We are thrilled to see the amazing advancements in fleet safety, both from the standpoint of the vehicle and the willingness to focus on proper driver training. We give a bow to a few of many influencers of this: NHTSA, IIHS, NETS, NAFA, AFLA, fleet service providers — and fleet managers who insist on the best for their drivers. Having our drivers return home safely every night is our shared goal.
We do a fair amount of business travel and like all corporations look for ways to reduce expenses. To that end, Runzheimer has just released an excellent White Paper: Adapting to a Shifting Business Travel Landscape. If travel expenses are on your radar, the White Paper is a compelling read.
Finally, we are a pushover for Women in Fleet Management (WiFM) – check out Erin Gilchrist’s video and register for a WiFM webinar with LeasePlan’s CEO Mike Pitcher. He has written a very engaging book: The Seven eLements of Leadership. He thinks we should be having fun at work — I agree!
