest pain point for carriers across the United States – and now COVID-19 and its many accompanying challenges has only amplified the problem. While we’re still navigating uncertainty, now is a great time to put plans in place for 2021 and beyond to make sure your company is well suited for growth. And if you’re worried about border closings making this impossible, don’t be – these are EB3 visas and are not affected by existing immigration policy or changes.

Even though there were 7.8 million people employed in trucking-related jobs in 2018, up 100,000 from the previous year, according to the American Trucking Association, the forecast still predicts a growing shortage of drivers (160,000 unfilled driver positions over the next decade).

Enter a solution to this growing concern that will be instrumental for companies. Rob Peacock, a South African businessman and management consultant, developed a program that brings South African drivers with over 10 years of experience to the U.S. as permanent residents and even gives them the opportunity for citizenship. 

In our upcoming webinar, “Hiring International Drivers: A Recruiter’s Guide to Hiring Experienced, Foreign CDL Drivers”, Rob will be joined by Chad Hendricks, President of Brand Outcomes and Host of the Recruit and Retain Podcast, as they share specifics of the program, how it’s evolved, and why your organization could benefit from participating.

With tremendous experience in the industry, Rob and Chad will share their insights regarding:

  • Specific details of the program and benefits to carriers, such as how these individuals are true OTR drivers and are willing to be out for weeks at a time, incurring your company no upfront costs
  • How to navigate the legal process of hiring foreign drivers with employment-based green cards
  • What the financial investment entails and how an investment can make a difference in drivers’ lives
  • How employing foreigners helps to address the shortfall of available drivers in a tight U.S. labor market
  • And much more
