2017 Transportation Spotlight Report

2017 Transportation Spotlight Report

2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of HireRight’s Employment Background Screening Benchmark Survey.

The report provides valuable insights on key industry trends, as well as, a source for you to compare and leverage your peers’ best practices to help you enhance and strengthen your current screening program.

Here are a few highlights from the Report:

Top Screening Challenges
Reducing time-to-hire remains the number one employment screening challenge for the second year in a row, as the industry continues to face widespread shortages, high turnover and churn.

Recruitment Strategies
The growing shortage of drivers is triggering companies to implement new tactics to bolster driver recruitment and to attract a more diverse audience.

A noticeable shift is occurring away from traditional tactics such as online job boards (down 10% from last year) to social networking (up 13% this year).

Primary Reasons Drivers Are Leaving
Drivers leaving for better pay was reported by a greater number of respondents from larger companies, those with 500+ employees (68%) vs. smaller companies (40%).

Retirement continues to be a major contributing factor for the bulk of future driver demand (4% increase over last year).
