R&R 2018 - It’s a Wrap!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 15th Annual Recruitment & Retention Conference this year. We hope you enjoyed everything it had to offer. It was great to network with all of you who attended, and we really enjoyed learning more about where driver recruitment and retention efforts are heading in our industry.

The second day of the conference started out this morning with two general sessions. In the first session, we heard from the top three nominees for Transport Topics Recruiting Professional of the Year Award. Each nominee spoke about some of the strategies and innovations they implemented in the past year to support their recruitment and retention goals. Congrats to Dave Chesterman with Celadon Trucking for winning the 2017 Transport Topics Recruiting Professional of the Year Award!

Next, we participated in a roundtable discussion led by Erin Young, vice president of client services for Conversion Interactive Agency, about various topics connected to driver recruitment and retention. It was great to be able to network with each other and hear where other carriers are in meeting their recruitment and retention goals. We closed out the conference with a final breakout session, allowing people the chance to take a repeat workshop they may have missed yesterday.

Our 15th Annual Recruitment & Retention Conference this year was a huge success and we couldn’t have done it without all of our outstanding speakers, panelists and moderators. We also want to take a moment to thank our many sponsors for their continued support.
Our sponsors this year included Diamond Sponsors: Truckers Report and Stay Metrics; Platinum Sponsor: Hiremaster; Gold Sponsors: American Driver Network, DriverFacts, EFS.
Silver sponsors:, Assurint, C.Q. Short, DocHauler, Driver iQ, Driver Reach, EBE, EpicVue,, Indeed, Jobs 2 Careers, Luma, Professional Driver Agency, Randall Reilly, Sirius XM and Truck Right and ZipRecruiter.

We particularly want to thank Transport Topics and the American Trucking Associations for partnering with us to present this incredible conference.
