WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA
Four Seasons Compassion for Life, a nonprofit provider of hospice and palliative care, announced it will partner with Enterprise Fleet Management. Four Seasons serves 11 counties in Western North Carolina, and its employees travel anywhere from five to 250 miles a day providing in-home healthcare. In light of the importance of vehicles to employee dependability and care for people with serious illnesses, executives determined it was wiser to invest in a fleet than in office upgrades. In addition to saving the company an estimated $30,000 a year, the move is expected to improve employee wellness by reducing automobile-related stress. Enterprise delivered a total of 20 vehicles, Nissan Sentras and Jukes, to Four Seasons’ offices wrapped in the company logo, which is expected to improve brand visibility. The clinicians and community staff who drive the cars are given fuel and maintenance cards. Enterprise will manage the fleet, tracking fuel and mileage to schedule preventive maintenance. It also handles licensing, registration, and vehicle insurance. Enterprise Fleet manages fleets of 20 vehicles or more for public and private corporations and nonprofits. With over 50 offices in the United States and Canada, the company manages over 430,000 vehicles.
