Overcoming Artist’s Block: Instilling a Distraction- and Phone-Free Driving Culture for Employees

Artist’s block can prevent the most imaginative, expressive creators from focusing on their projects. With a constant influx of information and the world changing rapidly around us, employee drivers—like artists—can easily suffer from distraction. An unexpected call, a quick glance at a text message, or fumbling with the GPS; there are so many cellphone and hands-free distractions on the road that can lead to costly or even deadly outcomes for a nonprofit. The average text will take a driver’s eyes off of the road for 5 seconds; traveling at 55mph, that is the distance of a football field. It’s no surprise that driving is one of the highest risk activities that your staff can engage in. Not having a cellphone-free driving culture can be one of the biggest risks your organization can take.

In this interactive workshop, we will explore how to implement policies for cell phone and hands-free device usage in organizations, that will in turn prevent auto-related accidents and keep your insurance rates from skyrocketing. Empower your employees to overcome driving distractions, so—like inspired, industrious artists—they can let their passion and creativity for your mission shine through.
