There are a lot of events out there competing for your attention, but if you’re in the fleet management or recruiting business, it’s hard to find one that delivers better value than the Best Fleets to Drive For seminar series. That’s partly because it’s free. But it’s also because the information and ideas shared through these seminars are timely, invaluable and easy to implement. And I’m not just saying that because we’re a sponsor.

As the administrators of the TCA Best Fleets to Drive For program, CarriersEdge president Mark Murrell and his team analyze thousands of driver surveys and interview leading carriers on their driver-focused programs. Through this process over the past few years, Mark’s seen it all – the good and the bad. The Best Fleets seminar series, offered exclusively in Canada, shares the best practices (and some of the worst) employed by carriers that have participated in the program.

It’s a good way to identify emerging trends. This year, for example, Mark says “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. 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.”

During the half-day (and did I mention, free?) seminars, Mark will cover: 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.

Seminar dates are: May 13, Windsor, Ont.; May 14, Kitchener, Ont.; May 21, Saskatoon, Sask.; May 22, Winnipeg, Man.; May 27, London, Ont.; May 29, Toronto, Ont. (see you there); June 3, Calgary, Alta.; June 4, Edmonton, Alta.; June 5, Vancouver, B.C.; and June 12, Moncton, N.B. To register, call Judi at 905-530-2430 or e-mail
