Driver Recruiting And Retention Strategies featuring Jason Crowell

Driver Recruiting And Retention Strategies featuring Jason Crowell

November 4, 2020

In this episode, Scott talks with Jason Kent Crowell from Brady Trucking about the recruiting evolution and how you can attract a fleet of high-quality drivers, even in the midst of the ever-changing supply and demand curve of 2020.

This is done through creating real, driver-centric recruiting ads and videos; providing a realistic job preview to potential candidates; and reaching drivers where they exist in the world: truck stops, in their cabs, and on their portable devices.

Our blog has written responses to some of Jason's work; you can find those posts here:
