Wellness to Truck Drivers
Hello truck company executive,
Your drivers are the most important resource you should invest in.
You know better than anybody else, that a good and responsible driver will be on time, drive carefully, take care of the truck and of course will make sure s/he delivers the goods in the trailer in the best shape and conditions.
There are telematics tools to monitor driver’s behavior. There are trucks’ sensors which alert in real-time if something is wrong. Yet, you can not monitor drivers’ emotions, sensations, thoughts and mood.
What is the secret of having loyal and engaged drivers? What is the secret of keeping them motivated?
