R&R 2019 Kicks Off Today!
We are so excited to welcome everyone to the 16th Annual
Recruitment & Retention Conference today. We have a sold-out conference for the trucking industry’s recruiting and retention professionals this week and we can’t wait to meet all of you. This is a unique annual event that allows us to network with other industry leaders and discuss recruiting and retention challenges and strategies. It’s always great to hear some new perspectives and come away with fresh ideas and new objectives for your organization. Registration started this afternoon and will run through 8 p.m. Our opening reception this evening will include a concert by ACM and CMA award-winning group Lonestar. This is a fantastic way to kick off a great event.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Decode”. We’re bringing you an in-depth analysis of today’s driver in the form of several sessions and workshops to help you understand today’s driver market and how to implement successful driver recruiting and retention strategies. The next two days are packed full of insightful information from an incredible lineup of speakers and panelists.
Some key highlights you can look forward to include hearing from New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff; as well as Chris Spear, the president and CEO of American Trucking Associations; and Christopher Penn, BrainTrust Insights co-founder and data scientist. You can also look forward to a number of workshop options to choose from during breakout sessions. Topics of these workshops cover everything from utilizing social media to leverage your recruitment and retention efforts, overhauling your driver applications, hiring student drivers and targeting millennials in today’s industry. We’ll also cap off the day tomorrow with dinner and a concert from Anthony Orio & The Goodfellers at FGL House. You won’t want to miss any of it. Stay tuned for tomorrow when we recap the first full day of the Recruitment & Retention Conference.
