Are you worried about driver engagement and turnover levels? CILT’s Bus & Coach Driver Shortage Survey results suggest that enhanced rewards, improved industry image, increased corporate social responsibility and improved relations between employers and employees are part of the solution.

It is also interesting to note this article in the Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epistemology, which indicates that in Pennsylvania bus drivers suffer the highest rates of depression of all professions studied. Though just one study – and there are regional variations to consider – it is worth considering from a UK perspective.

Can technology offer a solution? From virtual route training to managing meetings and ways to identify and reward high performance, we believe technology has a huge role to play in improving all driver interactions with their employer.
