With industry turnover at an all time high, it’s increasingly important to ensure the happiness of your drivers. Beyond awards and positive touchpoints, what’s the best way to show your drivers they’re appreciated? Holiday gifts are an easy way to let your drivers know how much you care!
Here are 10 Simple Gifts (with links) to help remind your drivers they’re your most valuable asset:
Whether driving through colder climates or late at night, a travel blanket can be an extremely useful gift for your valued drivers.
Nothing like a hot meal after a long day of driving, unfortunately that isn’t always an option for a driver. A portable microwave is both surprisingly affordable and useful.
Spending hours on the road isn’t always the most comfortable situation. A seat cushion is a gift your drivers will definitely use and appreciate.
While we all promote drivers make healthy choices, a homemade kale salad with grilled chicken and quinoa isn’t always readily available for a driver. Help make the occasional guilty lunch choice a little easier with a fast food gift card.
Drivers get to represent your company in style with custom Carhartt jackets. Not only stylish, but useful with blanket lining.
Just about everyone could use a new pair of sunglasses. A stylish pair of driving sunglasses are another useful gift option.
Sometimes a truck stop sink isn’t available and usually isn’t the optimal option for washing your clothes. Your drivers can wash their clothes more sanitarily on the road with this neat gift.
Sometimes we all forget a driver’s hands do a lot more than drive their trucks. A spare set of work gloves can be extremely handy.
A good audio book is always a nice change of pace from the radio. You can also get your drivers a subscription to a service, like Audible, so they have access to their choice of books.
A new toiletry bag is a gift that won’t go unused by your drivers. Upgrading this necessity is a great way to remind your drivers they’re appreciated.
A small gesture during the holiday season is a fantastic way to express your gratitude to your drivers and remind them they are valued members of your team!
Engaging your drivers and helping them feel a part of your fleet’s culture is critical to retaining your best drivers. Beyond small gestures like holiday gifts, driver awards are another great way to keep them engaged throughout the year.
