“Retaining Ruan’s team members, especially our professional drivers, begins with building relationships and teamwork. Our annual employee engagement survey process allows team members at all levels to be heard. The survey, and the important team discussions that follow, creates an opportunity for honest dialogue about how we can improve our workplace and be the preferred employer we strive to be.”

The Challenges

The trucking industry is plagued with an average of 95 percent turnover among employees. But Ruan refused to let this stop the company from building an engaged workplace.
