A MOTOR CARRIER WELLNESS PROGRAM: DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING

Motor carriers have experienced a shortage of drivers, leading to high turnover rates and the attendant costs of hiring and training new drivers. Two approaches to the driver shortage problem are recruiting and retention. While pay issues may dominate recruiting efforts, retention may depend more on other issues such as how drivers are treated by their employers. Some employers have reported favorable results with programs designed to aid employees in achieving and maintaining better health. This article describes the development of such a wellness program by a motor carrier.
