The trucking industry is facing an extreme shortage of drivers. It is estimated that there is currently a shortage of roughly 48,000 drivers. The shortage is expected to worsen. Because of this shortage, trucking companies are experiencing a rate of turnover of over 100%. The best way to hire an experienced driver is to look to competitors and entice their current employees to switch over. This is often done through sign-on bonuses averaging $5,000. One of our clients told us that, on average, it costs $25,000 to recruit, hire, and train a new driver.

If you are like many of the Healthcare CIOs I come into contact with through my LinkedIn group (Healthcare Unified Communications Forum), then you are probably faced with ever-increasing merger and acquisition activity. While consolidation in the Healthcare industry might make great business sense, and can benefit patients, it can wreak havoc with IT groups who must react quickly to new systems, new platforms, new technologies and new networks they “inherit” from these acquired properties. In an instant, you are expected to integrate the new platforms into your existing enterprise platforms and systems while also reporting back to the CFO on cost-savings initiatives to reduce the related, inherited expenses.
