Driver Recruiting & Retention Workshop Updated
The Driver Recruiting and Retention workshop has been updated to include a module on “Community Based Recruiting”. CBR includes identification of community groups (houses of worship, ethnic community organizations and centers, local markets in ethnic neighborhoods, etc.) that can be excellent locations to recruit drivers because of the existing communication networks they can offer to get the word to potential driver recruits. Operations is also working on a “driver opportunity comparison” spreadsheet that will allow an Agent to provide a driver candidate with an analysis of the opportunity with Evans as compared their current arrangement. This will assist the driver to remember all the advantages of signing on with Evans once they leave the interview.
August 23, 24 & 25
October 25, 26 & 27
Topics will be those that the Agents indicate interest in attending (Business Strategy and Planning, Driver Recruiting and Retention, Customer Service or Sales at the Terminal Level). Kim will be sending the course options to all Agents and soliciting their interest level. Depending on interest levels, the course topics will be chosen.
