It's the way of the future.
It's a tough issue. Where do we cross the line between your individual right to privacy and your employer's right to know specific things that could be detrimental to your performance or public safety? We've got to find a working balance, where we're not being intrusive, but we're able to learn those things that might be indicative of problematic behavior.
At Schneider, 'Safety First and Always' is our primary core value. We moved forward with the Atlas system to keep our drivers more safe and comfortable. The Atlas Seat Marking System provides an opportunity for our drivers to use the full value of their seat, whereby drivers feel better, perform better and are less fatigued. We knew we had succeeded when we saw 114 fewer lost-time injuries. At the start of the program, our objective was simply to help our drivers, and the financial impact was less clear. Now after six months, we are confident that we have seen a favorable return on our investment.
