600 Dupré Employees Recognized for Superior Driver Performance – 2013 Green Road Fleet Elite Program Announced
GreenRoad™, owner of driver performance management technology, announced the recipients of the first annual Fleet Elite™ awards. In 2012, 600 Dupré drivers were recognized with this distinction as the best fleet drivers on the road. Fleet Elite status is awarded to GreenRoad drivers who maintain a GreenRoad Safety Score of 5 or less for the full 2012 calendar year, and log over 500 GreenRoad driving hours. In 2012, less than 5% of the global GreenRoad driver base attained Fleet Elite status.
“While we know that our drivers strive for excellence in safety, it is a great honor for 600, or over 60% of our total driver pool, to be recognized as the best of the best,” said Al LaCombe, Dupré’s Director of Safety.
The GreenRoad Fleet Elite is designed to provide internal motivation and recognition for best driver performance. Dupré will honor its 2012 Fleet Elite drivers at the upcoming quarterly safety meeting where each person will be recognized. Each Fleet Elite driver will receive a certificate and lapel pin to mark their achievement. GreenRoad’s technology-based driver performance management service provides drivers with real-time, in-vehicle feedback every trip, every mile.
A series of green, yellow and red lights in the vehicle notify the driver and the company of 5 risky events (speed, cornering, lane handling, braking, acceleration) that are tabulated to reveal a safety score. Driver behavior is measured using a sophisticated combination of a sensitive accelerometer, GPS data and advanced algorithms.
“Fleet Elite is designed to provide recognition that goes beyond company borders,” said Karen White, senior vice-president of customer solutions at GreenRoad. “Drivers from across the GreenRoad customer base are being recognized for superior performance and safe driving. And safe driving also means these drivers are maximizing their fuel efficiency and demonstrating superior eco-driving.”
