The critical trends impacting the driver market in 2022

NTI’s Leah Shaver kicked off the Driver Assets and Operations panel at the annual Trucking Profitability Strategies conference at the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business on April 24, 2022, with a video message to attendees, where she provided an overview of the critical economic, demographic, and social trends impacting the professional driver recruiting and retention landscape in 2022.

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

How many drivers does your fleet lose each year to medical concerns and DOT disqualifications? 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.

How fleets can build a rewarding and secure career for drivers — and why NTI launched the ‘I Heart Truckers’ campaign

Leah Shaver, president and chief executive officer of the National Transportation Institute (NTI), is back on Taking the Hire Road with DriverReach’s Jeremy Reymer to discuss the current state of the driver market, the data behind driver pay trends, why sign-on bonuses can be counter-effective in driver recruiting, and how and why fleets can embrace the I Heart Truckers campaign.
