The trucking industry spends millions of dollars every year on truck driver turnover. Ironically, the same industry experiences the highest percentage rate of employee turnover. For replacing a single lost driver for an average company driver, dry van, the conservative estimate can cost $2,000 or more and it goes higher for drivers with specialized carriers. Besides the cost of replacing a lost driver, the cost related with training, recruitment, clerical and office support, diminished productivity, down time of equipment, testing etc., adds to the already increasing cost.
Home time issues, ugly freight, low pay, mistreatment by management, equipment, support etc. are some of the many reasons why drivers leave; however, there are also many reasons why drivers stay. Our expert speaker Mark Dixon in his research and development of over two years, looked up what the successful trucking companies are doing right and what wrong the companies with not so success were doing in their efforts to retain a steady employment of their driver pool.
In this presentation, Mark will reveal over 100 points to consider, some of them are obvious, some not so obvious. If just one of these points saves just one driver, the cost of this presentation will have paid for itself 10 times over. If it saves more than one driver, even more. If your company is experiencing driver turnover, you really can't afford not to attend this invaluable presentation. If just one point out of the 100 points discussed in the presentation saves just one driver, the cost of this presentation will have been paid back 10 fold. Realistically, these time proven solutions will save many of your drivers from looking or going elsewhere. The information provided in this session is invaluable to all trucking company personnel.
