Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2012
COMPANY PROFILE The Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council 2010 Environmental Scan points to a community perception of the industry as a dangerous place to work, highlighting fatigue and the high media pro le of workplace accidents or incidents as damaging to the attractiveness of a career in transport. Yet many employees of the industry regard it as a rewarding and enjoyable career path. Attracting young drivers and retaining older drivers is essential to industry sustainability. With a workforce expected to increase to 10,000 drivers by May 2015, where 53.3 per cent are aged 45 and over and will inevitably consider retirement, companies will need to be agile to meet the changing needs of this market as well as understanding the needs of younger drivers. Providing a more safe and exible work environment that meets the demands of the workforce by adopting safe practices and effective workforce planning is imperative to creating an attractive workplace for current and new employees and, ultimately, improving productivity. Chandler Macleod's specialist Transport and Logistics business offers workforce, recruitment and consulting services aimed at attracting and retaining a range of employees for the industry, complemented by dedicated expertise in workforce planning and safety.
