A Winning Strategy

Last month, we added a twist to this column and asked you, our loyal readers and partners, to provide answers to the following questions.

  1. What was your greatest accomplishment in 2015?
  2. If you could change anything within your Safety and Fleet Department, what would that be?
  3. What is your number one goal for 2016 as it relates to your Safety and Fleet Department, and how do you plan to achieve the desired results?

Of the three questions, number two generated the most interest. And not surprisingly, the top three answers to that particular question were:

  • Increase the budget for the Safety and Fleet Department.
  • Decrease the number of injuries related to motor-vehicle crashes.
  • Decrease the number of motor-vehicle crashes.
