Workforce Development

Workforce Development Committee Meets for Third Time in 2018

The Workforce Development Committee presented its research and efforts at NRMCA’s annual ConcreteWorks in late September. Since its inception on January 1, the committee has featured four task groups, each concentrating on a challenge related to attracting and retaining mixers drivers and other staff. Those areas are: (1) researching the qualitative job qualities that retain mixer drivers; (2) learning and talent development paths for better retention; (3) developing partnerships with CDL schools; and (4) other third-party sources to attract and retain mixer drivers.

 

While most members are HR and talent development professionals, the committee welcomes others who can broaden its scope. It will “take a village” to address the serious workforce challenges the industry faces; we all have a stake in the game. The next meeting will be at NRMCA's 2019 Annual Convention in Tampa in March.

Download the 2018 Mixer Driver Recruitment and Retention Survey Report

The results of NRMCA's 2018 Mixer Driver Recruitment and Retention Survey show increased pressure on producers to maintain a healthy concrete delivery professional driver pool. It is visible in the reported three percent drop in the mixer driver population between January and December 2017. Secondly, 48 percent reported lost business because they did not have a driver to deliver the order, up 12 percent from 2017. Lastly, there was a 34 percent increase in respondents to the 2018 survey, perhaps illustrating a larger desire to better understand the challenge. Learn More...
