If you are good at driving a car and have a relatively good geography, you may want to work as an executive driver. Of course, being a good driver is essential to becoming an executive driver, but that's not enough. In this article, I will explain what kind of driving skill is required of an officer driver and what kind of personality is suitable for him.
■ Driving skills required of executive drivers
An officer driver is a driver who transfers officers including the president of a company. It goes without saying that people who are good at driving as long as they work as a driver, but when it comes to picking up and dropping off top-class companies, a high level of driving skill is required. When doing business, it is necessary to prioritize safety first and foremost. Drive according to traffic rules and be careful not to get involved in an accident. It is also important to be able to drive comfortably. Officer drivers need to drive efficiently, but they also want to be aware of the balance with comfort. Try to start, stop, and turn smoothly, and learn how to accelerate and decelerate so that officers can relax in the car. Thorough cleaning of the inside of the car to make you feel comfortable, and careful consideration such as adjusting the air conditioning according to the tastes of the officers are also useful.
As a driver's knowledge, it is also important to stop at a position where it is easy to get on and off. This requires the skill to stop at an appropriate place considering the opening and closing space of the door and the condition of the feet. Also, remember the etiquette of opening the door at the timing of getting on and off the officer and holding an umbrella on a rainy day. Many of the officers are busy, so we want them to be as efficient as possible to get to their destination. It is also the role of the officer driver to make a comfortable driving plan, check the route and traffic information, and operate without waste.
■ What kind of personality is suitable for you?
There are several characteristics of a personality that is suitable for executive drivers. First of all, it is an absolute requirement that there is little waste and that confidentiality can be maintained. There is a duty of confidentiality regarding what you see and hear in the car, and you must not leak any information to your business partners or even in your own home, which has nothing to do with your work. Communication skills that allow you to collaborate with others are necessary, but basically it is important that you have a firm mouth and trust.
It is also important to be able to drive with a calm feeling at all times with little emotional ups and downs. The work of officers is accompanied by schedule changes. It is not uncommon for destinations to change suddenly or for scheduled times to change significantly. Even in such a case, a driver who can calmly drive safely as usual and respond flexibly according to the situation is a strong ally for officers. And, of course, the ability to prioritize clients over yourself is also important. A person who can always think and act in advance of the tastes and requests of officers will be useful because he is a person who is effective in many fields.
■ Suitable if you have both driving skills and personality
In order to become an executive driver, in addition to having stable and high driving skills, it is also necessary to meet personality conditions such as the firmness of the mouth that can keep confidentiality and the ability to respond flexibly to things. At this stage, some people may feel that they are good at driving but do not meet their personality requirements. In that case, hone the qualities required as an officer driver and acquire proper etiquette and manners. On the other hand, if you feel that you meet conditions other than driving skills, you can improve your driving skills and gain a driving history to get closer to the right position. It is also essential to make a record of no accidents and no violations for at least 3 to 5 years.
If you already feel that you meet both requirements, you are considered a good driver. How about aiming to be an executive driver with confidence as a qualified person? The job of an executive driver is a job that requires various skills and attentiveness, but it is also a job that is highly rewarding and contributes to society. By working with pride, you will be able to spend a fulfilling day.

■What should I do about the education of drivers? Safety education that changes the consciousness of
Automobile operators must provide guidance and supervision to their drivers in various aspects. Above all, safety education, which further raises awareness of safety, is very important, and is being carried out by many transportation companies. This article introduces how driver safety education can be implemented for those who instruct and supervise drivers.
1. Accident rate is decreasing due to safety education
Safety education for drivers has increased safety awareness, and the accident rate has decreased. There are various causes of accidents, such as impatience, carelessness, and blind spots in the driver's seat. Trucks with a high cab are thought to have better visibility, but trucks actually have more blind spots than passenger cars. Therefore, if the truck fails to confirm safety, it can lead to a serious accident. In addition, some drivers drive too fast out of a rush to get the job done quickly, causing serious accidents.
By providing safety education, drivers can learn that trucks can be weapons and the importance of thorough safety checks. Raising the safety awareness of drivers themselves leads to the prevention of traffic accidents. In particular, introducing the tragedy of truck accidents and providing near-miss education are useful in raising safety awareness.
