Trincon Group will host a webinar on June 5, 2014, to address the driver shortage and what fleets can do to overcome the lack of drivers. It is the first in a series of webinars on the subject.

“A few weeks ago we presented a special webinar program aimed at providing a new perspective to solutions to the driver shortage problem,” said Duff Swain, president. “That webinar garnered a great deal of attention and interest. In response we will be rerunning that presentation on June 5, and following up that general program with a series of three webinars, offered approximately every two weeks, to provide additional detail on specific aspects of a comprehensive program for improving driver retention and recruiting.”

The three follow-up programs will take place June 19, July 10 and July 24. They will include:

  • The June 19 program will encourage carriers to look internally at strategies for improving driver retention and creating a business culture supportive of long-term retention.  This includes looking at organizational issues as well as different compensation alternatives.
  • On July 10, the On-Boarding and Orientation program will discuss those elements as a critical part of the transition of new recruits into the business, and for establishing mutual responsibility and accountability between drivers and the company.
  • On July 24, Effective Recruiting will review strategies and methods for attracting candidates including the role carriers can play in partnership with driver training schools.

The June 5 webinar will be held at 11 a.m. EST and will explore ways to address questions and start to define steps you can take right now to attract new drivers, and perhaps most importantly, keep the ones you have.
