ATRI: Recruiting Female Drivers Could Make Trucking Safer

Female truckers will quit over poorly maintained equipment or the lack of a safety culture. They care about things such as whether a dispatcher considers the safety of locations to which they are sent and factors like bad weather conditions, according to Stay Metrics, which counsels carriers and shippers on driver retention.

Collecting data about how female drivers perceive safety is new for the industry, said Voie, who managed recruitment and retention programs for Schneider National, a large carrier and logistics supplier.

“Twelve years ago, when I started Women in Trucking, nobody had any data on gender, not even the insurance companies,” she said. “Carriers are finally recognizing the value women bring and are actually focusing on recruiting women drivers where in the past they tried to be gender-, age- and race-neutral.”

Stay Metrics Chart Breaks Down Driver Turnover Over Time

February 25, 2019

Stay Metrics has created a new driver retention tool that serves as an indicator for trends in early-stage driver turnover.

The Stay Days Table is a “survivor chart” that breaks down turnover by showing how many newly hired drivers remain throughout the year at specific milestones after their date of hire. The chart shows the percentage of drivers remaining in 30 day increments up to a full year and allows Stay Metrics to follow specific cohorts of drivers and how well carriers are retaining them over time.

The table makes clearer than previous models that early driver turnover is an industry-wide problem. For example, as many as 60% of drivers hired in January 2018 did not make it a single year with their new carrier. As shown in the chart, retention trends remained consistent throughout the year so similar results are expected for each month’s hiring group.
