With the U.S. unemployment rate at 4.1%, the job market is red hot and many managers are finding it difficult to keep top talent from going to competitors or other industries. Two solutions stand out that employers can use to keep their valued employees: opportunity and engagement. “The majority of companies do a poor job of laying out an attractive career path for their people—a career path that will foster growth and learning,” says Fortune magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Clifton Leaf in the February 2018 issue. “Engaged employees are more efficient and effective, more customer-focused and creative at work, and take fewer sick days,” writes Patty Gaul, a writer and editor for the Association of Talent Development in the September 2017 issue of td.

This webinar will explore the benefits of offering career paths and professional development opportunities to your driving, as well as non-driving, employees, and will provide both managers and executives tips for building a satisfied and engaged workforce. Finalists from The Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest have discovered practices that help turn training challenges into opportunities for employee career growth, and take aways from what they are doing will be shared. You will also hear the experience of a truckload carrier that has been training over 200 non-driving employees through TCA’s Truckload Academy Corporate Subscription platform, and see a demo of how the system works.

Key topics to be explored include:

  • The benefits of e-learning
  • What is needed to support continual learning at all levels
  • What courses are available within the subscription model
  • How the learning management system works

This interactive program will provide opportunities for you to ask questions.
