"driving on company business"

Recommended Posts

Kenny同志

I am translating a couple of corporate policies for a British client. One of them, which is named "[reference number] Driving on Company Business", is mentioned in other policies. But I don't have the document. 

 

I am very puzzled as to the exact meaning of this title as none of the definitions of 'drive' seems to fit here. Can anyone help? Thanks.

My guess it means using the car for company purposes.

Not sure of the context. But that's a phrase that would usually refer to operating a vehicle in the course of the employer's business. Driving a car to work doesn't fit. Driving to meet up with a client does.

As above, sounds like a HR policy document about the rules and regulations when you get a company car or using your own personal car for company business. e.g. a sales man using his own car for business would not be covered by his own personal insurance etc

 

I do remember getting a these type documents in every job but i never read them  :)
