SOUTH BEND, Ind. (PRWEB) March 09, 2020
Stay Metrics, the leading provider of driver retention tools, announced today that it had established a partnership with Predictive Index, a behavioral assessment tool to revolutionize how the trucking industry develops and retains its talent.
“Our strategic partnership with Predictive Index is an industry-leading response to the elevate the data behind our decisions,” explained Tim Hindes, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Stay Metrics. “In 35 years of business, this is the first time I've seen a tool that truly optimizes talent and I’m excited to explore what this means for our industry as a whole.”
Already a $700 billion-dollar-industry, trucking companies are looking for new ways to elevate conversations and retention with their drivers. With 5.8% of jobs held in the trucking industry, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has cited that over 7 million are employed in the trucking industry and that number is only expected to grow with both individuals and companies now ordering both more online and demanding faster service. The unique partnership between Stay Metrics and Predictive Index will complement the ever-growing need for drivers to deliver when American needs it most.
Utilized for more than 8,000 employers, Predictive Index measures employee motivation to uncover the often hidden potential of employees. EFPA-certified, the assessments look to stimulus-responses and offer free-choice modeling to allow each employee’s answer to be infused with behavior and their own unique style. Answers give insight into commitment, opportunities for growth and retention, and how to best communicate, ensuring the right employees are in the correct positions.
“The transportation industry is experiencing an acute talent shortage. As older drivers retire, companies are struggling to attract the next generation and despite industry-wide salary increases, companies are still experiencing difficulty attracting and retaining top talent,” stated Mike Zani, CEO of Predictive Index. “By helping organizations identify the right behavioral and cognitive fits for key roles, PI helps organizations reduce turnover, predict candidate success, and make better hires.”
Focused on optimizing data and processes first, Stay Metrics is committed to elevating H.R. best practices and procedures before unveiling products featuring Predictive Index to clients. Stay Metrics believes the partnership has uncovered significant opportunities within the industry to raise effective leaders from within, while recruiting the best leaders outside the organization.
By helping companies to identify if the talent exists inside the company or recruitment is needed, the partnership illuminates how trucking companies can better identify which candidates will make the best salespeople, dispatchers, recruiters, and leaders.
