GPS tracking can mean great things for fleet management. Although drivers may perceive it with annoyance, seeing the employee tracking as a way of being suspiciously monitored, there are numerous benefits to both the drivers and the company when it comes to GPS vehicle tracking. So how do you get drivers on your side, when it comes to introducing an employee GPS tracking system?
To build trust with your drivers, show them that the system has multiple benefits. Explain that it will:
Give all of your drivers a run-through of exactly what data the GPS tracking system will be recording and what you’re going to be doing with that information. Make it clear that you’re not spying on the drivers, your goal is to improve the efficiency of your fleet. As improvements are made thanks to the software, make sure to give your drivers updates so they trust in the technology and can also see its value.
Let employees feel like their voice is being heard by running a Q&A session, be that in a meeting or online. Drivers will undoubtedly have questions about the introduction of a GPS tracking system, so make sure to give them a platform to do so. It may also be worthwhile to introduce a selection of FAQs, which answer common questions like “is this legal?” (yes) and “will I be blamed if it malfunctions?” (no). It’s also worthwhile showing employees how the system fits into your company policy too.
