Weekly Update: Please Complete Mixer Driver Recruitment and Retention Survey

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Since last week’s E-NEWS plea for producers to participate in the survey, the response rate has grown from 50 to 105 companies. Thank you very much, but we still have a steep hill to climb to equal the 183 Producer members that participated in 2018. Currently, the survey represents 13% of the estimated mixer driver pool; last year it represented 26%.

While we still have 10 days to collect your data, NRMCA can say that the mixer driver horizon appears to be a bit brighter. Last year’s survey found the driver pool shrunk 3%; so far this year there is a 4% growth. Total left (quit and released) is 23%; last year the number was 30%. New hires have, and continue this year, to represent approximately 30% driver pool. This year you told us that 10% of them were rehires. Over the past four years, approximately 33% hired 18-21 year old drivers; this year the number grew to 39%.

Nevertheless, each year for the past five years almost 50% of respondents walked away from business because they did not have a mixer driver to deliver an order. Therefore, PLEASE have your appropriate person gather your driver employment data and fill out the anonymous survey. Just give us the numbers and we will run your calculations. There are 30 questions: approximate estimate to fill out the form is only 12 minutes. Help us help you!

The survey closes on Friday, June 28. For more information, contact Eileen Dickson at
