Many staff in HR roles are affected by fleet risk and driver management at least to some level. In fact it's often a responsibility that defaults to the HR department. Provision of vehicles, licence checking, authorising personal vehicle usage and mileage reclaims, checking grey fleet insurance to name just a few tasks that might fall to the HR team.
