Nestlé Pakistan in collaboration with the National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) established the first drivers’ training institute near Sheikhupura with the objective of ensuring the safety and well-being of the communities it operates in.
The Nestlé-NH&MP Drivers Training Institute is a fully equipped facility that has been providing training under the supervision of experts, not just to the drivers of Nestlé Pakistan and NH&MP, but also catering for the drivers’ training needs of other public and corporate organisations of the country. The entire facility features a driving safety training track, two blocks comprising classrooms and also a high-tech driving simulator. Till date, the Drivers Safety Programme has trained more than 15,000 drivers including over 4,000 Nestlé drivers.
Apart from the professional and economic impact, the drivers’ training programme has also created a positive social impact not only on the drivers themselves, but also on their families and the communities that they live in.
The company is in the process of replicating the existing initiatives in Karachi with NH&MP’s collaboration. The new facility will focus on safe driving training for drivers in Sindh.
