Sleep Apnea Testing: Trucking Industry Needs to Demand Standardization

2019-11-14T22:52:47+00:00

Sleep Apnea Testing: Trucking Industry Needs to Demand Standardization By: Barb Kornowske, PTI Director of Human Resources, PHR Our greatest concern is the safety of our employees and the motoring public. While they admit to being tired, drivers will often attribute their fatigue to their lifestyle in the truck and not sleep apnea. Since 2011, Paper Transport, Inc. (PTI) has provided company paid sleep apnea testing. Drivers who take advantage of this benefit do so because their D.O.T. physician states testing is needed or the driver self-reports (i.e., he or she believes they may have an issue). Self-reporting drivers are few [...]

The Best Employee Wellness Initiative

2019-11-14T22:56:27+00:00

The Best Employee Wellness Initiative By: Barb Kornowske, PTI Director of Human Resources, PHR A healthy workforce = a healthy company, but how do you get there? With the best of intentions in mind, employers are dreaming up wellness initiatives in hopes to lure their workforces into improving health and engagement. However, their employees are not taking the bait. In a 2013 study featured in Forbes*, 86% of employees don't participate in wellness initiatives. When considering a conversion of your conference room used by 99% of your employees into a yoga studio for only 14% of your employees, doesn't that make [...]

Where Are All the Good Paying Jobs?

2019-11-20T00:36:12+00:00

Where Are All the Good Paying Jobs? By: Joe Shefchik, PTI VP Business Development and Solutions Perhaps we're asking the wrong question about jobs and the workforce. While capacity in the trucking industry has had some solid growth in the past year, there are major headwinds on the horizon. With an electronic logging mandate taking effect in November of 2017 and the Federal Drug Clearinghouse making its way to becoming law, I have strong confidence the trucking industry will once again be struggling to find employees willing to take a job paying from $50,000-70,000 per year. I have some recent experience [...]

4 Payroll Improvements That Impact Driver Turnover

2019-11-14T23:24:24+00:00

4 Payroll Improvements That Impact Driver Turnover By: John Renier, PTI Controller In trucking, there are three basic factors that drive the success of any company that affect driver turnover: Get them rolling, get them paid, and get them home. These three items must work together and if any one of these elements is out of sync, then it can have a big impact on driver turnover. Let's take a closer look at getting them paid. When people think about what causes driver turnover, they tend to focus simply on the rates that drivers are paid or tacking on a huge [...]

Why Trucking Needs to Get Social

2019-11-14T23:27:07+00:00

Why Trucking Needs to Get Social By: Ben Schill, PTI Director of Operations I've always considered myself relatively technologically savvy. After all, I grew up during the monumental shift from business applications performed with typewriters to computers. In college, e-mail was gaining speed. By my senior year, no more snail-mail letters were sent home and communication with friends across the country without racking up huge phone bills was big. Savvy, right? Then came social media. Perhaps it was turning 40 this year that I realized I am now a generation removed from many of those with whom I work and I [...]
