Driver engagement: From hire to retire

Driver Wages began accelerating Q3 2020 in response to rising freight rates as increased demand has outstripped capacity in most markets and turnover is on the rise. Nearly every conversation in the last 7 weeks has started with “where have all the drivers gone?” followed by “we halted hiring March – May and now we cant catch up!” and “we could grow by X if only we had drivers!”

Engaging our mobile workforce – from hire to retire – has never been more critical, so our webinar will update you on current conditions, and share best practices for attracting, recruiting, onboarding, and retaining professional drivers.

Join NTI President & CEO Leah Shaver, Werner Enterprises’ Vice President of Driver Recruiting Chris Polenz, and Bob Hitt of Salesforce, on Tuesday 10/6, brought to you by Salesforce via Fleet Owner.
