Onboarding and Retention:
The Critical Role of Driver Training

Watch On Demand

Proper training is critical to the onboarding and ongoing retention of drivers. When we teach our drivers good habits from the beginning, they are less likely to fall back on bad habits. What's more, driving is a professional occupation and professionals are inclined to train throughout their entire career. So when we train drivers like the professionals they are, they are more inclined to stay. It's a win, win.

In this Town Hall, we look at what makes an effective training program, how to deliver training to drivers regardless of their tenure, and how a great training program can help you keep your best drivers for the long haul.

Employee Driver vs. Owner Operator

Watch On Demand

This group will focus on how to implement a set of standards within these two worker classifications. Based on the laws surrounding the classification of a truck driver, Motor Carriers have to approach the use of industry standards differently. This discussion will be heavily focused on how to implement industry standards properly without crossing “employment” lines.

A critical component to implementing and enforcing industry standards is compensation. Drivers who adhere to safety standards deserve to receive better compensation. This group will discuss compensation theories and how they interact with a set of industry standards.

Monitoring, Incentives, and Retention

Raising the Bar with Continuous Education

Watch On Demand

Current underwriting restrictions on drivers with less than 2-3 years CDL A experience are prohibiting new drivers from entering the industry — further exacerbating the driver shortage we have been facing for years. Why is the insurance industry afraid to lessen the experience underwriting requirement? And how can industry standards help?

As our panelists will discuss, the trucking industry has an opportunity to establish a defined path for drivers to be monitored and receive continuing education. This can only serve to help motivate the insurance industry to rethink their underwriting requirements.
