Employee engagement in transport and logistics

Build a culture that works for all your people

Leaders in the transport and logistics industry face unique people challenges. Attracting and retaining properly qualified people is a major obstacle, and the talent pool has significantly declined over the past few years.

And, with large ‘deskless’ workforces, organisations in the transport and logistics sector often struggle to reach and engage all their people.

WorkBuzz helps address these challenges and more – using accessible surveys and regular employee listening to drive engagement.

The importance of employee listening

A perfect storm created by Covid-19, The Great Resignation, Brexit, IR35, skills shortages, an ageing workforce, and the cost-of-living crisis has seen the number of employees in the transport and logistics industry consistently fall over the past few years.

The ensuing war for talent will only be won by organisations that have a strong employee listening strategy. Running regular employee surveys and listening closely to your people gives you a true view of how your workforce feels – and provides the insights you need to assess and improve the drivers of employee engagement.




“We chose WorkBuzz because we wanted to start gathering feedback from new starters, and for our exit surveys to become more data driven. Before, we had HRBPs and HR admins conducting exit surveys on an ad hoc basis, but we didn’t have the resources to survey every single person who left the business”
