About Stay Metrics

Carriers have been hiring expensive human resources consultants and workforce experts to solve their turnover problems for years with limited success. What works in one industry doesn’t always work in another. No one was asking drivers the right questions and no one was considering what makes driving such a unique industry.

After years of working in the industry and improving the experiences of drivers one company at a time, Tim Hindes and Kurt Ladow decided it was time to expand their impact. They teamed up with top researchers in behavioral psychology, management and organizational culture to create a rewards and recognition platform that is easy to implement and promotes a culture where drivers feel valued.

With a research-informed approach to retention and recruiting problems they have seen impressive results that are surprising even to industry veterans. The team is proud to be both changing corporate cultures and improving the experiences of drivers across the continent.
