JOLIET, IL – A company that focuses on compensation planning and design for the trucking and logistics industry is developing a survey focusing on truck driver pay in Canada and the U.S.
The Prosperio Group says the survey will address the need for improvement in the timeliness and accuracy of data on truck driver wages in fleets of a variety of sizes.
The survey data are expected to assist human resource managers, fleet CEOs, and other executives in making better decisions about driver compensation levels and methods, as well as in anticipating changes that impact pricing models, according to the company.
“Historically, managers have been challenged to make valid decisions based on survey data that is released long after the survey was conducted. The Truck Driver MeasureUp Compensation Survey will address this need by introducing a new standard of frequency, quarterly reporting, to reduce lengthy delays of research data release,” the company said in an announcement.
The first edition of the Truck Driver MeasureUp Compensation Survey is planned for the current quarter of the year and will use actual W-2 payroll results rather than self-reported averages or medians.
