This is the fifth and final episode in a series recorded at the Recruit and Retain Conference in Nashville earlier this year. Some of you may know it as the R&R conference. This episode contains a compilation of multiple interviews who we spoke with at the conference.
In this week's episode, we will be speaking to Todd Hensley, Vice President at Driver iQ; Scott Dismuke, Director of Agents at Professional Driver Agency; and Shannon Newton, President at Arkansas Trucking Association.
Listen in to get the lowdown on some of the challenges and possible solutions surrounding recruiting and retaining long-term professional drivers. These experts will share the top trends and their predictions for how the industry will need to handle recruitment and retention going forward.
“I think recruiting is a complicated problem and I think the solutions are equally complicated. We can have an impact on the image of the industry and educating people on the types of professions that exist in the industry and teach young people that you can earn a good living without going to college.”
- Shannon Newton from Arkansas Trucking Association
