PTI 3/2014: HR and management, out of focus?

Share & Print:

Of the thousands of contacts in UITP’s database, less than 10% have expressed an interest in the subjects of human resources and management.

Why is this?

It may be because of the fact that personnel costs account for up to 80% of operational costs, and public transport companies are more likely to see staff principally as a burdensome financial issue. However, the key to performance and productivity lies in the ability of the company to turn this cost factor into a success factor.

The Exhibition is a showcase for the very latest developments and innovations the public transport industry has to offer, with over 320 international exhibitors flocking to Geneva to display their wares at the last edition in 2013.
