STS Highlights: February 2020

There has been a notable shift in business’ attitudes and endorsement of Valentine’s Day. In the last few years, the holiday has been tied to gestures amoung coworkers that could be considered sexual harassment. Annual sexual harassment awareness training can be a great tool and reminder for employees. If your organization is in need, we can help!

On a lighter note, kids still enjoy Valentine’s day so we also have free, printable
“Be My Valentine” cards you can pass out to your riders. 🙂

All the best,
Patrick

Create S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Studies show that people who write their goals are more likely to achieve those goals. When was the last time you wrote down your goals? Create S.M.A.R.T. goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results-focused, and Time-bound.

Take a moment to reflect on 2019 and set the tone for a positive 2020. WRITE A GOAL and work to achieve it!

If STS can help in any way, whether with training, networking, advice, or guidance, please let us know.

Be safe during the upcoming heavy travel season. The winter holiday season can be very busy and exciting, but PLEASE remember to be aware of your surroundings while driving and safely share the road with pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, school buses, and other automobiles.

We hope this month’s selections provide timely reminders for driving and give you some inspiration as we approach the end of the year. Please utilize them as much as possible. We look forward to an exciting new year!
