The Road Haulage Forum uses creative ideas to tackle the problem of employees after their training. Training is vital to make good haulage sector's skills shortage and to ensure efficiency and compliance. However, the threat of poaching is deterring many employers from investing in raising levels of competence in their staff. This is why the Road Haulage Forum's Training Sub-Group is seeking bids to undertake a major study into how employers' investment in training can be protected. The project will be managed by the Road Haulage and Distribution Training Council.
