Cliff Switzer for juggling plates and finding time to create the Employee of the month compilation photos and editing a few videos on the side for us. Above and beyond. Thanks Cliff.


Thank you to the thirty-seven people (84%) that took the survey. Also to those of you that left specific feedback. Some of the scores & feedback will be discussed at the November 9th roundtable.


I will preview by telling you that the overwhelming feedback from the recent survey centered around company vehicle GPS speed thresholds. We can talk about that more at the November 9th Roundtable and the November 7th safety meeting if you would like further discussion. I am also available for a visit most any day of the week.

Our records were consistently showing excessive top-end speeds that were not defensible (20-24 mph over). From the home office in Houston Texas, here is a clip of the top six from one week in June.

The GPS thresholds are global settings (we can't make individual tweaks) that had to be adjusted to deter speeds that could cause us serious insurance premium fee increases. We have set these thresholds to protect the company. Our office has 25 active vehicles and there are 130 active vehicles across the Lone Star universe. It cost a good deal to insure and maintain these vehicles.
