TORRANCE, CAGovernment Fleet magazine will announce the first Technician of the Month honoree in June from the submissions received so far via Fleet Toolbox. For those not familiar with this program, each month Government Fleet will feature a technician on Government Fleet’s website, and in its enewsletter, from the submissions received from within Fleet Toolbox, which is free to join for public-sector fleet professionals.

For public-sector fleet managers, recognizing employees is crucial to good morale, and Government Fleet magazine wants to provide you with a new way to recognize the technicians who not only work hard, day in, day out, but who contribute great ideas that improve maintenance operations.

Qualified public-sector fleet managers can join Fleet Toolbox to nominate a Technician of the Month via this link.

Members of Fleet Toolbox, when logged in, can nominate a technician by clicking on the banner shown in the image below.

Key criteria to focus on when submitting a candidate are not only certifications and years of experience but also creativity, such as novel solutions to maintenance problems, cost-saving ideas, and the ability to work well in a team environment. For questions regarding the submission process or judging criteria, contact Government Fleet’s Web Editor Greg Basich at
