With the skills shortage crisis at an all-time high, Fleet Vision International – THE SHOW will be promoting innovation by delivering an inclusivity session, as part of the conference programme, that will provide solutions for fleet operators seeking to attract a varied workforce.
The pandemic and Brexit have emphasised more than ever that our industry needs to change to offer a more inclusive environment where all types of people can flourish.
The Inclusivity session/ Skills shortage session will focus on attracting talent to the industry from more diverse backgrounds, including more women, ethnic minorities and young people.
Inclusivity for all in fleet and transport
Ann-Marie Knegt, Creative Director Visie Communications/ Editor Fleet Vision International, will be chairing the afternoon’s proceedings.
Nathan Wilson from Allison Transmission will be delivering a highly personal account about what it means to be black in the fleet and transport industry. ‘During my presentation, I will be highlighting my personal experiences as a 40-year veteran in the industry. It is vital to have a diverse workforce. Our industry needs to celebrate inclusivity, so we can lead and become innovators. Attending the inclusivity and skill shortage session is essential to promote innovation in your organisation,’ commented Nathan.
