As more companies actively engage in practices that equalize the diversity of the work environment, it is just as important to hire diverse candidates. Today, recruiting for a diverse workforce, companies must prepare to be creative, to have multiple recruiting campaigns, and leave no trailer closed.
To attract women to the transportation industry, we are taking a multi-faceted approach to fill the rising gaps of diversity in trucking. The hope is to attract a variety of candidates in today’s challenging transportation market. As diversity becomes less of an option and more of an expectation, the public is encouraging companies to change their mindset and make the commitment to consciously make day-to-day decisions that cultivate a culture that promotes diversity.

She will speak to a myriad of creative recruiting and sourcing techniques and advertising suggestions which can contribute to provide a diverse workforce, regardless of company size. Attend this session to:
  • Discover real insight to create a recruitment plan
