2016 R&R Conference Wraps Up Today!
The 13th Annual Recruitment & Retention Conference was a great success! Each year, we come together and explore new strategies and innovations for recruiting and retaining drivers in the market. We couldn’t have put together this one-of-a-kind event without the help of our many attendees, sponsors, speakers and everyone who worked behind the scenes to make this event possible. Thank you for joining us this year!
Day two of the Conference began with a breakout session where attendees had the option to attend one of four workshops. The intensive workshop option, Winning Strategies and Common Mistakes Within the Driver Lead Funnel, part one, gave conference attendees some insight into successful driver lead funnel strategies and common mistakes to avoid. The other workshop options included Best Practices for Retaining Drivers in Today’s Market; Research Overview: Top Industry Issues for Drivers and Carriers; and Structuring Your Recruiting Department for Success. After a short break, a number of attendees heard representatives from The National Transportation Institute and Lawrence Companies, in the Driver Wages and the Market Today workshop, talk about the latest trends and data in regards to driver pay and how carriers can utilize that important information. Other workshop options during this breakout session included Dirty Little Secrets About Criminal Records; Transforming Driver Orientation with E-Learning; and the second part of the intensive workshop Winning Strategies and Common Mistakes Within the Driver Lead Funnel. The final general session of the conference was a networking roundtable, which allowed attendees the opportunity to participate in small-group discussions geared toward topics and concerns specific to them.
