Human Factors seminars to explore best H.R. practices

by Truck News

OTTAWA, Ont. — Trucking HR Canada is launching a new national seminar series highlighting best practices in human resources, which it says can be adopted by fleets of any size.

The Human Factors seminar series will present information on the latest HR trends, as well as related practical advice that can be applied by fleet managers as they deal with the challenges of recruiting, training and retaining the best employees, the organization announced.

“We will be working with partners across Canada to reach fleets in every region,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “The shortage of qualified drivers, shrinking labour pools, and increasing competition for younger workers all demand a greater focus on Human Resources management. These seminars will present information on underlying trends, as well as practical management strategies that can make a difference.”

The first of these seminars will be held Oct. 21 in partnership with the B.C. Trucking Association. Speakers will included Julie Burgess of Triton Transport, Patrick Lo of Canaan Shipping as well as Splinter.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Mike McCarron, president of Left Lane Associates and will run from 11:30 a.m. till 2 p.m. at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey, B.C. To register, go here.
