The research also suggested that drivers who preferred a percentage split arrangement have driven for more carriers, according to Stay Metrics.
Ultimately, the research pointed to a correlation between perceived input into one’s pay and pay satisfaction, with drivers who felt they had input also having more satisfaction.
“How someone is paid is as important as what they are paid,” said Tim Judge, director of research at Stay Metrics. “I think paying based on customer charge leads drivers to believe that their pay is fair, because it shows an alignment between what the carrier gets and what they get."
Stay Metrics is a recruiting and retention consulting company aimed specifically at truck drivers. It uses research and behavioral psychology to gather and interpret data on drivers.
