Commercial Vehicle Driver Associate Family Issues Assessment

The purpose of the present study addresses the need to determine the nature of the family and work environments (for drivers and their spouses/partners) and to determine ways to apply this information to programs of intervention and support useful to commercial vehicle companies. Specifically, there are five objectives for this project: (1) To more clearly define the working environment of long distance trucking, with particular attention to the relationship between this working environment and the driver’s family environment; (2) To determine the problems drivers have in developing and maintaining an effective and responsive family environment; (3) To assess the driver’s and spouse’s/partner’s perceptions and expectations of a family; (4) To identify family and work concerns where differences in driver and partner feelings or attitudes about work and family were statistically significant; and (5) To define the types of intervention materials/programs that will help trucking company management address family life issues of drivers, thus increasing employee retention.
