Hiring independent contractors to be your company’s delivery and/or courier drivers certainly has its benefits, both for a company and the contractors. Some of these benefits include, but are not limited to: Flexible schedules, while reducing a company’s overall costs and making the best use of resources. That said, while there are numerous benefits like those mentioned above, there is also no denying that the turnover rate in this field can be high. As an example, a recent report on CNBC said that after a year of driving, Uber only retains about 4% of their drivers. Why is that? What causes high turnover?
Our team at DDI has observed many issues that negatively impact turnover rates, and works diligently to alleviate them. Listed below are three related and common issues, and how we can help.
- Recruiting: Are you focusing on attracting the right talent for your company? With over 5,000 driver partners in our network, we take on the recruiting responsibility (and all that goes along with it) so you don’t have to. We recruit drivers specific to your company’s needs. Your team will only meet with and choose from the best 10% (approximately) candidates we generate, which will save you time. You can also rest easy knowing that our recruiting process is done with 100% compliance.
- Competition: An independent contractor looking for a flexible driving gig has countless options these days, way more than even 5 years ago. So how do you, as a company, stand out? We highlight your benefits, setting you apart.
- Company Culture: These days, company culture is more important than ever and in this field, is often a challenge. Many things can contribute to bad company culture, such as not being recognized for good work or tenure, dealing with bad operators, earnings falling short of expectations, and so on. If company culture isn’t fulfilling a driver’s needs, they may look to a competitor or leave the field entirely. This is why it’s important to look for the right partnerships with your drivers.
At DDI, we offer various solutions to help your company attract and retain the right drivers. Ultimately, this will save you time and will allow you to focus on what is really important…
