Company transportation….

René Jorissen on October 23, 2008 1 Comment

Today I am working at a customer who has two locations in a very very small town. The “head quarters” is located in the center of town and the factory is located outside the town. On both locations I have to replace all network components, so there is some traveling between both locations.

So one of the employees tells me: “Lets take company transportation to get to the other location.” So I think: “Nice, lets be lazy and take a car, like real IT people would do.” But instead of taking a car, I have to take a bicycle!!!! This customer really bought about 10 bicycles for transportation between both locations.

Man, it is years ago that I used a bicycle, but it was fun and good for my shape. Not only engineers are taking the bicycle, but also businessmen who visit this customer take a bicycle to the other location. Looks cool, all the businessmen in suite on a bicycle.

I really like the idea of taking the bicycle. In the Netherlands it is common that people use a bicycle, so maybe more companies should follow this example…
