Meet Critical Hiring Needs With Innovative Workforce Solutions
With transportation and logistics talent shortages reaching crisis proportions, Hire Velocity offers proven transport recruitment solutions to address the challenges of high turnover, leadership innovation, risk definition and management, and a rapidly retiring workforce. We focus on addressing your critical talent needs with strategic recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), executive search, and talent advisory.
Talent Shortages Drive Industry-Specific Transport Recruitment Solutions
The American Trucking Association (ATA) estimates a current shortage of more than 30,000 drivers and expects that number to reach 175,000 by 2024 if current trends hold. These mushrooming driver shortages combined with impending attrition due to retirement and increasing freight volumes will create an industry need for 89,000 new drivers every year.
Added to that shortage is the need for innovative leaders and industry professionals who can address the challenges of acquisitions and consolidations, retirement, overregulation, geopolitical unrest, technological advances, volatile exchange rates, and changing stakeholder expectations.
At Hire Velocity, we help clients meet critical talent needs by seeking out strong leaders with the skills and experience needed to solve problems and lead organizations forward. We leverage both our knowledge of the transportation and logistics industry and our decades of recruiting experience to develop a reliable talent pipeline and strengthen both internal and external hiring processes.
Meeting Tomorrow’s Talent Challenges Today
Nearly half of CEOs in the transportation and logistics industry plan to reassess their approach to branding, marketing, communications, and risk management according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. Organizational leaders will need to address customer expectations for deeper online and mobile solutions along with revitalized customer experiences. As top talent increasingly expresses a desire to work for companies that share their values, organizations will also need to re-evaluate employer branding, cultural fit, and technological solutions to align hiring initiatives with corporate mission.
We help you meet these evolving customer and employee expectations with innovative hiring solutions, strategic assessments, and holistic implementations that will address your talent challenges both now and in the future.
