OKLAHOMA CITY (March 7, 2016) — Many people may have heard that a little competition in the workplace is encouraged due to it’s power to enable motivation and productivity. According to Psychology Today a little competition increases chemicals like testosterone and that gives employees drive to achieve goals. Fleet business drivers may not be suited up businessmen in a confined office space, but that doesn’t mean they can’t incorporate a little fun into their work, too. Today, US Fleet Tracking US Fleet Tracking provides tips on how to have a fun workplace competition with GPS trackers!
There are two different styles of competition to choose from and they are as follows:
1) All Against All: In this competition style management would be putting all of their fleet drivers against each other to see which one of them can perform the best.
The manager of the team gets to decide what it is the workers will be “fighting” to be the best at. For example, management could chose to use the reports generated from the data in their GPS trackers to see which driver stayed within the speed limit the most days out of the month, or which one kept their idling down, etc. Management could also utilize the alerts feature of the GPS trackers to make it even more challenging. For example, management could decide that the winner of the competition is the driver that caused the LEAST amount of alerts to come through.
Some inexpensive, winner worthy options for prizes could be anything from a free lunch, a gift card or something like letting the winner put a pie in the boss’s face! There’s just something so satisfying about that last one, even if the boss is really nice.
2) A Collaborative Effort: In this competition style everyone on the fleet team would be working together to achieve one, common goal.
Just as mentioned before, mangers could choose to use the reports generated from the data in their GPS trackers. The difference would be that a company wide goal would be set for all drivers to meet such as “go 30 days without anyone going over speed limits”. Another example might be that everyone keeps their idling down to a set number of minutes each week for a month. In addition, alerts from the GPS trackers can also be used to spice things up. Management could set a limit on alerts and test all drivers as a team to see if they can stay below the number decided upon.
Some prizes for a whole fleet team may be a bit more expensive than a competition with only one winner, so creativity may be needed. If it’s in the budget, an office wide pizza party could do the trick. If that’s too much to spend, managers could try something more simple and daring like having the boss shave his head if the team meets their goals!
Whatever is decided, it’s important to remember the idea is to have fun and there may be no better way to incorporate company equipment such as the GPS trackers already being used daily!
