While all fleet departments are critical to an organization’s overall success, the truth is that—when siloed away from one another—they are much less effective than when working together. To address the challenges of a modern trucking fleet, fleets need to turn their siloed departments into a single, cohesive machine.
When departments like Safety, Operations, and Recruiting work together it is easy to implement steps to make your whole fleet safer.
3 Steps to Implement Today
When these disparate departments come together, the following steps can help reduce liability, improve retention, and prevent crashes:
- Add follow-on development plans to your onboarding process
While some aspects of a fleet’s onboarding program must be standardized, when Recruiting, Safety, and Operations share data surrounding a new hire they can add tailored training or driver meetings to their onboarding plan that best meet their new hires’ needs.
- Target the right drivers for recruitment
When a fleet’s Recruiting team coordinates with their Operations and Safety teams to define responsibilies and success criteria, recruiters can more easily target candidates that are likely to be successful in the role.
- Build accountability into their training
By giving their Safety team insight into how the Operations team is carrying out training plans, fleets can build accountability into their training system, making it more effective and ultimately reducing crashes.
