Attracting and Retaining a Modern Workforce – Alberta Workshop Series

  • February 18 - February 19
  • 1:00 pm - 12:00 pm

Trucking HR Canada and Alberta Motor Transport Association are pleased to host a series half-day workshops for small, medium and large fleets to help them optimize their recruitment and retention practices. The trucking and logistics sector continues to face a shortage of skilled workers, which presents a significant risk to the future success of trucking companies across Canada. As the labour shortage grows it will become essential to optimize your recruitment and retention strategies and learn how to access diverse workforces that have not traditionally been included the trucking industry. In this workshop you will learn more about:

• Recruitment and Retention best practices
• Best practice sharing with other medium to large fleets
• Recruitment strategies for hard to fill positions
• Retention strategies to engage employees and reduce turnover
• Promoting career options and building career awareness of trucking & logistics opportunities
• How to tap into hidden labour pools
• How Artificial Intelligence and business analytics is currently a game changer and can help you stay a step ahead of the competition
