Driver retention is big for Sisbro
Driver retention is an important part of the trucking industry. Sisbro works hard to retain our drivers as we really listen to them and pay attention to their needs and expectations. We advise our recruiters to be realistic and honest with potential candidates as they develop relationships with these drivers.
Maintaining realistic expectations is key
Sisbro looks at our drivers as a client. It’s really about expectations and the highest turnovers happen when unmet expectations surface. We prepare potential drivers for the lifestyle change they’re about to experience, such as spending most of their days in a truck cab and waking up early. Expectations should be made clear when it comes to pay as well. Driving for Sisbro means you can get the money you earned, faster. There’s no delay, no service charge, and no worries about the paycheck coming through thanks to our rock-solid financials. Sisbro drivers also have the opportunity to earn bonuses based on performance. These bonuses are very achievable—just ask our drivers!
Home time and preferred lanes
We ask our drivers for their input and we really get to know them so that we can be sure they get the home time they desire. There is an opportunity for the driver to ask for more miles, a change in runs, or more home time. In the long run it’s really up to the driver on which needs are their priority.
We offer more choices to our drivers than the typical carrier in America. Whatever your preference we do our best to keep you in the region that you want while still ensuring you receive your ideal home time. Check out our open lanes here.
Sisbro drivers said they enjoyed open-door communication policies with management as well. Speak to your Fleet Manager, someone in management, or even our general manager Glenn Bemis when you feel the need. It’s our priority to make sure drivers are heard loud and clear. We understand that workplace environments and dispatch offices make a difference in terms of a driver’s experience with the company. The first thing you see every day is operations. You see the Fleet Manager; you see their attitude. That’s why we work so well together. We see the positive and manage the negatives.
Sisbro offers our drivers 100 percent paid insurance premiums regardless of single or family coverage. As a family-oriented company, we treat our employees like family and value their daily contributions toward making our company a continued success. We want to reward our employees for their commitment to our team, and one of the ways we do that is by providing excellent insurance benefits.
The ability to grow, adapt and find new opportunities in a company is an important aspect you should consider when looking for a job at a truck driving company. Being able to transition to a new role or move up in a company helps when lifestyle and family situations change throughout the course of your career. It’s important to look into what opportunities Sisbro has to offer now and in the future.
Sisbro’s driver turnover is much lower than industry standards because of our culture of respect, trust, and open communication. We provide our drivers the strength, capacity, and power of a large corporation, with the personal connection and convenience of a hometown carrier.
