The Women in Trucking Accelerate! Conference is taking place THIS WEEK, September 30th – October 2nd, in Dallas, TX, and the DriverReach team will be there in full force! With a jam-packed schedule of events taking place over the course of the 3-day event, we don’t want you to miss your opportunity to hear from our driver recruiting experts as they discuss topics ranging from recruiting to HR to sales and marketing and beyond. Will you join us for any or all of these sessions this week? We can’t wait to meet you at WIT Accelerate! Conference.
Breakout Session (Monday, September 30th @ 1:45pm): Wendy Bartz, Recruitment Services Director
Join Wendy on Monday, September 30th @ 1:45pm as she co-leads “Shifting Gears: Trends/Best Practices in the New Age of Recruiting”.
It’s no secret: The industry is battling a talent shortage that poses challenges for recruiters and supply chain managers alike. When the demand for goods outpaces the availability of drivers for delivery, what is the business (and consumer) impact?
Erica Pepe, Recruitment Evangelist, Employer Insights with Indeed, will provide the latest trends in truck driver recruitment from labor market experts at Indeed.com, and then will explain how companies are creatively growing and engaging the candidate pool of these hard-to-fill roles.
Then, DriverReach’s very own Wendy Bartz, Recruiting Services Director, will explain how to create a better applicant experience. In this breakout session, you’ll learn how to provide impactful human interactions from the very beginning, and how to utilize simple, modern technology to support your efforts.
