When was the last time you thought about Workplace Culture, especially around driver retention? It's time to make a change. For the first time ever, “Driver Shortage” is the number 1 critical issue in the trucking industry, according to ATRI’s 2017 report! Over the last 13 years, the trucking industry’s top 10 critical issues include “Driver Shortage” and “Driver Retention” 19 times (15 of which were top 5 critical issues).
Glostone offers three types of Driver Retention programs headed by the legend, Mike Meredith. Why are we different? Because of Mike's experience: Director of Professional Development of Haney Truck Line for 10 years, Vice President-State Relations of the American Trucking Associations for 6 years, and President and CEO of the Oregon Trucking Associations for 21 years. Mike understands how to talk to drivers, trucking regulation knowledge, understands best-practice organizational culture, and has helped motor carriers and drivers for many years.
Effective communication and listening is the most important element for a driver to feel appreciated, respected and a valuable member of the team. It’s often the difference between a driver being content in a job or looking for a new one.

What to Expect:
Exit interviews fit into the separation stage of employees. This stage spans from the moment an employee becomes disengaged until their departure from the organization. An off-boarding process allows both the employer and employee to properly close the existing relationship so that company materials are collected, administrative forms are completed, knowledge base and projects are transferred or documented, feedback and insights are gathered through exit interviews, and any loose ends are resolved.
Exit Interviews can be a valuable tool to improve employee retention. We conduct a customized and comprehensive phone Exit Interview with each designated employee. This service can be in conjunction with our Basic service or a standalone service.
Finding out what the issues are is the first step to step to solving them. We work with your management team to customize an Employee Satisfaction Survey that offers a method to collect and analyze information from your most important asset, your employees. Survey data can uncover ordinarily hidden information that can help improve your company.
We are excited to have the legend, Mike Meredith, to head our Driver Retention solution. Mike's experience includes:
