Finders, Keepers: Winning Ways to Recruit and Retain Drivers
Originally aired: Wednesday, September 6, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET
Today’s truck driver is every bit a professional as any other skilled job. But if you want people to view trucking as a profession, you need to package it as such.
With National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (September 10-17) around the corner, it’s the perfect time to discuss how to bring drivers on board as professionals and then craft an appealing career path for them.
Our panel of expert speakers will discuss:
• Building relationships with truck driving schools
• Attracting younger drivers
• Better onboarding practices
• Rethinking pay and home time
• Benefits you may not have thought of
• Outlining and rewarding clear goals and expectations
• And more!
HDT Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge will lead the discussion and will be joined by Duff Swain, President of Trincon, and Tom McKellar, VP of Transportation for Plastic Express.
