MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge has announced the schedule for its popular 2014 Best Fleets to Drive For seminar series. The online training company developed and administers the Best Fleets to Drive For program for the Truckload Carriers Association.
During the evaluation process, organizers collect thousands of driver surveys and examine programs offered by leading fleets in the US and Canada that provide the best workplaces for professional drivers. During the seminar series, Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge, shares some of those best practices.
Admission to the half-day seminars is free of charge and attendees leave with an armful of tips and information they can easily and immediately apply to their own operations.
“The fleets that participated in the 2014 edition of Best Fleets to Drive For have really stepped up their game in terms of programs for their drivers,” said Murrell. “With increasing focus on performance management, driver efficiency, and work/life balance, this year’s fleets provided us plenty of exciting things to share in the seminar series.”
Topics covered will include: how technology is changing the work experience for drivers; what drivers want to see in a bonus program; the connection between public image and driver retention; and the new standard for wellness. The seminar series is sponsored in part by Truck News.
Dates include: May 13, Windsor, Ont.; May 14, Kitchener, Ont.; May 21, Saskatoon, Sask.; May 22, Winnipeg, Man.; May 27, London, Ont.; May 29, Toronto, Ont.; June 3, Calgary, Alta.; June 4, Edmonton, Alta.; June 5, Vancouver, B.C.; and June 12, Moncton, N.B.
