With Cisco Live just around the corner, we are packing up and heading for Las Vegas! It has been a year since the last Cisco Live, and we could not be more excited about this year’s event.
We are only a few days away from our Healthcare webinar, "How Healthcare Providers Can Improve Patient Satisfaction Through the Contact Center." Mark D. McNeill, Vice President – Healthcare UC Solutions for ISI Telemanagement Solutions, will host this event along with our guest speaker, Raun Williams, IT Security & Support Supervisor at Freeman Health Systems.
Cisco Live offers various ways for users to enhance their knowledge of the Cisco ecosystem and the solutions provided by Cisco partners through the Village Theater sessions. "Theaters in each partner village will provide the opportunity to hear from partner subject matter experts during scheduled presentations that complement what visitors will see and do in the village."
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.
