One way to address the growing shortage of truck drivers is to actually listen to what truck drivers want from the job they perform and that does not always center around pay, though wages make up a large proportion of their wants and needs.

Attend Fleet Owner’s free webinar, Listening to the Voice of the Driver can Ease the Shortage, on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT to learn about how driver wages differ among various sectors of the trucking industry and how those differences affect retention rates. Attendees will also learn about other factors involved in driver retention: physical labor they are expected to perform in their jobs, home time, and benefits; all factors drivers express as reasons for staying with or leaving their employers.

Speakers are Leah Shaver, chief operating officer at The National Transportation Institute, and Patrick Pendergast, group director of talent acquisition at Ryder System, Inc. Register now for this webinar, presented by Fleet Owner and sponsored by Ryder System, Inc.
