Driver recruitment and retention continues to be of critical concern to the foodservice distribution industry. To help foodservice distributors navigate this challenge, IFDA and Emily Moscato, PhD, of Saint Joseph’s University, collaborated on a whitepaper to map the issue. It brings together perspectives from human resources, managers, drivers, CDL schools, professional organizations, and expert voices.

Topics addressed in the report include:

  • Recruitment challenges, including perceived job image and physical requirements.
  • Recruitment best practices, including positioning, clear representation of the driver role, and reassessment of potentially exclusionary practices.
  • Retention opportunities focusing on building company culture, career advancement, and strategies that make retention a priority.
