Recruit & Retain: Bestway Express: Finders keepers
Article from Commercial Carrier Journal
When Curt Singleton, director of safety and human resources for Bestway Express, joined the Vincennes, Ind.-based fleet 2½ years ago, the company was experiencing more than 90 percent driver turnover – a statistic in line with a recent American Trucking Associations survey. After researching solutions, Singleton determined the JOBehaviors compatibility assessment test would help select top-performing drivers upfront rather than go through the expensive weeding-out procedures later in the process. Singleton says the results exceeded expectations and resulted in lower turnover and more targeted recruiting.
Culling Turnover: Pre-employment assessment test helps Bestway Express find and keep the right driver
Resource Article from:
For many fleets, the cost of driver turnover is a cost of doing business. But for those in the know, staying ahead of the curve - and competition - by lowering
driver turnover rates means a healthier bottom line and increased profits.
"Absolutely", agrees Curt Singleton, director of safety and HR for Bestway Express, which operates more than 270 trucks while employinh more than 260
drivers. "With the cost of turnover pegged in the thousands of dollars for fleets, any double-digit decline in the fleet turnover rate, over the national average,
means a hefty increase to the bottom line." »

Hiring great drivers? Can you say JOBehaviors?
I really like numbers. Numbers manage business to some extent. My old buddy Harry Kowalchyk, co-founder of National Tractor Trailer School,
used to tell me all the time, "What gets measured gets managed."
I often wonder how many companies know the cost of a poor performing driver and what the operating cost difference is between a good driver
and the bottom 30 percent of drivers at any given company. What would it mean to the profitability of any organization if you could constantly avoid
the bottom 30 percent?»

Hiring & Rentention Strategies for
Resource Article from DayCare Hotline
Over the past 15 years, I’ve consulted with literally thousands of childcare center
directors on effective hiring and retention strategies. You would be amazed at how
many of them rely on gut instinct when making critical hiring decisions. You’d be
even more surprised at how many think they’re doing a great job…in spite of evidence
to the contrary.
Surprisingly, the directors relying most heavily on intuition can’t understand why
they’re constantly wrestling with high turnover and hard-to-manage staff. Still
more can’t understand why the person they loved in the interview on Friday wasn’t
the person who showed up for work Monday.
Don’t get me wrong. There are people with the rare gift for sizing up talent. The
problem is very few people have this gift and the odds are you aren’t one
of them. » Read More
