Driver turnover continues to ravage the trucking industry. At times, the turnover rate can be greater than100%. Smaller firms tend to score better in retention than their larger competitors but neither seem to have provided a long-term solution.
Further, increased CSA standards force recruiters into a tight spot. While they are struggling to retain drivers, their ability to recruit is limited by additional requirements placed on them by CSA. Navigating the often confusing waters of CSA standards for safe drivers can prove to lengthen the process even further.
Truckers Matter has announced the launch of a product that attacks these two problems. "Recruiting Matters" is a comprehensive new product that brings together an arsenal of tools intended to expedite the recruitment process and increase driver retention.
Recruiting Matters is a portal of information about a driver's history. It brings together data on the driver's history, risk, PSP score and presents it from one dashboard. The entire pre-screening process is expedited by collecting this information into one location for easy review. Relying on the expert CSA knowledge of Truckers Matter, recruiters can spend less time researching standards and more time deciding whether a driver is right for their company.
Recruiters have more options. During the prescreening process, higher risk drivers can be immediately placed into a driver development program such as i-Matter. This allows recruiters to say yes to more drivers while continuing to maintain safety as the core focus of their hiring process.
This announcement comes on the heels of another exciting announcement by Truckers Matter. The Texas Motor Transportation Association has formed a joint venture with Truckers Matter. TMTA will utilize both i-Matter and Recruiting Matters as resources for their members seeking to reduce turnover and increase driver retention.
