The forces at play behind driver wages

How are the current economic conditions affecting driver wages? NTI’s Leah Shaver joins the Taking the Hire Road podcast to dive into how the economic changes in 2022 have — and haven’t — affected the driver market, fleets’ recruiting and retention strategies, and the forces at play behind driver wages. Also part of the discussion: How fleets can engage with owner-operators looking for a safer haven, and NTI’s latest Driver Market Forecast.

Driver health and wellness as a pivotal frontier in recruiting and retention

Leah Shaver, president and chief executive officer of the National Transportation Institute (NTI), in this one-hour webinar panel discussion with Dr. Todd Simo and Bob Perry details the importance of documenting health-related turnover at your fleet, how fleets can support their drivers with health and wellness programs, and how to promote health fleetwide as a driver recruiting and retention tool.
