R & R Trucking, Inc. Cracks the Code to Truck Driver Retention
Four Key Reasons Team Truck Drivers Stay at R & R
JOPLIN, Mo. NOVEMBER 16, 2016
While many large truckload carriers are experiencing 100 percent driver turnover, R & R Trucking, Inc. believes they have cracked the code to truck driver retention. In reviewing driver longevity statistics, R & R discovered their driver retention was far better than the industry norm.
“When accounting for all drivers – for all the fleets – we found that six years was the average length of stay for our drivers. At the point they reached seven years, we found that over a third of our fleet had been here 11-plus years,” said Vonda Cooper, Vice President of Operations, R & R Trucking, Inc.
After interviewing several driver teams, the company attributed R & R driver longevity to four key reasons: a family atmosphere in the workplace, superior driver pay, more home time and employees' sense of pride.
According to R & R Vice President of Administration, Kevin McKelvy, a major company philosophy is maintaining a workplace with a family atmosphere. “Our management, non-driving staff and drivers know each other,” said McKelvy. “It is not uncommon to see our CEO and other management eating lunch in the drivers' lounge with our drivers.”
Driver teams at R & R likewise stressed the importance of working for a company where there is a family atmosphere.
“It’s wonderful – whenever I call in to talk to my dispatcher, or the shop, or almost anybody here, they know me by my first name,” said team driver Susan Hall. “They even know my dog’s name and keep treats for him.”
Veteran driver Lee Summers said, “We are a family here. I promise you we could not have stayed here 19 years if it wasn’t family oriented.”Read Entire Article
