• Keys to Driver Recruitment and Retention (07/10/18)
    Three main factors of money, lifestyle and respect are identified by recruitment expert Pat Hightower (The Hightower Agency) as key in recruiting and maintaining drivers, reports FleetOwner on Monday this week. Hightower further explains other complications in this area and that companies are misguided in primarily focusing on recruitment incentives, with rare strategies for retention. While all three of these three factors are slowly improving in the industry, a larger increase in salary is the primary incentive for younger drivers.
