Max Farrell, CEO of WorkHound, will be the featured presenter again in part two of this series on driver retention. Gathering feedback directly from drivers is a foundational step for companies looking to improve their retention rate, but all too often it’s an afterthought.

Ever wonder why drivers leave your company? Do you wish you had better driver retention rates? Could your driver communication strategy be improved?
Max Farrell, CEO of WorkHound, will be the featured presenter in a two-part series on driver retention – one of the most critical challenges facing carriers today. No matter how high your company’s driver turnover rates are, even a small improvement can dramatically (and positively) impact your bottom line. In webinar #8 of our multi-month series, Reimagine the Driver Lifecycle, Max will share practical insight regarding driver retention.
Converting applicants to hired drivers is the major focus for most CDL driver recruiters, but many companies are still challenged with high turnover and major headaches, making the recruiting process a seemingly never-ending black hole.
A great orientation is what sets the driver (and your bottom line) up for long-term success, but creating an effective strategy isn’t as easy as funneling new drivers through an HR process. In webinar #7 of our multi-month series, Reimagine the Driver Lifecycle, Scott Anderson, COO of Luma, will share his onboarding secrets.
A fundamental shift in how carriers recruit and qualify drivers will occur on January 6, 2020. Safety will improve as drug and/or alcohol violations will be easier to identify, and as drivers who are ineligible to operate commercial motor vehicles are promptly removed from their driving responsibilities as a result.
However, this improvement will come with a cost as carriers adapt to new rules. This webinar, featuring Dave Osiecki, President, Scopelitis Transportation Consulting LLC & Regulatory Consultant to DriverReach, will explore how companies need to prepare.
Your drivers are often your biggest advocates when it comes to hiring – but are you fully leveraging their reach to attract new driver referrals? If you’re like most carriers, you have the opportunity to grow.
