Landslide Limousine Mission
To provide safe, reliable, and courteous transportation to the public, while seeing each ride through the passenger's eyes.

Landslide Limousines is a new transportation company in the region of Austin, Texas; with the potential to make a significant impact on the market. Given the proper organizational business strategy and performance management framework, Atwood and Allen Consulting are confident in the ability to meet and surpass the organization's goals for annual revenue; while minimizing employee turnover. This goal will be accomplished by implementing the subsequent performance management plan. This plan is rooted in the formation and belief in the company's vision and mission statement. Building a place in the transportation industry is dependent on the creation and implementation of strategic goals with regard to employee performance. An in depth job analysis will determine performance indicators and targets, to lead the organization to success. While success will not be immediate, Atwood and Allen is confident that the recommended system for employee appraisals and continuous feedback will foster professional growth.

While wages remain the same, employees save on the cost of renting the vehicles; whereas Landslide Limousines is dedicated to providing vehicles at no cost to the chauffeurs.
