ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Dan Baker, a nationally known speaker, teacher and consultant to the trucking industry, will head a three-part audio conference on how to retain a quality labor force.
Baker has worked throughout Canada and the U.S. with over 300 trucking companies and has helped carriers see where and how their operations are succeeding and failing.
This three part series will address topics including, “Dealing with today’s ‘new’ employee.” Baker will answer carriers’ questions on how to deal with drivers wanting everything now and will offer new ideas for management and training. This session will take place on Feb. 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The second session is called “Solving the people equation in trucking” and will take place on Mar. 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Baker will give examples of how to balance the system of trucking along with the human side.
The final session, “Understanding what makes people tick” will air on Apr. 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This session will help the employer take a look at common denominators that go into understanding people and what makes them do what they do.
After each conference, Baker will be available for two hours to answer questions via e-mail.
Each session costs $159 for Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) members and $189 for non-members with a $25 rebate for those who book all three sessions.
