A new survey from Epic Vue delves into what it is that makes truck drivers decide to stay with their companies.
Here are the top reasons that drivers stay:
- Their company is respectful and kind to them. 37% of drivers say that the most important trait a trucking company can have to keep them around is courtesy and understanding.
- Their company allows them to be independent. Most drivers choose the trucking lifestyle because they like the freedom of the road — and 26% of drivers say that a trucking company that respects their independence is the most likely to keep them on as employees.
- Their company makes a genuine effort to retain their drivers. Whether this is through listening to suggestions from drivers or providing incentives to keep them, 25% say that this is the difference that keeps them from looking for another company.
