Recruit & Retain: Trucking Edition

May 27, 2020

What can you do to make positive changes in your carrier? How do you take feedback from your drivers and implement it? What are you doing to communicate with your drivers? How often are you communicating? How are you doing that communication? 

Welcome back to Recruit and Retain, Trucking Edition. This week we are talking to Max Farrell, 

CEO at WorkHound, the company giving a megaphone to frontline workers. 

“If you haven't looked at WorkHound in the past, WorkHound is a platform all about getting driver feedback, so that it can be actionable for a carrier.”

So if you’re concerned about how current events are impacting your drivers, and what kind of feedback you’re receiving from them, as well as what type of leadership is being displayed in the trucking industry right now, you’ve come to the right place. 

“I think now is a perfect time to be scoping out how do we become a better version of ourselves. We can either operate in fear and let the fear take us and not do anything productive, or we can just say, ‘how do we come out of this a better version of ourselves?’ I prefer the latter.”

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • How WorkHound can help your business
  • Leadership in trucking
  • Early denial around Covid-19
  • Hazard pay
  • Trucking is the backbone of the American economy
  • How to onboard remotely
  • Planning for future recruitment
