In 2011, The SCOOTER Store managed a fleet of over 500 vehicles that traveled over 22 million miles, enabling company employees to provide seniors and disabled Americans with the convenience of in-home delivery and service of the power wheelchairs, electric scooters, and other home care products they require to live safe and independent at home.
"The SCOOTER Store is constantly looking for ways to achieve cost savings, manage safety, and maintain employee satisfaction so we may serve our customers as efficiently as possible," said Mark Leita, Vice President of External Relations and Government Affairs for The SCOOTER Store. "In making fleet management decisions, we utilize a 3-way test philosophy: is it good for the customer, good for the employee, and good for the company. We are honored to receive the Best Practices Award from Runzheimer," added Leita.
Runzheimer TEM Best Practices awards and process are similar to the "Best Places to Work" survey process which has continued to gain popularity and applicants each year. The Runzheimer TEM Best Practices awards identify, recognize and share best practices in employee mobility and develop awareness of how those practices create a competitive advantage for participating organizations.
