When people know they’re being monitored, they’re more conscientious about how they behave. Continuous driver monitoring of your employees can have a positive effect on driving behavior that ripples from your company to community. As part of a comprehensive safety policy, continuous driver monitoring confirms that you are actively taking measures to ensure the safety of your employees and to protect your company.
The best way to protect your company, employees and community is to encourage a culture of safety for everyone behind the wheel on behalf of your business. Do you have a safe culture or a safety culture?
Implementing new solutions often begs the question: How do we know if it’s working? With Qorta, our driver monitoring solution, you receive updates on your employee driving behavior as often as you choose. Additionally, research indicates that individuals typically modify their behavior for the better if they know that they’re being monitored in some way. This is known as the Hawthorne Effect.
Not only does our collection of driver data compiled over 20 years tell us that continuous driver monitoring is effective, but research also indicates that tools like ours start working as soon as they’re implemented.
It’s important to be clear with your employees about what you’re monitoring, what kind of data you’re collecting and what your expectations are. To create a culture where employees value safety, transparency and compliance, you need to level-set your intentions about the creation and implementation of your company safety policy.
Having a comprehensive driver safety policy is important, but only proves beneficial when clearly communicated, consistently enforced, and incentivized across the organization.
With Qorta, we help you make informed decisions by providing near real-time updates any time there’s a change in an employee MVR, enabling you to intervene as soon as possible with any employee who is at risk of falling outside your driver safety policy.
