B2B Event ... SERCO Contractors Forum

Our CSR-Partner SERCO set another great example of their commitment to road safety and to keeping their eco-system safe. SERCO organized as part of their 'Zero Harm Week 2021' the SERCO Contractors Forum. At our first physical event in a very long time we worked with the delegates on:

* Keeping an eye on your current transport providers
* Minimum requirements for driver competencies
* Employees escalation process on buses & driver competency
* Vehicle inspections – main items to look for and the items that might get missed

We are grateful for the contributions of our CSR-Partners STS and SWVL to our part of the discussions.
Watch this space, as SERCO will hold Contractor Forums on a regular basis, drilling down on subjects of particular interest to their service providers. 

Driver anxiety ... 'calming music' playlist & webinar

As we reported in our earlier newsletter. we teamed up with our CSR-Partner Volkswagen on a study to understand driver anxiety. We learned not only, that 84% of motorists face anxiety, but also that 'calming music' can play a role in overcoming it. Volkswagen teamed up with anghami to produce and share a 'calming music' playlist

Besides calming music, there is series of other remedies, like: 
* Think about something uplifting and positive
* Engage in breathing exercises
* Someone to talk about it
* Speak to my passengers

Volkswagen reached out to Lighthouse Arabia and Dr. Saliha Afridi PsyD (US) Clinical Psychologist held a webinar to give motorists practical tips + tricks of how to rationalize and to overcome driver anxiety.
