Your zero-regret new hire will have a clean driving record, a clean bill of health (including drug tests) and if you ask them to use their own vehicle, they’ll need valid insurance too.
Some industries will also need extras: restaurant delivery drivers may need cash handling/customer service experience while freight truck drivers will need a specialty license.
Top tip: Hire candidates you can grow with by making sure their personal career goals align with your company's mission.
