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. 

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. 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.

In this webinar, 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.