2. Contents of safety education
In this paragraph, we will introduce four aspects of safety education: prevention of dangerous driving, prevention of drunken driving, thorough self-management, and responses to accidents and troubles.
2-1.Prevention of dangerous driving
Dangerous driving includes "tailgating" when the vehicle in front of you is swayed, "speeding" when you do not follow the legal speed limit, and "inattentive driving" when driving while looking away. In particular, trucks running with cargo may not be able to turn sharply even if they suddenly try to avoid danger, which may lead to an accident due to loss of control of the vehicle. Safety education points out such dangers and provides education to prevent dangerous driving.
2-2.Prevention of Drunk Driving
When you drink alcohol, you are less able to process information, pay attention, and make better decisions than when you are not drinking. As a result, they may not be able to make correct decisions immediately, and even if they notice danger, they may react slowly. Safety education also includes education about how long it takes for people to make sound decisions after drinking alcohol. We aim to eradicate drunk driving by teaching the dangers of drunk driving.
Freight car accidents often occur due to poor physical condition. Therefore, in safety education, you can also learn the importance of physical condition management and how to do it. It is important to pay attention to food and sleep on a daily basis to stay healthy, and to prevent fatigue from accumulating in daily work and causing poor physical condition. In safety education, we enlighten drivers to prevent accidents caused by poor physical condition as much as possible.
2-4. Response to accidents and troubles
In the unlikely event of an accident or trouble, it is necessary to take appropriate action quickly. In safety education, you will also receive education on how to wait so as not to block traffic and how to spend your time while waiting. By ensuring your own safety and preventing traffic obstructions as much as possible, you will be able to deter the occurrence of secondary accidents.
3. Company efforts are also necessary
Safety education requires not only the efforts of drivers, but also the proactive efforts of the company. For example, overwork of drivers due to long working hours is a problem not only for drivers but also for companies. Therefore, not only drivers but also companies need to receive safety training. If there is a shortage of drivers, the work of the drivers will inevitably be burdened. The company is required to take measures such as hiring new people to ensure that the driver's schedule is not overcrowded.
Consider dispatch drivers who have undergone safety training
Safety education that raises safety awareness throughout the company is essential, but if you try to do it in-house, it costs money. At the Transact Group, we not only provide driver safety education, but also introduce excellent human resources with high qualifications. If you are looking for a driver, why not consider dispatch drivers who have received thorough safety training.

If you need a secretary, you can arrange a temporary staffing staff. It has the advantage of being cheaper than hiring new employees and educating them as secretaries. I tried to summarize what kind of skills the dispatched secretary has.
■ You can manage and be attentive to the physical condition of officers and bosses! Fineness
Personnel who have been educated as a secretary at a temporary staffing company are educated so that they can concentrate on their work by supporting their boss's work from all aspects. Therefore, while managing the schedule as a matter of course, I always observe the situation of my boss and care about my physical condition casually. To that end, thorough training is provided so that you can maximize your communication skills. You can read what the other person wants from a casual conversation. This is a skill that can only be achieved by having an awareness as a secretary and training as a professional on this road. If necessary, you may have many qualifications such as various certifications.
■ Support officers with smooth management ability!
Dispatched personnel are learning about office management based on the ergonomics that they have cultivated while acquiring certifications such as secretarial certification. With the ability to operate the entire office, it keeps behind the scenes so that the company organization always runs smoothly. I am good at controlling the entire organization because I am training from various perspectives such as paperwork ability and management ability. In addition, since we are learning about accounting in general, we can immediately grasp the flow of money in the company and can handle all the work from accounting to general affairs. In this way, a dispatched secretary with multiple talents will be ready to work from the day they are dispatched.
■ Increase the motivation of executives and bosses to work and enrich the office
Creating an environment where officers and bosses can work comfortably, which is the original role of the secretary, is trained so that the dispatched secretary can naturally learn by learning first. Since all the troublesome document preparation work is handled on your behalf, officers and bosses can be freed from chores and can concentrate on their original work. As a result, executives and bosses are more motivated. When the motivation of executives and bosses rises, it is expected that the morale of the entire company will rise as the surrounding subordinates will be stimulated. In addition, the dispatched secretary may have a wealth of work experience at other companies, which may provide appropriate advice and inspiration to the workplace.

