What is the best way to recruit truck drivers?
There’s never going to be a silver bullet. The driver shortage is a national phenomenon, affecting virtually every company in the transportation industry.
Be prepared. The more you know about the trucking industry, your company, the routes and the customers, the more credible you seem. It’s why many companies have former drivers involved in the recruiting and hiring process.
Have a plan. If you’re hiring drivers all day, no doubt you have a candidate funnel. But when’s the last time you took a critical look at it? Where are the bottlenecks? If you can eliminate or reduce the bottlenecks, you’ll increase your conversion rates and have more candidates turn into drivers for your company.
Ask good questions. You can make sure your candidates are good fits for their job by discovering their pain points. What keeps your candidates up at night? What do they value? You have to probe to get to the core of what your candidates look for in a job.
