MICROLISE DRIVER OF THE YEAR AWARD
THE MICROLISE DRIVER OF THE YEAR AWARDS ARE NOW CLOSED.
WE ARE CURRENTLY ASSESSING THE NOMINATIONS SUBMITTED AND WILL ANNOUNCE THE SHORTLIST 23RD MARCH
The Microlise Driver of the Year Award is based on telematics data collected throughout 2016.
Details are available in the FAQ section, but with over 120,000 drivers expected to be considered for the awards at the very beginning of the process, those drivers shortlisted will have to demonstrate best in class performance behind the wheel!
As this category is data based, nominations are not accepted (please read on to learn about the categories that ARE nomination based).
Nominations can be submitted for the following awards which are judged purely on the information provided by the Transport Operator.
The closing date for these awards has been extended to 24th February 2017
YOUNG DRIVER OF THE YEAR
According to RHA figures, the shortage of HGV drivers in the UK stands at 45,000. With the average age of drivers well above fifty years of age, young talent is vital for the future of the industry. This category recognises drivers below the age of thirty who are demonstrating excellence.
MOST IMPROVED DRIVER OF THE YEAR
The Most Improved category aims to recognise any driver, either experienced or new to the profession, who have shown a demonstrable marked improvement in performance in 2016.
This category awards those drivers who deliver an exemplary level of service that acts as an example to others with their organisations. They ‘go the extra mile’ when carrying out their duties, showing great commitment to get the job done, have a positive outlook and are a role model for young drivers.
This category recognises drivers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty by doing something exceptional whilst carrying out their job as a HGV driver during 2016.
Drivers in this category are usually the most understated, who have been dedicated to their job for some time and consistently deliver a great level of performance. The Lifetime Achievement award is aimed at drivers, or former drivers, who have given outstanding and long-term service to their organisation, or multiple organisations, over their careers.
A recently added category, the Driver Excellence award was given to the company featuring the most drivers across our initial shortlists for those awards based on telematics-based driving performance. Having multiple drivers appear in shortlists demonstrates a commitment to quality and safety, which this award will recognise.
