In this month’s episode, Jackie and Tim discuss the role of transparency in advertising for new drivers and retaining current ones. From using averages in pay and mileage instead of “best-case scenarios” to attract fresh talent to showing respect to current drivers, carriers have a large array of retention tools already available to them.

In our first episode of 2019, Kelly and Tim hear from three different drivers about why they have left, or are leaving, their companies. All three drivers voice “broken expectations” as their #1 reason for leaving.

A frequent caller, “NuttyButty”, clarifies that high pay will only go so far. Broken promises and unclear expectations easily ruin the satisfaction of a solid paycheck. Drivers are much more likely to stay with their current carriers if they know what is expected of them.

KJ Tip: Companies should sit down with new drivers and schedule regular check-ins with current drivers to discuss upcoming expectations.

In today’s radio show drivers: Nuttybutty, Allen, Gagdet, and TimRing call in to give Tim and Jackie their reasons why they have all stayed with their companies through thick and thin. Though all four drivers come from different backgrounds, companies, and needs- the common theme between them all is: their companies offer respect, open door policies, and great coworkers.

Driver TimRing’s company also utilizes social media to stay connected with their drivers- no matter their location. Through weekly Youtube videos by their CEO and Facebook LIVE videos to answer any driver questions, drivers on the road and at home stay in-the-loop and engaged. Driver retention rates are no longer tied to just pay and equipment but now require drivers to feel respected.

In one of our favorite episodes to date, Kelly and Jackie discuss how current KJ clients are decreasing driver recruitment costs and increasing retention rates by investing in driver programs such as driver liaisons and onboarding mentors.

Backing up the idea of investing in driver programs, drivers calling in credit their companies’ willingness to listen to and provide for driver needs as the #1 reason for staying – including one driver who stayed for 28 years and another for 44 years!
