PSPs And Better Data-Driven Decisions - Taking the Hire Road with Jeremy Reymer and Yvonne Glover

Jeremy Reymer, the Founder of DriverReach, teams up with Yvonne Glover, a trusted industry ally and the Director of Operations at Tyler Technologies, an organization specializing in creating solutions to enhance the efficiency of the public sector.

Tyler Technologies boasts a staggering 97% usage among large government agencies for its solutions, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The company played a pivotal role in building and managing FMCSA's preemployment screening program (PSP) from its inception.

“Our focus is on problem-solving—assisting the government in aiding constituents. We're exploring ways to facilitate government access to data,” Glover explained.

The FMCSA's preemployment screening serves to assist carriers in evaluating whether driver candidates align with their organizations. While hiring managers must review each applicant’s motor vehicle record, the accuracy, timeliness, and completeness of these records can greatly vary by state.

The PSP supplements motor vehicle records, providing managers with a more comprehensive overview of each applicant’s history. Updated approximately every 30 days, the screening report offers five years of crash data and three years of inspection data for every driver, irrespective of the state.

Glover emphasized that the PSP doesn't make decisions for hiring managers but aids them in decision-making. Carriers still retain the choice to onboard drivers with negative marks on their PSPs. In such cases, the data assists carriers in tailoring training opportunities for new drivers.

While discussions often highlight how FMCSA preemployment screening benefits drivers, the PSP is equally designed to support drivers. PSP Monitoring, a driver-specific program, alerts participants to any changes in their records, free of charge.

Drivers can request their records at any time, regardless of receiving a monitoring alert. This empowers them to ensure accuracy, monitor their performance, and understand how they are perceived by hiring managers.

“As a driver, knowing what others perceive is crucial. Accuracy is paramount,” Glover stressed.

By enrolling in PSP Monitoring and regularly checking their records, drivers can address any inaccuracies proactively, preventing potential issues during job interviews.