People who are good at driving are more likely to be entrusted with executive drivers. There is a trick to getting executives to think they are good at driving. So this time, I will introduce techniques that make you feel good about driving and parking.
■ Driving Technique-Driving-
Officers are often busy, so don't you think it's best to drive as quickly as possible? However, if you are too rushed, you may think you are a bad driver. If you are in a hurry, the distance between vehicles in front of you tends to be shorter. Please note that if the distance between vehicles is short, the chances of sudden braking will increase. It's also not good to repeat changes to vacant lanes for speed. This is because it gives the officers on board an impatient and unstable impression. Inter-vehicle distance and lane change have a great impact on safety. If you are in a hurry without thinking of rushing more than necessary, it is important to try to shorten the time by selecting a route. If you arrive early even though you are driving safely, you will feel that you are good at driving.
■ Driving technique-Parking-
Some people may have a habit of parking positively in private. However, if you drive a car with an officer, park in the back. Many people are not good at parking in the back, so if you park smoothly, you will get the impression that you are a good driver. Repeating sudden backlashes can easily cause motion sickness, so it is important to calm down and succeed at once. Also, if you park forward, you will have to leave in the back. Departing in the back can be difficult in some cases, and if it takes time, it may irritate the officers. If you have to park positively due to unavoidable circumstances, it is a good idea to park in the back before the officer returns.
■ Tips for being called a good driver
It is important for executive drivers to have their executives feel at ease when driving. Of course, safe driving is necessary for this, but it is also important not to disturb pedestrians and other vehicles. It can be said that the driver is driving on behalf of the officer. Therefore, some officers feel responsible if they bother others. If you do annoying acts that make news, your image of the company will be bad. It is essential to drive with consideration for the surroundings so that it does not happen. For that purpose, it is important to have a firm grasp of the vehicle feeling. It is also necessary to keep in mind not to blow the engine more than necessary and to start the blinker early. Driving with consideration for the surroundings in this way is the key to being a good driver.

Some companies already have a secretary, while others do not. For companies that want to hire from now on, there is a way to hire by dispatch. I summarized the merits of hiring by dispatch.
■ No need to teach the basics! Attentive secretary
Secretaries are often tasked with dealing with and contacting customers and important customers. Therefore, it is essential to have business etiquette that does not cause discomfort to the other person, regardless of the situation or position. It is a serious responsibility because it may play a role that is the face of the company. Moreover, that alone may not be enough. It can be said that it is essential to be able to naturally take care of the plus alpha. In a large company, there is more than one secretary. Communication between secretaries is also an important task. This horizontal connection is very important for the smooth progress of internal operations. Depending on the secretary's abilities, the evaluation and progress of the boss who works with him may change. Skills that can respond flexibly to people inside and outside the company are indispensable. People who have a lot of experience in temporary staffing often have the skills to adapt to the situation of various companies.
■ A secretary who has passed a strict examination! Cleanliness and grooming are perfect
The job of a secretary will need to have not only communication and practical skills, but also an atmosphere that will appeal to everyone in any situation. One of the merits of hiring by temporary staffing is that the temporary staffing company conducts pre-interviews at the time of registration, so we can grasp the person to some extent. Furthermore, in the case of a secretary who has a track record in several dispatch destinations, the person in charge at the dispatch company often knows the evaluation at the dispatch destination and the usual appearance. Some temporary staffing companies also provide etiquette training and grooming training as part of their training. Therefore, you can be dispatched with confidence.
■ Because I have a career in my previous job! Providing services suitable for the dispatch destination
People in positions who want to concentrate on their primary job may be worried about spending time on other tasks. As one of the solutions in such a case, I think that hiring a secretary may be considered as a means to secure the time that the manager spends on the original work. However, when it comes to hiring, you may not know what kind of work you should request or who you should be. Unless you actually work together, it will be very difficult to determine communication skills, a little care, consideration, and compatibility with your boss or company. In such a case, you should consider hiring by dispatch. You can get advice on selecting the right person for the right person and hiring in general by consulting with the temporary staffing agency.
